The Association for the Study of Modern Italy - ASMI

The Association for the Study of Modern Italy (ASMI) was founded in 1982
by Christopher Seton-Watson, to bring together individuals and
organisations from the UK and abroad with teaching, research, professional
or general interests in modern Italy from all disciplinary angles.

Today, ASMI’s membership is international and includes scholars and others
from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds including history, political
science, languages, geography, literature and anthropology.
