Series VII: Addendum

This eclectic series contains a range of writings in a variety of genres and formats, and personal material.

Found here are several hand-written and bound drafts of Ferrero's novel La Terza Roma, dating from 1920 to 1925 and a manuscript of Reconstruction (1941) one of Ferrero's last works.

The bulk of the lessons and lectures in this series are in French and were given at the University of Geneva while Ferrero was exiled in Switzerland. The lessons consist on topics of European history with emphasis on 18th and 19th century issues, such as the French Revolution, the Versailles Treaty and the First World War.

Found here are notes made by Ferrero on the first edition of Das Capital in French, published in 1871 and one of Ferrero's first written works, East and West, dated 1892.

Published articles and essays in this series date primarily from 1890 to 1940 and include copies of La Culture Latine a L'Epoque Actuelle, a lecture that Ferrero delivered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1907, and articles and manifestos written by Ferrero against the Fascist regime and Benito Mussolini. Also here are articles are on Ferrero by Helmut Goetz in 1981.

Clippings of articles written by Ferrero or regarding Ferrero, are arranged chronologically. Also included are a number of Italian and French newspapers (L'Unita, L'Illustration, La Depeche) and newspapers from Argentina (Italia Libre) and Serbia (Jutarnji List) to which Ferrero contributed articles.

The correspondence includes letters received from Italian journalist Giovanni Amendola, one of the founders of the Italian Communist Party Bruno Rizzi, Croatian politician and journalist Franco Supilo, and Croatian politician Ante Trumbić. Correspondence that belonged to Ferrero's wife Gina Lombroso Ferrero and three folders of notes and drafts written by Guglielmo Ferrero's son Leo Ferrero are also here. Finally, personal documents, such as Ferrero's 1871 school report, a diary with his personal notes and information and a scrapbook with a collection of clippings and pictures dating from 1942 to 1944, correspondence and family material round out this series.
