Fanatismo is a one-off magazine that investigates the causes of fanaticism and why it is important to deal with it. The magazine is published on the occasion of the cultural manifestation We Are All Fanatics! and the exhibition You Are All Individuals! that I curated at Castrum Peregrini. During WWII, Castrum Peregrini was a hiding place. Based on that experience, the foundation believes that freedom without culture and mutual trust is an empty phrase. Fanaticism undermines these core values, which are essential for a free, democratic society.
