Claudio Pavone was born on November 30, 1920, and died on November 30, 2016.
He was an Italian historian.
He was the president of the Historic Institute of the Liberation movement in Italy, the vice-president of the Italian Society of Contemporary History and the director of the review of historic-politic studies Parolechiave (Keywords).
From a young age during the fall of fascism in Italy in 1943, Pavone participated in the Italian resistance movement.
The experience, as well as informing his civil conscience and political vision, also influenced his activity as a historian, both with regard to his chosen field of research and the way in which he analysed it.
He published, for Bollati Boringhieri, Alle Origini della Repubblica (To the Origins of the Republic), a historic analysis of the route that led from the demise of the fascist regime, from July 25,1943, to the advent of the Republic on June 2, 1946.
Claudio Pavone passed away at 95 years old.
