Archive Study Centre Gypsies of Rome- Foundation ex Campo Fossoli

In 2009, the “Centro Studi Zingari” (Research Centre For Gypsy Studies) in Rome, founded in 1965 by Mirella Karpati and Father Bruno Nicolini, donated part of its documents and its entire collection of books to the Fossoli Foundation. This collection includes approximately 1,000 monographs, journals, the entire collection of “Lacio Drom”, the magazine published by the Centre, as well as a considerable amount of grey literature (i.e. typewritten documents, photocopies and pamphlets). This incredibly complex and rich written heritage is currently being re-organised and filed.

The Memors project made it possible to conduct a survey of the available books and computerize them through the use of data sheets. The following three lists illustrate the monographs, the articles found in the bi-monthly magazine Lacio Drom and those found in other journals and deemed relevant for this project, as well as the complete list of the journals and the most important computerized documents.

Further documents will soon be available on our website through a link to the Fossoli Foundation’s homepage, which is currently being updated.
