Keywords: Cancel Culture, Difficult Heritage, History, Fascism, Rome.

Our contemporaneity is characterized by increasingly frequent cases of cancel culture, often linked with difficulties in managing contested past heritages. In other words, cancel culture is often linked to the presence of a difficult heritage. But how generalizable are these two notions? How far can they be declined according to different contexts? And to what extent do they participate in the more generalized movement of rethinking history that characterizes our contemporaneity? Starting from some ethnographic cases linked to the Fascist legacy of the city of Rome, this paper proposes new reflections and insights on the matter.
