Abstract

Abstract:

The military occupation of the Dodecanese islands by Italian troops (1912–1923) was coupled with a restoration programme in the city of Rhodes that was intensified after the annexation of the islands by the Italian State (1923–1947), aiming to appropriate local history and the city’s heritage space. After the Second World War, during the early period of the incorporation of the islands into the Greek state (1947), Greek authorities also addressed the issue of built heritage preservation through an ideological prism, applying similar means. This article examines how each administration constructed and represented its own regime of (historical) truth, and how it propagated it as the only true contingency.
