Chapter Summary

Dr Giordano Giordana (Cohen) was born in 1913 to a Jew who converted to Catholicism in 1916. Tacchi Venturi supported the Giordano Giordana case in two letters to Undersecretary Bufffarini between January and April of 1939, but the only other document preserved in the archive is Giordana's application for discrimination, which contains unusually few biographical details. In his application letter Giordana highlighted that the Fascist government to which the principle of moral and juridical cohesion of the family nucleus was so important considered biologically Jewish in the promulgated racial laws those who had been born to parents who were both Jewish, in spite of professing a religion other than Judaism, but did not contemplate those whose Jewish parents had become Christian a long time ago and had educated their children in Catholic faith, as Giordana's father had done.
