The essay intends to analyze the phenomenon of the destruction of statues, and more generally of cancel culture, through the prism of the relationship between memory and history, between political, moral and identity needs of the present, especially on the part of some discriminated groups, and the need to contribute to an understanding of history with all its complexities and contradictions, without reducing it to the binary and identity choice of being for or against, as often happens when collective memory predominates.
