In 1999, a first reorganization of archival collections stored at Sereno Regis Study Centre was set in the context of a project issued by Piedmont regional Arts and Culture Council, whose aim was reorganizing and promoting historical archives and associations’ archives. The project was completed in 2004. These collections consist of 6,388 archival units in total, which amount to 138 linear metres. The archive also consists of documents produced by the Study Centre, five collections belonging to other movements and association, and thirteen collections belonging to natural people.

There are further collections stored in binders and dossiers at our Study Centre, which run for 60 linear metres. These collections still need to be reorganized and classified, even though a piece of them has been mapped and organized in a temporary chronological and thematical order, thanks to the work of freelancers. In particular, this first arrangement has involved a part of the collection belonging to the important fonds of Rome’s M.I.R. (Movimento Internationale della Riconciliazione – International Movement for Reconciliation).

Documents stored at Sereno Regis Study Centre cover a time frame from 1930s to the present. They represent a precious heritage to retrace the history and the thought of environmental and peace movements. One of the most significant parts is the fonds concerning the history of Italian conscientious objection and its social, political and cultural aftermaths.

In April 2014, the Archival Superintendence for Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta made a declaration of historic interest for the archive of Sereno Regis Study Centre.

Here follows a subject index and a detailed inventory of the collections stored at the Study Centre. The latter comes with a methodological introduction.
