"The celebration of the Millennial of Castile in 1943. History and spectacle in Franco's Spain". Taking the commemoration of the Millennial of Castile as a case of study, the article explores how a concrete collective historical identity was configured and imposed during the early years of Franco's regime. The article highlights the importance of historical commemorations as key moments in the socialization of historical myths, putting History and historians in t centre of the research. Furthermore, the Millennial of Casile was a platform for Falangist nationalism and also provided a place to put in practice a fascistic representation of the past. The analysis of this major cultural event, allows me to offer some conclusions on the commemorative culture of the regime, the characteristics of the historical discourses, the role played by fascist intellectuals, and the relationship between the national and the local spheres in the representation of national past.
