The topic of the readings this year:"1917-2017: lessons of the century" has been chosen for a reason as it needs a deep and thoughtful understanding of the past century: the consequences and results of the October revolution of 1917 which took place in Russia and became the defining moment both in the newest history of our country and in the whole European history of the XX century.
