Abstract In this paper, we review some researches and relevant publications where aspects related to the inclusion of memory in the teaching of history (in the cases of Italy and, further, Japan) and the connection between politics and memory management are analyzed. Regarding this last issue, it is evidenced the importance of policy regarding the selection and forgetting in the institutional memory and how the commemorative rituals or the construction of an official history involves positioning regarding the memory. Finally, political positions that determine the selection of the memory in the official history which, at the same time, is taught in schools, are observed.
