Purpose: From the assumption that identity fusion will influence the processes of remembrance, this works propose that individuals classified as fused will remember<br>more in detail certain events of their countries, and the influence of these events will be greater in their identities than the influence in individuals classified as not fused.<br>Method: In a sample of 450 Spanish subjects, with representativeness close to gender parity, a correlational study is proposed through an online survey. The main objective is to test the possible influence of "person-country" fusion in his/her remembrance processes, for unpleasant experiences in that country, as well as, in his /her identity conformation.<br>Findings1: The two hypotheses proposed have been refused, due to there is not a significant difference between means in both groups, fused and not fused with their<br>country, for remembrance clarity and remembrance importance, as variables in this study, for the individual’s identity conformation in the experimental condition<br>unpleasant event.  <br>
