The Right in an Italian Style

Issue 22 RIGHT and LEFT

The essay starts by calling attention to the historical reasons that have made the categories of “the right” and “the left” useful tools within the political debate as well as in the political theory and historiography considerations of all times and places. The essay continues by focusing on the original interpretation of the notion of “the right” that is offered by the Italian case. Leggi tutto »

Beyond the Common Sense of Modesty?

Num°05 SHAME

Quite widespread today is the perception that we live in the age of the sexualization of culture, in which the topic of sex becomes ever more visible and legitimate. There are some who understand this tendency in positive and emancipatory terms; Leggi tutto »


Issue 02 – Italy

Num°02 ITALY


(translated by Silvia Benso)

The current issue of Spaziofilosofico (May 2011) has Italy for its theme. It is our way of saying “Happy Birthday, Italy!” on her 150th anniversary.

We have tried to offer a phenomenology of Italy; we have tried, as it were, to catch as if by surprise the essence (if there is one) of Italy in a scene, a fragment, a situation, an image, a landscape, a book, a concept… Leggi tutto »


Country Code (/Prefix): Re-

Num°02 ITALY

The essence of Italy, if there is one, perhaps lies in a grammatical prefix. When one tries to answer the synthetic question “Who are we?” (given that such a question may have a meaning when applied to a historical collective entity in continuous flux such as a nation), one may attempt an analytical formulation: what we are might be expressed in the prefix “re-“ or “ri-.” Leggi tutto »


Cartographies of Italy

Num°02 ITALY

In a provocative manner, I compare two cartographic representations of Italy: the one by the Northern League’s Minister Calderoli, which was circulated last Christmas as a holiday card, and the one by Al-Idrisi, a genial cartographer and scientist at the court of the Normand King Roger II. They share the unusual perspective of an upside down Italy; that is, with Sicily in the North. Leggi tutto »


Manzoni: Revolution and Risorgimento

Num°02 ITALY

The author unfolds, in its philosophical ground, the theme of Manzoni’s idea of revolution that is applied to the French and the Italian revolution. The idea of revolution Manzoni opposes, criticizing Roberspierre, is the Jacobin idea of “total revolution.” This is not, however, the only meaning Manzoni reserves to the idea of revolution. He speaks of revolutions that are irreducible to such a model: Leggi tutto »


The Evasion of the Evasion of Reality

Num°02 ITALY

The paper evaluates the combination between a politics of fear and terror, and an ethics of paradox and farce, in the workings of Italian democracy and international relations. On the background of two major geopolitical events, the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the financial havoc produced by the Great Recession, the author argues that terror and farce feed on each other to produce not only a diversion, or evasion, from the real challenges of the moment, but more perversely, Leggi tutto »
