Valerio Romitelli – Hatred for partisans

A lesson we apparently haven’t learned yet

What has allowed hatred for partisans to settle in our “democratic society”? And what lesson can we learn? With a Machiavellian angle, Valerio Romitelli investigates the fallen of passion for politics, in favour of those careful rationalizations lacking enthusiasm and typical of the governments that, despite having different flags, are all the same. The author poses delicate questions and gives thorny answers. An enlightening essay, suggesting a sharp and clear analysis about the subject.
