Valerio Romitelli – Partisans’ happiness and ours


Versus the deviation of institutions

Valerio Romitelli resumes the issue he previously addressed in Hatred against partisans (Cronopio, 2007) and analyzes partisans groups from an anthropological angle. According to the author, their experience of self-government and political education – mostly unrelated to political parties – can be seen as an experiential workshop we can glean from, to re-think a new future outside parties. An extremely current essay, analyzing democracy’s deviations and visualizing a political way to reduce social injustice, by concretely acting on territories.
