Forerunners of Italian municipalism Interview with Renato Accorinti, Mayor of Messina1 Messina is a harbour city in north-east Sicily. It is the third largest city on the island and has a population of 238,000 inhabitants. Messina has become the first Italian city to be governed by a citizens’ movement: Cambiamo Messina dal Basso (Let’s change Messina from the bottom up). Cambiamo Messina dal Basso is a civil platform made up of hundreds of people with different backgrounds and a common goal: to put human rights, justice and social equality at the centre of

Brzozowski and the Italians Joanna Orska Brzozowski’s preface to his Idee (Ideas) is a case unique in its kind, altogether contrary to the rationalist canon of modern science. He certainly was not the first thinker who recognized that a philosophical ‘opus’ is first of all a process as well as an active method of development and construction—the creation of the phi- losopher’s own consciousness. However, it is here as well that the philosopher begins his life-long summa by way of personal confidences that take the form of an intellectual diary. Not

The Long-Term Impact of Growing Up Poor – the Italian Case Chiara Saraceno, Collegio Carlo Alberto Torino Introduction Family origin is still to a large degree a destiny, even in democratic societies. Not only does it determine to a large degree the life chances, the constraints, and op- portunities one encounters while growing up and becoming an adult – via social and cultural capital, as well as family income. It also shapes from the start, in some cases even already in the fetal phase, a child’s chances to develop his or her own capabilities as well as his

Carmen M. Enss and Luigi Monzo During the interwar period, a myriad of construction projects (cf. Nicoloso 2012: 9-11), major restoration measures and excavation campaigns were carried out in dozens of cities in Italy and its colonies. The nationwide construction effort was carried out as part of the cultural policy strategy of the Fascist party aimed at re- shaping the urban and rural landscape.1 In the decades of the Ventennio, political interest in connecting with a supposedly glorious past encountered an already well-established academic field of

3. Young Italians on the move ARMANDO MONTANARI AND BARBARA STANISCIA ABSTRACT Since the beginning of the global economic crisis, 2007-2008, Italy has become increasingly unattractive as a country. The general economic situation and the employment situation in particular are negative, and Italians’ perception of their own country even more so. One response from young Italians is what has been called the fuga – flight. The number of young Italians moving abroad has been increasing steadily since 2008 and almost half of students say they would be

1. Italian Thought: Grundlage eines Denkstils The difference of Italian thought, however, cannot be gra- sped without some understanding of the difference marked by the history of Italian social and political movements. The theorizing, in fact, has ridden the wave of the movements over the past thirty years and emerged as part of a collective practice. The writings have always had a real political im- mediacy, giving the impression of being composed in stolen moments late at night, interpreting one day's political strug- gles and planning for the next

Italian Postwar Reconstruction and the Contribution of UNRRA-CASAS1 Ideologies, Models, and Actors for Architecture and Society Nicole De Togni After the Second World War, reconstruction in Italy was characterized by the participation of a multitude of actors with diverse interests and approaches and no unified plan. This was a moment of redefinition of tasks, tools, and disci- plinary borders in architecture and planning, including a deep rethinking of urban imagery. A number of coeval conferences, exhibitions, and publications mirror this climate. In

79 Annalisa Frisina THE INVENTION OF CITIZENSHIP AMONG YOUNG MUSLIMS IN ITALY 1 “Islamophobia” precedes the tragic events of 9/11, but, as in many other countries, it was above all after this date that some opinion-makers and politicians began to depict Muslims who live in Italy as potentially dangerous (Sciortino 2002; Rivera 2002; Schmidt di Friedberg 2001).2 Faced with this difficult situation, the Association of Young Italian Muslims (GMI), an active group of youths born in and/or raised from infancy in Italy, entered the public sphere

61361 361 Changing Patterns of University/Industry Relations in Italy1 MICHELE ROSTAN AND MASSIMILIANO VAIRA A major process of change is affecting the Italian University. Starting from the second half of the 1990s, a reform process triggered changes at three different levels of the higher education system: the governance structure, the funding mechanisms, and the curricular organisation. In the same period a similar and parallel process of change affected the Na- tional science and technology system. Both processes are having a strong impact on University
