No Future For You: Italy Between Fictional Past And Postnational Future
- Author(s): Rota, Emanuel
- et al.
The crisis of the nation state has become common sense in Italy. The inability of the Italian State to solve its historical problems, e.g. the Southern Question, has undermined the ideological basis for the Italian national project. The withering of national Italy is represented in fields as different as Sociology, Literature and Philosophy. The future of Italy is already postnational.
