L'umanesimo civile e cristiano di Giuseppe Antonio Borgese

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[automatically translated] The essay offers a reflection on the symbolic-religious perspective that animates the entire literary activity and diplomatic-political Borgese, the pre-war years until his death. The writings of nonfiction nature, critical reflections in the magazine, finally, the first of his novels, Rube (1921), show how rooted in the writer was the need for a moral renewal through the building of a new culture and, therefore, to a new world. The political and cultural commitment in the years after World War II is the culmination of the constant quest for utopia in the sign of a civilized and Christian humanism.
