The purpose of the essay is to overcome interpretative dualismbetween Italian and Serbian society about gender violence againstwomen. In a comparative approach it will find elements ofcontinuity between the decline of male domination in Italy and thedecline of patriarchal power in Serbia as a result of a variety ofhistorical and social causes that, inside the paper, are explained.The emancipation of women finds a block in the violence sufferedby partners in some familiar contexts. While globalization andunemployment seem to deprive men of the marks of traditionalpower, but "men in decline" have an post-patriarchal "identityrevanche" in assuming the dominant role of perpetrators in privatelife. Gender violence has an instrumental function within therelational dynamics. Also, gender violence has specific cultural,ethnic, sexual characteristics in the reality of gender identity.
