Description


This book explains Italy's endless political instability and its historical, cultural and economic roots. It also illustrates why, even after the creation of the Italian state, Italy was never really unified. Piero Gobetti described fascism once as the autobiography of the Italian nation. This book explains why today it is possible to describe berlusconism - a cultural, political and social phenomenon in Italy- as the most recent version of this country's autobiography.
