TITLE: Enrico Berlinguer, the city of Rome and the political scene in Italy in the “long seventies”
SPEAKER: Silvio Pons
DATE: Thursday, June 23, 2022 at 6 pm
LOCATION: Sala del Refettorio
Enrico Berlinguer, despite his shy look and his essential anti-rhetorical speech, was a strong and persistent presence in Rome. Berlinguer left a profound trace in national history, from the many speeches he held in Piazza San Giovanni to his funeral inf 1984. His universalist visions, the idea of historical compromise, the moralization of politics have found fertile ground in Botteghe Oscure and in the political life of the city, having marked an era that is now gone, but never forgotten.
