Gli italiani in Europa

 Profilo storico comparato delle identità nazionali europee

November 1999

by Carlo Tullio Altan, Il Mulino (italian edition)

By reviewing a series of uniting factors (ethnic ties, rapport with the territory, language, memories,   forms of co-existence embodied in the institutions), the author retraces the series of historical events of the European peoples and the process of creation of the respective national identities through certain fundamental turning points: the fall of the Western Roman empire, the Christianization of the Barbarian invaders and the birth of medieval society, the establishment of the absolute states and their democratization.

A picture that on the one hand allows an explanation of the reasons for Italian “diversity”, while on the other hand allows one to comprehend the distinctive traits of the European culture, from the perspective of the relations with other great civilizations.
