The Pace of History, the Shape of Democracy #10: Umberto Gentiloni, Italy at the present time – the reasons of history

The reasons for the crisis of politics, institutions, economy, are much debated. Italy has undergone an unprecedented change over the last 20 years: people easily refer to a First, Second, even Third Republic. The debate sees on the one side the announcers of a widely predicted, irreversible decline; on the other, those who try to highlight the signs of a tentative recovery. Historians try to give a meaning to words: crisis, transition, European ties and international state of affairs. Where to start? Where could a Nation be heading to? Can we try and develop a sort of compass to help us finding a possible way?

Umberto Gentiloni Silveri is Professor of Contemporary History at the University La Sapienza in Rome. Among his most recent publications, L’Italia sospesa. La crisi degli anni Settanta vista da Washington (Einaudi 2009) and Contro scettici e disfattisti. Gli anni di Ciampi 1992-2006 (Laterza 2013), To Bombard Auschwitz, Why it could have been done, why it was not done (Mondadori 2015). Since 2011 he contributes to the Italian daily newspaper La Stampa.
