Reading a text you wrote years ago is a very hard test. Once overcome this obstacle, I have decided to quickly get my hands on the final work of my high school years. Just a few adjustments and a bit of restyling, but much contempt for the tone I used. Much moralism, prejudices and a tinge of arrogance.
What remains, after this depuration, is a brief review of some of the characters, themes and events that revolve around two main questions: how did the European (in particular Italian) intellectual, cultural, scientific and political world face fascisms? How can hegemony be conquered?
A few pages of ideas that I hope to be appreciable, the brainchild of an evolving youngster. For those who are interested, here you can find the full text (in Italian).
Peter Paul Rubens, Achilles defeating Hector (1630-32)
