The roots and horizons of conservatism, from Prezzolini to the present day. A perspective.

Prezzolini’s lesson, in its cultural and ideal dimension, with reference to generally understood conservative thought, is extremely topical. In the most long-lived and prolific Italian intellectual of the last century – of whom Gennaro Sangiuliano offers a careful reading in Giuseppe Prezzolini. L’anarchico conservatore – an anarchist trace has always been evident, inherent in a personality that could not stand the lure of fashions, the flattery of power, and that opposed with the intelligence of a free spirit. The story of a man that preserved an authentic idea of Italy through democracy.

With the journalist and writer Pietrangelo Buttafuoco.
