Italy Report 1990

The 1990 Italy Report, now in its second edition, has been constructed around six dichotomies, illustrated by six essays accompanied by sixty phenomenological files. Through the “dialectic of opposites”, the volume analyses the evolution and changes in society and highlights the most representative themes of current events.

With over 600 pages, the Report is a useful tool for interpreting a changing Italy.

The dichotomies identified and contained in the Report are:

REALITY/IMAGE – PUBLIC/PRIVATE – PARTICIPATION/DELEGATION – LEGALITY/ILLEGALITY – PROTECTION/DESTRUCTION – RELIGIOSITY/SECULARISATION
