Tocqueville in Italia: le origini di una tradizione di studi

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


Unlike the rest of Europe, in Italy Tocqueville has been the focus of an uninterrupted attention. The article covers the principal phases that have marked this developing interest: from the young Cavour's enthusiasm for Tocqueville's "De la Démocratie en Amérique" to the early Italian translation of this work in the 1880s; from the analyses of Ruffini and Salvemini to interpretations seeking to find points of reference during the affirmation of the Fascist regime; from De Ruggiero's reflections on liberalism to those of Omodeo, an active promoter of translations of Tocqueville's lesser known works; from the studies of Candeloro in the 1930's to the new phase of interest during the post-war period.
