Da Cesare Beccaria all'Unione Europea: un viaggio ideale su due secoli

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


In this essay we consider the personality of Beccaria (1738-1794), its intellectual and political profile in the Europe of XVIII century. Looking to his contribution for the re-organisation of the monetary system of the State of Milan in its European profile and connecting these to the thought of Luigi Einaudi, the author considers the euro and the eurodemocracy as a new form of democracy which has been built more on intellectual values (ideals, rationality, pragmatism) than on political powers, more on convictions that on constrictions.
