This article summarizes the main lines of the theoretical path of Claudio Napoleoni between 1956 and 1976, in relation to the interpretation of K. Marx and his heritage. The categories on which this comparison is divided are those of "alienation", "exploitation" and "abstract work". I aim to highlight the continuity of this articulated setting and, in particular, the famous idea of "two Marx", the philosophical tradition of the so-called "Western Marxism" on examining Napoleoni's attitude regarding some aspects of the debate on "political economics critique", starting from the position of Sraffa.
