  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The article aims at contributing to a new vision and interpretation of slavery as part of the Western legal system and wants to reflect on the connection between states, empires and colonies, in order to demonstrate how colonialism and racism are constitutive elements of modernity, that is, their dark side. This article therefore analyzes, on the one hand, the Italian and international historiography and, on the other hand, the cases of the French and Haitian Revolution. Recent works on the subject have included the study of slavery institution in the widest branch of racial and social problems, including the coordinates of Black Atlantic, the focus of a new scientific age.
