Tocqueville in Italy: the Origins of a Study Tradition (Roberto Pertici)

Unlike the rest of Europe, in Italy Tocqueville has been the focus of uninterrupted attention. The article covers the principal phases that have marked this developing interest in the peninsula: 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.
