A Reading of Article 21 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights:Political (Dis)engagement in the Context of Brexit

Ryan Service
Free, regular, and open elections are sought-after qualities of a liberal democracy. Reading electoral turnout as an indicator of political engagement, though, is a reductive reading and can obscure entrenched levels of political disengagement. This article considers the impli-cations of Article 21, subsection one, of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights (1948) as an assessment of political participation. There are three lines of investigation. First, the paper examines the model of political engagement implied...

Statue, penitenti e corpi immobili nei riti settennali di Guardia Sanframondi

Vincenzo Esposito
At Guardia Sanframondi(BN), every seven years, the Madonna Assunta is celebrated with a very complex religious ritual that “stages” the corporal mortification of penitents; the immobile bodies of the figures engaged in representing episodes taken from the Bible and from the biographies of the saints; religious songs, composed for the occasion, performed by the choirs of the four districts of the town. The entire traditional ritual, investigated and interpreted ethnographically, seems to constitute a sort...

Agenda 2030 tra Sviluppo Sostenibile e cultura della sostenibilità: una lettura sociologica

Angelo Falzarano
In an international context in which cultural policies are increasingly moving away from a political and social tradition to become a secondary element of economic development strategies, the integration of a social interpretation of culture into debates on sustainable development would contribute to improving benefits of social and environmental cultural actions. This type of perspective is reflected in the work of some authors, including Kagan (2011), which deals with the notion of a culture of...

Fondamenti del pensiero delsartiano: fra memoria e poetica teatrale

Elena Randi
The word memory in the Delsartean writings can refer to two different phenomena. On the one hand, there is the individual memory, a sort of archive that man builds during his existence and that allows him to connect several data. On the other hand, the existence of a much higher Memory is assumed, whose nature is ancestral and celestial, and which is similar to the one conceived by Plato. Once we gain access to it,...

Travestimenti autobiografici scarpettiani: metodologie di verifica

Isabella Innamorati
This essay critically examines the autobiography of Eduardo Scarpetta, problematizing the idea of the author’s memoir as an authentic confession. Analysing several declarations written by Scarpetta, the study shows how they do not constitute an accurate representation of reality. The main topics addressed in this paper are: the way Scarpetta claims his role as a playwright; the relationship with his son Vincenzo, who he designed as an heir to his theatre legacy; the conflict between...

Freedom and Forgiveness: In Debate With Paul Ricoeur Philosophy of the Will

Guilhem Causse
The question of forgiveness arose for Paul Ricoeur from the first moment of his phenomenology of the will. Isolating consciousness in order to describe its structure, especially that of its willing dimension (freedom), presupposes a distancing from the world, but also a distancing from evil. The precondition of this distancing is forgiveness. Forgiveness appears when consciousness is ready to reject the finitude that, of necessity, opposes itself to freedom: this ‘face’ of forgiveness, distinguished from...

“Gravitas me rapuit”: la saudade tra rimorso e rimosso in Antonio Tabucchi

Antonio Tabucchi gives many definitions of saudade, that from time to time show the peculiar and exclusive side of this entirely Portuguese feeling, that torments many writers since the kingdom of Duarte in the 15th century. The saudade has two fundamental psychological consequences: both the pleasure of delight and the pain. The manifestations of this complicated feeling, according to Tabucchi’s statements through his short stories and his critical essays, result to be basically two: the...

The acquisition of lexical and functional categories in English and German learners of Italian as a Foreign Language

Rita Calabrese & Silvia Palermo
The study of morphosyntactic development in children has a long tradition in both first (L1) and second (L2) language acquisition theories and literatures. In particular, «researchers of child language acquisition have long noted that children pass through developmental stages of grammatical morphology with […] variable or optional production rates of morphosyntactic inflection» due to incomplete inflectional representations of features. In spite of the large number of studies on these issues, specific cross-linguistic research which could...
