Allegory of the Good Government - Ambrogio Lorenzetti

On the one hand, the notion of “Italian Theory” will be addressed on the question the label itself and on the potential genealogy of thinkers within it. It will be followed by a description of Mosca’s “ruling class” and his place in regard to “Italian theory”. Finally, the framework for a more quantitative approach to the subject, an analysis of the references from the scholarly journal, Comunicazione politica, will be presented.

All are welcome
