The italian society


A reflection on this theme, although not extensive, leads me to share the thinking of the President of Censis, Giuseppe De Rita, who in his book "The eclipse of the Bourgeoisie", centers, with clarity and simplicity the crisis of our contemporary society: the Italian middle class, after the efforts do the '60s, is tired and not having made the unfinished step forward with the creation of an enlightened bourgeoisie (like the English nineteenth century). It, the middle class, has acquired some materials elements not having turned into a ruling class and being the victim of historical elites who today continues to manage the state. Now, this tiredness, sluggishness and inertia, can be overcome in what way? A new humanism, a new project with the human being at the center.
