Download E-books La cultura delle destre: Alla ricerca dell'egemonia culturale in Italia (Bollati Boringhieri Saggi) (Italian Edition) PDF

By Gabriele Turi

Il tema di questo libro è più vivo che mai. Individualismo, consumismo, edonismo, diffidenza in step with l’altro e attaccamento ai valori cattolici tradizionali sono i fondamenti ai quali si è ispirata l. a. destra italiana nell’ultimo ventennio. Con Silvio Berlusconi un nuovo blocco sociale è giunto al potere e si è mosso in aperto contrasto con quella che veniva (e viene) ossessivamente additata come «egemonia culturale della sinistra». Il percorso della destra non può evitare di ricostruire gli antagonismi e gli «scontri di civiltà» a cui abbiamo assistito negli ultimi vent’anni. l. a. nuova destra non si è dunque legata esclusivamente al carisma del suo chief, ma ha agito capillarmente nel tessuto sociale, riprendendo temi e comportamenti che vengono da lontano e che non hanno mai cessato di esistere.Gabriele Turi ricostruisce questo percorso, passando attraverso il revisionismo storico, l. a. riscrittura politica dei manuali scolastici, l’insistito ridimensionamento della Resistenza e los angeles difesa militante del crocifisso nei luoghi pubblici.La crescente presenza dell’estrema destra clericale sul internet e los angeles concomitante crisi identitaria della sinistra fanno da sfondo a questa storia politica dell’Italia recente, che vede tra i suoi attori principali esponenti politici di primo piano, giornalisti, docenti universitari e gente comune.
