The conflict apology: the “young” politics in “Giolittian era”

di Elena Papadia
in Memoria e Ricerca n.s. 13 (2003), p. 17

At the beginning of the XXth century, the European educated youth showed an increasing polemical attitude toward its fathers generation. In Italy, this clash between “fathers” and “sons” had a strong political impact even before the First World War. During the “Giolittian era”, young liberals, young socialists, young republicans and nationalist students challenged the leaders of their parties, in the name of an idealistic conception of politics, with a consequent tendency to deny the art of compromise and a pragmatic approach to reforms.
