The «Moral question» and the construction of political judgment: The trials against politicians in Italy during the 1990s

di Luigi Musella
in Memoria e Ricerca n.s. 32 (2009), p. 43

The dynamics of the political crisis that did rock Italy from the first months of 1992 went far beyond mere legal proceedings. Actually, it was not only judicial inquiries that did trigger the collapse of the main political parties, but also a political and cultural climate that delegitimized them. The article expands upon this hypothesis, through the re-examination of the narratives of the events in which Andreotti, Craxi, and Gava were involved and of their historical background.
