Borders of identities, obstacoles against the “enemy”, protection of comunity: the walls in contemporary age

di Marco De Nicolò
in Memoria e Ricerca n.s. 39 (2012), p. 5

Fortifications, walls, high technology: until today the presence of walls among nations and among communities, is very thick. If the fallen of Berlin’s wall, in 1989, had been welcomed from the world public opinion, this way of division has increased: Ceuta and Melilla, Cisgiordania, Cyprus, Morocco-Western Sahara… the list could be continued. From both parts of every wall growth opposite memories, hostile identities: building a wall is more easy, than pulling down it. Key words: Identities, Borders, Walls, Security, Enemy, Memory
