Fabrizio Lelli's personal website

The relationship between cultural heritage and the formation of the individual personality is the main interest of Fabrizio Lelli, an expert of Jewish literature, philosophy and mystique in the Middle Age and Modern Era. "Si è il frutto di quanto ci ha nutrito spiritualmente e intellettualmente, si è il risultato di quanto abbiamo appreso in famiglia, a scuola, nella società di individui con cui siamo volontariamente o casualmente venuti in contatto".

Fabrizio Lelli edited Alemanno Yohanan's Hay ha-'olamim (L'immortale)

Abecedario di politica per inesperti

Enzo Baldini and Giuseppe Sciara

This Abecedario di politica per inesperti ("First handbook of politics for beginners") is organized as the column of a journal, but it can host contributions from different authors, who intend to illustrate political concepts and theories in an easy and captivating form. It is not addressed to the specialists, but to the "common peopole" whose ideas on the topic are, of course, usually confused.

Enzo Baldini is a member of the scientific board of Il Pensiero politico

Andrea Mariuzzo is the author of Mario Einaudi. Scritti sulla politica europea (1944-1957).

Alberto Giovanni Biuso
