Massimiliano Valerii

The end of «the end of history»

Thirty years ago the Berlin wall fell down. With optimism and ingenuity, on those ruins we celebrated the «end of history» and the triumph of liberal democracies and of capitalism. And we believed that it was a linear and normal process. Now it seems that we are approaching a new fracture of our history. Future is a gap that needs to be filled. How can we reach it? When history starts again, we hear again the scream of old battles, the sound of the arms and of the revolutionary parades. Are we really projected towards another epoch? Let’s rely on data –  they will reveal more than we expect. How were Italians back in the days? What have we become? What will we be like in the future, in thirty years time?
