Aspetti dello storicismo di Togliatti

Togliatti always offered of himself the image of a “pupil” of Antonio Gramsci. Indeed, he was the editor and continuer of his thought. Starting from Gramsci’s work, he built a cultural policy and, in general, the new policy of Italian Communists. But his writings also show the pro le of an original philosophy and the search for a historicism largely centered on the relationship with the modern Enlightenment and on the main problems of dialectics. Between the unfinished essay on Antonio Labriola and the lecture on The popular classes in the Risorgimento (1962),Togliatti elaborated a vision of Italian intellectual history and considered the most important questions of theoretical Marxism.
