  • N° 93 (3/2023) Re-thinking the quality of public space

    • Authors: Letteria G. Fassari, Martina Löw, Gioia Pompili, Emanuela Spanò
      Abstract: The many crises we have witnessed in recent decades, such as the financial crisis, mass migration and, more recently, the Corona pandemic and the tragedy of war, all indicate that the social changes we are observing do not follow a linear pattern, but are the result of inherent conflicts which produce contrasting or overlapping spatial effects. Tendencies to transgress national boundaries in trade, tourism or electronic communications are, for instance, contrasted by tendencies towards closure and new localistic pressures, re-bordering practices, and privatisation measures of all kinds (Knoblauch et al., 2021). In an attempt to understand the spatial transformations in contemporary society, Knoblauch and Löw (2017) draw on Norbert Elias’s notion of figuration (Elias, 1978), expanding it to introduce their concept of refiguration. According to these scholars, refiguration is an intrinsically relational term focusing on the interdependence of structures, levels and actions, maintainin...

  • The dramaturgy of floods risk

    • Authors: Giorgio Osti
      Abstract: Because of climate change, the basins formed by torrential rivers are under stress. Heavy rains combined with densely urbanized areas are an increasingly frequent threat. A solution are flood water detention basins to be built upstream of cities and industrial districts. However, these artificial basins are the subject of much criticism. A river in north-eastern Italy, the Tagliamento, represents in a paradigmatic way conflict and search for a solution to risk flood. To analyse this water security issue, a dramaturgical approach was chosen. The basic idea is that lack of intervention (actually, a status quo result) depends on regional water authorities’ difficulty to dramatize the issue with appropriate performances, leaving populations within parochial conflicts. The establishment of advisory committees proved insufficient, even if environmentalists and local bodies were involved since the beginning.

           trafficking and sexual exploitation

    • Authors: Stefano Becucci
      Abstract: As a recent phenomenon in the Italian underworld scenario, the paper examines the crime of Nigerian criminal groups in Italy. It presents the main research results based on a variety of judiciary proceedings and interviews with prosecutors, police officers, and representatives of NGOs working with Nigerian trafficked women and asylum seekers. The aims of the paper are to depict the organizational structure and management of the main illegal activities in which Nigerian criminal groups operating in Italy are involved. The first part is based on the main literature on Nigerian criminal groups worldwide. The second outlines the methodology followed, the collected sources and the research questions. The last part analyses the characteristics of their organizational structure and the main criminal activities of drug trafficking and the exploitation of prostitution.

  • La variante C

    • Authors: Vincenzo Bova
      Abstract: The pandemic is a watershed between a ‘before’, that was already suffering the fatigues of the crisis of the model of a Church’s religion, and an ‘after’ that cannot simply ‘resume’ spaces and times denied in the months of the most rigid lockdown in which the Government had imposed, and willingly accepted by the hierarchies of Catholic Church, the cancellation of any activity in presence. The pandemic has imposed itself as a total social fact and this characteristic asks for a broader reflection on some issues that have more to do with the presence in society of the Church and not just with a simple resuming of ordinary religious functions and services. There are consequences on the sacramental practice, on the community dimension and on the public relevance of the Italian Catholic Church.

  • Dante ‘sociologo’, 700 anni dopo

    • Authors: Fabrizio Battistelli
      Abstract: The possibility of sociology to dialogue with the work of Dante Alighieri is based on his ability to historicize his characters (well-defined individuals in highly relational contexts) while typifying their psychologies and behaviors. Georg Simmel spoke of a ‘dualism’ in Dante, a suitable category to describe his social and political conception. As to his beliefs the Poet can be considered ‘conservative’ indeed; but he is the first to distinguish the sphere of competence of religion (the Church) from the sphere of competence of politics (the state i.e. the empire). As to the moral values he regrets the good old time of his ancestors, when Florence was smaller and not yet invaded by country people thirsting for wealth and power; but he is the same person who despises the aristocratic pride and shows sensitivity for physical love and gender differences. With the words of Friedrich Engels, Dante emerges as «a colossal figure, at the same time the last poet of Middle Age and the first m...

  • Back to social classes'

    • Authors: Antonio M. Chiesi
      Abstract: Alongside a literature that considers the reference to social classes to be misleading, there has been a recent debate on the persisting importance of social classes in sociological explanation. This debate has brought interesting empirical results, but has also put into question the traditional schemes of classes that have been used since the 1980s.
      The diminishing ability of the variable ‘class’ to explain a large part of social phenomena is not due to the disappearance of classes, but to the inability of the traditional schemes to reflect the emerging aspects of the structure, which continue to perform their central role in explaining social inequalities. The article identifies and discuss the most important of these emerging aspects and their implication for the proposal of new empirical schemes.

  • Stefano Cantalini, Famiglia e disuguaglianza. Matrimonio, fecondità e
           posizione sociale nell’Italia contemporanea

    • Authors: Alessandra Minello
      Abstract: Posizione sociale e percorsi familiari in Italia sono tra loro collegati. A questo collegamento si aggiunge una dimensione di genere che distanzia le opportunità di uomini e donne sia nel fare famiglia sia nelle conseguenze che la famiglia avrà nel mercato del lavoro retribuito. Di questo si occupa Stefano Cantalini nello scritto Famiglia e disuguaglianza. Matrimonio, fecondità e posizione sociale nell’Italia contemporanea, un testo che, con una tipica architettura accademica, analizza in dettaglio sia gli effetti della posizione sociale sull’entrata in unione e sulle nascite, sia, nella direzione opposta, il legame tra eventi familiari e carriera. Per l’analisi utilizza i dati multiscopo sulle famiglie – Famiglie e soggetti sociali nella penultima rilevazione disponibile, quella effettuata nel 2009. Dalle dettagliate analisi in cui viene assunta una prospettiva sia individuale, sia di coppia, emergono risultati prevalentemente in linea con la letteratura nazionale e internazionale ...

  • Francesco Molteni, A Need for Religion: Insecurity and Religiosity in the
           Contemporary World

    • Authors: Giuseppe Giordan
      Abstract: Il libro A Need for Religion: Insecurity and Religiosity in the Contemporary World di Francesco Molteni tocca un tema classico della sociologia della religione, la secolarizzazione, discusso ormai da più di sessant’anni, e cioè a partire dai lavori di Sabino Samele Acquaviva, Peter Berger, David Martin e Bryan Wilson, solo per citarne alcuni. L’autore analizza il cambiamento religioso sia a livello sociale come anche a quello individuale, nel contesto di livelli crescenti di sicurezza umana all’avanzare del processo di modernizzazione. Avendo come filo conduttore da una parte la teoria della secolarizzazione e dall’altra la ‘teoria dell’insicurezza’, il libro sviluppa sia dal punto di vista teorico che empirico i collegamenti fra la dinamica religiosa a livello individuale (usando gli indicatori della religiosità) e il contesto sociale (applicando le variabili che descrivono le caratteristiche della sicurezza umana). Il volume si sviluppa in nove capitoli nei quali vengono affrontate...

  • Vittorio Cotesta, The Heavens and the Earth. Graeco-Roman, Ancient
           Chinese, and Mediaeval Islamic Images of the World

    • Authors: Massimo Pendenza
      Abstract: Come puntualizza l’incipit di The Heavens and the Earth, ciò che ha tra le mani il lettore è un «lavoro durato più di vent’anni» (p. xi), un volume lungo 637 pagine dedicato alla ricostruzione delle immagini del mondo e dell’umanità prodotte rispettivamente dalla civiltà greco-romana (prima parte), cinese antica (seconda parte) e islamica medievale (terza parte); anzi, per la precisione, ricavate dalla lettura dei «grandi intellettuali di quelle diverse civiltà: filosofi, storici, geografi» (ibidem). Si tratta, se proprio vogliamo usare delle etichette, di un saggio di ‘sociologia storica della società globale’, o meglio di ‘storia concettuale della teoria del mondo globale’, di genere particolare dunque, che unisce lo studio della società globale con quella della profondità storica della lunga durata. È un testo, diciamolo subito, che potrebbe sembrare pretenzioso per quanto imponente è l’obiettivo che si pone: individuare, attraverso l’analisi dei contesti storico-intellettuali, g...
