Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[Autom. eng. transl.] In the current ecclesial context, there are few realities capable of catalyzing the attention of the media, such as the Communion and Liberation movement, for whose founder - the priest of Desio, don Luigi Giussani (1922-2005) - a process is currently underway beatification. To date, the movement's overexposure to the movement has been accompanied, on the other hand, by an underrepresentation of the same in the historiographical context which appears surprising. With the exception of a few in-depth essays and some general reconstructions, one can even speak of a real "void" for the years prior to the student protest, when Giussani's educational action takes the form of the Milanese first experiment, and subsequently national, of Gioventù Studentesca. First of all, a historiography seems to be responsible for this, as Marta Busani writes in the book "Gioventù Studentesca. History of a Catholic movement from reconstruction to protest "(outgoing for the types of Studium)," has often addressed the problem of Student Youth in light of the subsequent birth of Communion and Liberation, rereading its history, since its rise, as the development of an ecclesial movement tout court "and sometimes interpreting it under the exclusive light of the political oppositions within the Catholic world of the 1970s, marked by the traumas of the post-council and of the Sixty-eight.
