Il dramma dell'abitare

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] The drama of living

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[Autom. eng. transl.] In this text Petrosino tackles the theme of the house and of the link between the economy and justice. "There is no experience that can definitively remove phantoms, illusions, feelings of guilt, self-censorship and fears from oneself; consequently there is no economic calculation that can completely exclude from one's search for justice the insistent risk of that essential reversal at the end of which we are faced with perversion, indeed, in this regard it is not at all uncommon that the insistence on the former has led and continues to lead the subject near the latter, in fact, who can deny that in his dwelling the man has often ended up building not a house, but a tower or a prison or a den and sometimes even a tomb, thus giving life to an economy indifferent to every call of justice - justice and perversion therefore, and always intertwined between them: also for this reason the man is never a simple living person, also for this reason the man is not really at home yet ".
