In this essay, the teachings that Mario Romani carried out both at the Catholic University of Milan and outside as a professor of Economic History, his leading role in the Italian “trade union revival” in the period immediately after World War II within the CISL trade union led by Giulio Pastore, and his commitment in political institutions are highlighted as the elements of a single big project aiming for the emancipation of labour. What Romani tried to do – and partially managed to – was to start a process through which organized workers could become a recognized social force and therefore could be elevated to the same level as other forces to lead the country and to protect democracy.
