This article examines Mario Tronti's early writings with the aim of highlighting an often overlooked element of the tradition of Italian workerism. In particular, the article argues that Nietzsche's thought had a significant influence in the critique of historicist Marxism that Tronti developed in the 1950s and 1960s. In some autobiographical writings, Tronti recalls that his encounter with the "culture of the crisis" was very early and that it was in any case prior to the period of «autonomy of the political». Indeed, Tronti recalls that, for his intellectual formation, Nietzsche was «decisive» like Marx. The traces of this influence can in fact be seen, as well as in the style adopted by Tronti, also in other elements: in particular in the criticism of Gramsci's historicism, in the criticism of the idea of «science» proposed by Galvano della Volpe, in the conviction that the working class is the bulwark against the advance of "massification" and against the victory of the "last man" described by Nietzsche.
