Un’amicizia difficile : il Partito socialista italiano (PSI) e il Parti so-cialiste français (PS) nei lunghi anni Settanta (1969-1983)

Abstract : The thesis analyses the relationship developed between the Italian Socialist Party (PSI) and the French Socialist Party (PS) during the long 1970s (more precisely, from 1969 to 1983). Profiting from recent archival openings (concerning the PSI documentation in particular),the research has the objective of reconstructing the relationship between the two parties "all round" by approaching the study from several different angles. Firstly, the focus in on their relationship at national level, describing the activity of the international departments of the two parties, the summits among the main leaders, and the participation in the party congresses. Secondly, it investigates what revolves around the socialist "galaxy", which includes the diverse panorama of the socialist press, both a space of intellectual discussion and of socialisation. A large part of the analysis focuses on with the study of the figures of the intermediaries, promoters of the connections and the translations between the two political parties. Lastly, the analysis concentrates on their relationship at an international level (Socialist International, European Community, Southern Europe) as well as on the structure of their local and regional networks, seeking to study the circulation of individuals, ideas, practices between the two parties also at transnational level (both at a "macro" scale and "micro" scale). The human dimension, the political character, the anthropological aspects between Italians and French: these are the three lines of research that aim at unveiling all the characteristics and nuances of what turns out to be a real “problematic friendship”.
