La société italienne, des voies originales entre tradition et modernité

Abstract : Social changes in Italy since the Second World War have been often interpreted in terms of anomaly, even delay, or unachieved modernization. Without denying the contributions of these interpretations as well as the strong specificities of this society, we prefer insist on the original path taken by the Italian societies in their way to combine tradition and modernity while maintaining strong socio-territorial diversity. This lead to replace the question of economic development, welfare state, family, local traditions and social classes in structural perspective, which allows to show how “public disorder” interacts with “private dynamism” and produces a complex societal coherence that can not be reduce to an “anomaly” or a delay in the development.
