Qual è la religione degli italiani?

Religioni civili, mondo cattolico, ateismo devoto, fede, laicità
  • Arnaldo Nesti,

Confronted with a deep-rooted and widespread behavioural subjectivity, how can we be surprised that Italy has never reached a "civil religion"? This is the main theme of this book which provides an analysis of Italian society that goes beyond the religious matter. One might wonder, in fact, whether the lack of a civil religion can be attributable to the absence of a religiosity lived without distinction between the private and the public sphere. It could be said then that Italy does not have a civil religion or an entirely secular one as France had for two centuries, nor a liberal-patriotic-religion as in the United States, because it did not have a compact religion in its intertwining with the public and private such as, for instance, Lutheran Germany.
