After-word. 'Invisible cities': which (good-bad) man? For which (good-bad) polity?

Author

Listed:
  • Silvestri, Paolo

Abstract

In this afterword I will try to re-launch the inquiry into the causes of good-bad polity and good-bad relationships between man and society, individual and institutions. Through an analogy between Einaudi’s search for good government and Calvino’s “Invisible cities”, I will sketch an account of the human and invisible foundations – first of all: trust/distrust – of any good-bad polity.
