Paesi Arabi - Islamici


  • Enrica Schivardi



The study starts from the idea that the Arab countries are protagonists of a story that involves and shares us about their successes and their defeats. The Arab immigration toward Europe and the last revolutions in North Africa and Middle East show us how close to Arab people Italy is both with its geography and its culture. At the same time these events make us aware of how much we have to do in order to understand the new Arab Muslim culture developing in modern world. Understanding how to put us toward the modern Arab populations is to know totally their story because modern Arab societies have inside them the signs, the contradictions, and the attraction of a past which made them always original and mysterious to Europe eyes. The study of present Arab world is to remember the actions, the protagonists, the ideas of the past that come back in a new way in the life, in the policy, in the conscience of today Arab people.
