When on 28 October 1922, the Fascists seized power following the March on Rome, most Italian liberals thought it to be simply a theatrical change of regime, and that soon enough the experience of government would normalise the political movement founded by Benito Mussolini.

From a philosophical and political-science point of view, the elections offer an occasion for reflection on how democratic the translation of the number of votes into seats is, and on the endless debate on the ‘right to self-determination of the people’, as well as on the concept itself of the people.

The European observer who struggles to understand the Catalan question might take comfort in knowing that in Catalonia some of us don't actually understand what's happening either, and grasp still less about the reasons behind it.

In the literary imaginary – and especially in one sensitized such as mine, from my earliest childhood – the stories of frontiers have traditionally been the focus of a large number of legends, adventures, page-turning thrillers and wrenching dramas that for a time intensely fill the memory and imagination of a people who live on one side or another of the margins.

Generation E is a pan-European project that aims to collect data to help us understand the phenomenon of the migration of young people from Southern Europe who leave, at least temporarily, their countries.

For us, the lessons of the Spanish Civil War have until now remained hidden. Already at the time, Madrid philosopher José Ortega y Gasset distinguished it as “an illustrious war against death.” The Indignants, Podemos today revive this war, and Europe must not be frightened by it. They are not a red wave. If they revive this conflict, they advocate non-violence, the addition of conscience, and not its submission. Thus, they give back meaning to this conflict; this is why it is only starting.
Asymmetry calls for innovative federal structures. Rather than importing existing models of federalism, we should be thinking about what realistic model Europe ought to have. Such a model should allow Britain to have a genuine ‘special relationship’, very much as the Catalans and Scots aspire to a special ‘status’ if they are to remain part of their existing states.
Under the ‘social’ umbrella, Mr Giovannini is actually discussing policies aimed at two very different goals: the first goal is essentially an economic one and should be analysed with the tools of labour economics. The second goal is a political preference regarding how much inequality we are willing to tolerate between EU citizens and should be analysed with the tools of political science.
