06/10/2017 – Cristina Cappelletti, ‘Sotto ristretta legge ragionato abbiamo’. Ethos e nòmos nel Decameron [‘Sotto ristretta legge ragionato abbiamo’. Ethos and nòmos in Decameron]
Law, rule and infringement are some of the key points in the analysis of Decameron. Boccaccio’s tales are set in a period in which there were not laws. The pestilence perturbs the city of Florence; the judges and the public administrators were killed by pestilence, so human and divine laws disappeared. This article makes an enquiry about the meaning of law in the most famous Boccaccio’s work. In Decameron we can distinguish four types of laws: human, divine, natural, and a literary law, which regulate the tales (modus novellandi). Already published in ‘Atti dell’ateneo di scienze, lettere ed arti di Bergamo’, Bergamo 2014.
24/09/2017 – Paola Chiarella, Di ritorno dall’abisso. Primo Levi, testimone agli estremi confini del male [Returning from the Abyss. Primo Levi: A Witness to the Extreme Boundaries of Evil]
This paper aims to describe the Italian testimony of Nazism through the works by Primo Levi. In his books, Levi reconstructs the factual elements of Shoah as well as the theories that led to the huge catastrophe. By an accurate narrative, Levi drives his readers into the most painful paths of evil, without hiding a thin but still living hope in the goodness of man.
11/06/2017 – Domenico Corradini H. Broussard, William B. Yeats. L’estetica della politica [Willian B. Yeats. The Aesthetics of Politics]
In ‘The Lady of the Lake’, by Gioachino Rossini, Helen names her shelter from the dawn to the evening shadows. In Yeats, humility is not known in its fullness. He sings the Celtic hero Cuchulain, tied to a stone, as Christ on the cross. Christ is the Redeemer of the original sin. In the Easter Rising, Cuchulain is the Redeemer of Eire-Ireland from British rule. Both devoted to justice. The justice in politics. The justice in law. The justice in moral rights. The justice in Yeats’s relationship with Maud Gonne. The justice as a cross. The justice as a rose in the heart. These are the fundamental ideas explored in this work. Is Finn again awake? There is another Troy to burn?
26/03/2017 – Giorgio Leali, Fenomenologia del giuridichese [Phenomenology of legalese]
The quality of legal language and the theme of its obscurity constitutes an interesting subject of studies for both linguistic and legal scholars. To investigate the connection between the formal and the substantial dimension of law, this essay will position the theme of legal language in the broader perspective of ‘law and literature’ studies and analyse some traits of ‘legalese’ explaining its sources and its negative implications in politics and society.
21/02/2017 – Giulia Pratelli, Diritto e Musica. Il terreno comune dell’interpretazione. L’esperienza di Arturo Toscanini e Gustav Mahler [Law and Music. The common ground of interpretation. The experience of Arturo Toscanini and Gustav Mahler]
Law and Music are closer than we might think. The main contact point probably is interpretation, that can be observed by different slants. This essay shows how the modus operandi of jurists and musicians sometimes can be very similar through analysis of the conducting by Arturo Toscanini and Gustav Mahler, two of the greatest conductors of all times.
