 Wu Ming - Notes on the Metaphors of Italian Social Conflict
Social conflict is endemic and natural, thus it is quite appropriate to use seasonal metaphors to describe it.

 "Autonomia" and Autonomous Social Movements in Italy in the 1970s
Alberto Melucci (1977, 1989) views the new social movements essentially as defensive social phenomena, seeking to preserve ways of life and sets of values placed under threat by the exigencies of a revitalised capitalism, with culture, the body and communication as the principal arenas of contestation.
Although the emphasis was always on the collective, autonomy was also seen as an individual demand and practice: the diversity of the needs of the individual could not be subordinated to the voluntarism of party discipline nor to the romantic leftist myth of heroic self-sacrifice.
Most of these ?armed groups?, however, collapsed under the weight of their own internal contradictions, seeking to be part of the >autonomy of the social= while engaging in an >armed struggle= whose politico-military logic of frontal opposition against the State was alien to the experiences and needs of the new social subjects themselves.

 In Italy, a Kinder, Gentler Fascism
OME — This summer the president of the Italian state broadcasting system, RAI, addressed the national congress of the National Alliance, the right-wing party led principally by what are known as "post-Fascists." The official, Antonio Baldassarre, announced that it was time to "rewrite history" — that is, as it is presented on Italian television.
Fascism, despite its claim to being a "totalitarian" regime, was, he argued, a softer dictatorship that retained much of the liberal bureaucracy, made peace with the Roman Catholic Church and did not share Hitler's obsession with racism and the Jews.
It was a war that pitted Italians against other Italians, and tens of thousands of repubblichini, he argued, volunteered out of genuine patriotic fervor, however unpleasant or misguided.

The other, along Corso Marconi (one of the city’s main thoroughfares) the next day, was the sort of scene one might see in the aftermath of a riot almost anywhere: shattered glass from storefront windows, charred automobile parts, and, everywhere, spent tear-gas canisters and jagged rocks.
Police cut off the march before they reached Bringole Station and started a major gas attack, lobbing shells like mortar fire well behind the front lines; people started collapsing and vomiting behind their shields; at the front, police were firing gas canisters like bullets directly at people’s heads and, eventually, shooting live ammunition.
The governments of France and Germany are putting intense pressure on the Italian government to explain what happened to their nationals in Italian jails; huge marches have occurred in every major Italian city.
