Theory and Practice. Heritage / Present and Future Perspectives

The aim of the conference is to discuss Republicanism in a broad, multidisciplinary and worldwide perspective, and to initiate a series of such meetings to be held in Venice every two years.

During recent decades, Republicanism has become a central concern in political theory and history. This body of thought emerged as the main alternative to Liberalism, when Marxism lost this role after the fall of the Berlin Wall. There is a renewed interest today, while searching for solutions to mounting populism and personalization of power; the issue of inequality and the crisis of democracies.

Starting from October 1, 2018, a new public transport line will be stopping in San Servolo.

Line n°10 from Zattere direct to San Servolo departs at 8.14 (arr. 8.27) and 8.34 (arr. 8.47).
