"Un roman de formation collectif". Les revues féministes en Italie des années 1970 à nos jours
"A collective Bildungsroman". Feminist magazines in Italy from the 1970s to the present day
This issue of Laboratoire italien follows a previous one devoted to Voices and Paths of Feminism in Women's Magazines (1870-1970). It provides an initial appraisal of Italian feminist magazines from the 1970s to the digital turn of the new millennium and the transnational dimension of contemporary feminisms.
This special issue, which is intended as an advisory report, analyses the up-heavals brought about in Italian universities by the Covid-19 pandemic, both in educational relationships and in the impact of distance from the space which is usually a hub for university life and the transmission of knowledge.

Mots et gestes dans l'Italie de la Renaissance
Words and gestures in Early Modern Italy
This issue explores a little-studied aspect of works about the body: the interactions between the two semiotic systems of verbal language and gesture, an aspect of body language. In their interferences, from the 16th century onwards, a profound transformation of the social and individual functions of the "visibile parlare" took place
Écritures de la déportation
The aim of this issue of Laboratoire italien is to consider the narratives of men and women who comment their experiences of the Nazi extermination and concentration camps. They have built a shared cultural memory that has today been brought into question through the rhetorical instruments of the post-truth era.
L'office du silence : les devoirs du secrétaire (XVe-XVIe siècle)
The office of silence: the secretary's duties (15th-16th century)
A central actor in Renaissance Italy, the secretary alternately took on the functions of scribe, counsellor, and emissary. This collection of essays brings new light on the various facets of this character. The secretary responded to crucial needs in the Italian peninsula, which at the time was grappling with growing instability.
« Sans recourir à la violence » : la société italienne face aux terrorismes et aux mafias (1969-1992)
"Without resorting to violence": Italian society faced with terrorism and mafia (1969-1992)
From 1969 to 1992, Italy experienced violent episodes perpetrated by far-right terrorists and then by far-left activists, while the South of the country was hit by mafia violence. These expressions of violence gave rise to a strong resistance among civil society that kept with a traditional protest but "didn't resort to violence".
From the medieval period to the modern world, prophecy has remained a privileged medium for interpreting and shaping Italian political thought and reality. The twelve contributions of this thematic issue show, by exploring the modalities and potentialities of prophetic discourse and the need for it, in different key moments of the history of Italy.
