Is the portrait of an atypical intellectual. After a long career as a judge, and a spokesman of the Partito d’Azione in the Piedmontese Liberation Committee during the Resistance, Alessandro Galante Garrone became a university professor only at an advanced age. His is the best expression of a political culture - that of the Partito d’Azione - which took shape along with antifascism and remained alive in post-war Italy, transforming itself into an original historiographical approach. All Galante Garrone’s historical works are inspired by a strong civil passion, and devoted to personalities (Buonarroti, Romme, Cavallotti, Salvemini, Calamandrei) or those aspects of Italian and European history (Italian radicals, political exiles) that are notable for their spirit of freedom and independence.
