The essay analyzes how central Gino Germani’s modernization sociology was for historian Renzo De Felice and his overall interpretation of contemporary society and its contradictions. There is much evidence of the decisive role that Germani’s analysis had, especially in the last phase of De Felice’s research (the late 1980s and early 1990s), on the crisis of democracy and its connection with the problem of the nation
