Cosa ci dicono davvero le parole di Pierluigi Bersani e Matteo Renzi?

David Moss   ANU

An interesting analysis of the language used by Bersani and Renzi in their recent television debate – a novel event in Italian politics – is reported in today’s (30 Nov) Huffington Post. I’m not sure what more general lessons we can draw from these fragments – but the differences with the kind of political language used by Berlusconi and the earlier leaders of the Left that Patrick McCarthy and others undertook are certainly striking. Adrian Lyttelton’s comparison of political language in Italy and GB, which appeared in the Journal of Modern Italian Studies (2009) 14, 1 and can be found here, also makes some intriguing points.
