Welcome to the website of the Centro Gramsci of San Marino

The Gramsci centre for the humanities/Centro di studi gramsciani is a research centre founded in 2020.

The double header – Gramsci centre for the humanities / Centro di studi gramsciani – is not only a very free presentation of the same content in two languages. It also refers to a dual function. On the one hand, the scientific observation of Gramsci’s work, his legacy, his method; on the other hand, research on some of Gramsci’s themes – organization of cultural work; intellectuals; politics and culture… – in their current implications: in new terms.

Book and Freedom: Changing Codes. The book between page and pixel

By Jeffrey Schnapp.

(Saturday, March 16, 2024, 5 p.m., Sala del Maggior Consiglio, Palazzo Ducale, Genoa)

The talk focuses on the theme of freedom not so much with respect to the content of books as to the book as an evolving material container. In nearly six centuries of history, the book has proven to be a powerful laboratory for the fusion and dissemination of data and meaning. In the context of the digital revolution and the development of powerful generative artificial intelligence tools that are already profoundly changing current models of textual production and reproduction, such a laboratory will continue to play a central role within our communication ecosystem.

Book and freedom in the Arab world: the case of prison literature

Elisabetta Benigni

(Friday, March 15, 2024, 4 p.m., Sala Liguria, Palazzo Ducale, Genoa)

The talk will start with a brief excursus on the history of censorship and book circulation in the Arab world from the medieval period until modernity. Afterwards, attention will be brought to the case of Egypt and texts written by detained authors from the 1940s onward will be presented. The talk is intended to reflect on the meaning of writing in the condition of imprisonment in the Arab world, in Egypt in particular, and how practices of censorship (or lack of censorship) have characterized the control of the publishing market and, even today, strongly condition written expression. Texts by female prisoners and detainees belonging to different political currents will be discussed, and attention will be paid to how the concept of freedom took shape precisely through writing during political detention and what the reading public’s expectations of this literature are.
