It all began with a discussion, which then turned into a manifesto, before becoming a website. After one year, Struggles in Italy is a small, transnational community of workers, students and researchers living in different parts of the world. Our limitations have been many, and so have the struggles we would have liked to discuss in more depth but we couldn’t. However, we’ve also achieved an important result: we started to build something useful, a small window from which those outside of Italy could look into this strange and often misunderstood place. But we didn’t open that window in order to show a cleaned-up image of Italy, free of old and funny prejudices. What we wanted to show is a reality made of people struggling to free themselves from their economic and cultural chains, and to get rid of all the poisons that have been poured into this land, both literally and metaphorically. We hope we’ve offered some glimpses into this reality over the past year.
But we want to do more and we want to do it better. That’s why you should join us.
Consider to contribute to translations, editing and writing. We need Italian writers, native-speakers of English, French and Spanish.
