From 1969 to 1994, Cosimo Ceccuti
has been Giovanni Spadolini’s closest contributor in the historic and cultural
field. He was indicated in Spadolini’s testament as general secretary for life
and cultural coordinator of the activities of the Fondazione Spadolini Nuova
Antologia, which he created in 1980.
Over the past twenty five years, Ceccuti has dedicated many essays to his
mentor’s various activities, most of which are compiled into this volume. These
writings trace an articulated biographical portrait of one of the most
important figures of the Republican Italy through his formation, his
journalistic career and his political engagement.
