The attack of September 11 against the symbols of economical globalisation and military power has undoubtedly influenced not only the international situation but also the internal situation of the individual States of the World. The G8 in Genoa, with its aftermath of fierce debates, had just ended. The disastrous handling of the situation, resulting in the death of a young man, had placed the centre-right wing government in a position of accusation, at the time undergoing a strong parliamentary and public opposition. The terrorist attack by al-Quaeda against the United States of America caused a standstill in the growing protest of the left-wing against Berlusconi. If the massacre of September 11 had not occurred, would a climate of tension been created equal to that which caused, after the risings of July 1960 in Genoa, the fall of Tambroni and a opening-up to the left? In researching of possible analogies between the two historical periods, this volume retraces the tumultuous phases of the 2001 Summit as well as the steps that brought to the formation of the centre-left wing. By reconstructing the events of 1960 and of 2001, Baldoni enlightens deeds, misdeeds, hidden truths that much of historiography has ignored or underestimated, often for political deformation. An investigation based on unpublished documents and direct witnesses, with chapters dedicated to the roots and to the identity of the “no-globals” and the controversial position of the right-wing towards the phenomenon.
