The scientific literature has usually excluded Gaetano Salvemini from the canon of the Italian elitism. When this ban did not take place, he has been considered as a precursor of the democratic elitism. The article aims to trace the path and the contours of the Salveminian elitism, with a particular focus on his language. After presenting the relationship with Gaetano Mosca, the article examines therefore three phases of Salvemini's political thought: the first, related to his transition from the Socialist Party to the founding of the weekly newspaper L'Unita; the second, dedicated to his history of the Risorgimento; the third, the US phase, connected to a realist theory of democracy. The elitism of Salvemini, therefore, will appear deep, complex and wide-ranging.

Abstract

The scientific literature has usually excluded Gaetano Salvemini from the canon of the Italian elitism. When this ban did not take place, he has been considered as a precursor of the democratic elitism. The article aims to trace the path and the contours of the Salveminian elitism, with a particular focus on his language. After presenting the relationship with Gaetano Mosca, the article examines therefore three phases of Salvemini's political thought: the first, related to his transition from the Socialist Party to the founding of the weekly newspaper L'Unita; the second, dedicated to his history of the Risorgimento; the third, the US phase, connected to a realist theory of democracy. The elitism of Salvemini, therefore, will appear deep, complex and wide-ranging.
