For An Analysis of Autonomia: An Interview with Sergio Bologna

Paginated PDF

Sergio Bologna, as one of the leading intellectuals of the Italian ‘operaism’ (workerism) Marxist current, has maintained a sympathetic but critical stance towards the social movements of autonomous workers, self-organised students, radical feminists and counter-cultural youth that made up Autonomia (Autonomy) in the 1970s. His essay on the 1977 Movement (in which Autonomia was one of the main protagonists), ‘The Tribe of Moles’, provides one of the most complete analyses of the social, political and economic origins and composition of one of Italy’s most important mass political and social movements, the roots of the present widespread network of centri sociali (squatted social centres) and free radio stations.
