c.sciuto@micromega.net

I'm a journalist, editor of the Italian journal MicroMega. I studied philosophy mainly dealing with moral philosophy, politics and philosophy of law. My main areas of interests are the relationship between religion and democracy, bioethical issues, human rights and women's rights in particular. I've written "La Terra è rotonda. Kant, Kelsen e la prospettiva cosmopolitica" (Mimesis, 2015) and I'm working on a book on secularism and human rights in a pluralistic society. I have a blog: www.animabella.it.

Main Italian newspapers under attack by neo-fascist group

Repubblica and l'Espresso, two of the main Italian newspapers, were attacked by a small group of neo-fascists. This is the latest in a series of such attacks. It is high time to apply the law and ban neo-fascist groups across Europe.

Italian women have a plan to end gender-based violence

A notorious Italian feminists group is sick of hearing that violence against women is a private matter or a one-time mistake. To them, the phenomenon is deeply rooted in our culture. They are planning a global women's strike.

Has The Independent become a part of Saudi Arabia's soft power strategy?

Solving the problem of abuse by appealing to the Quran which, like the Bible, is an openly misogynist text, seems surreal. But when a newspaper with a long liberal tradition like The Independent supports such a claim, it becomes a problem.

The farce of Italy's regional referendum

On October 22, an autonomy referendum was held in the rich Italian regions of Lombardy and Veneto: a true farce endorsed by all political parties that cost tax payers over 60 million EUR.

Weinstein debates are confusing judgement with law breaking

One of Harvey Weinstein's victims is Asia Argento, an Italian who has suffered unacceptable attacks of victim blaming in our country. But this level of discussion is incorrect: this is a matter of rights, not morals.

The anti-vaccination movement demonstrates alarming level of social distrust

Advocates of "freedom of choice" refer to alleged "vaccine damage", which has never been scientifically proven. But mistrust in the "system" is such that it is not enough to appeal to logic and common sense.

Death in Venice? Not if it's euthanasia

While Belgium is even discussing euthanasia for severely handicapped children, Italy is likely to remain, even on this, on the dark side of Europe.
