MicroMega, Italy

I work for MicroMega, a bimonthly that publishes articles on politics and society, focusing on issues such as social and juridical injustice in Italy and abroad, mafia, ecological crimes, political corruption and secularism. Before I worked for ten years for a small weekly, called Adista, that writes about the Catholic Church, the relationship between politics and religion and the new theological frontiers. I’m a feminist activist: for many years I have been part of an Italian women’s association (Unione donne in Italia) and now I’m part of a group called Femministe Nove.

Italy emerges as a player in the arms trade

Arms manufacturing grew in 2016 for the first time in five years. American and British industries lead in the production of weapons, but Italy also has a share of the death market.

Living will -- Catholic Church fights against Italy’s new legislation

Atheists' rights violated in Italy

Italy is among the 85 countries in the world where atheists and agnostics suffer serious violations of their rights. While apostasy and blasphemy are not punishable by death, the picture is still disheartening.

Ex-Muslims feel betrayed by the left

In Europe, the debate about Islam is too shallow -- perpetually polarized between those who want to build walls around a Christian Europe and those who automatically deem any criticism of Islam to be "right-wing".

When news becomes a new form of fiction

The phenomena of fake news is moving out of the digital arena and into real life where misguided reactions have deep social consequences.

Tackling the educational monopoly of the Catholic church

The Basic Christian Community of Italy declared that it is "incongruous and anti-historical" for the Italian Bishops' Conference to monopolize religious instruction in schools.

The Never-ending story of Italy’s biggest steel mill

The setting: Ilva di Taranto, Europe's largest steel mill. The characters: the mill owners and workers protesting layoffs. The supporting roles: the environment and public health.

Is Airbnb turning Venice into a Disneyland lagoon?

The rise of mass tourism, mostly brought on by the low-cost holiday boom (read: Airbnb), is changing the face of many Italian cities. City centers laden with priceless art and historical monuments risk being reduced to tourist exhibitions.
