When we think of Italy as a historical and geographical entity steeped in the destinies of the world, we often forget that we are surrounded not only by the Mediterranean Sea, but that all of our history overlooks that historical presence dating back thousands of years. In the Mediterranean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, which is North Africa: that group of countries bordering that sea from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea, and from Morocco to Egypt, and from Libya to Algeria, to Tunisia.
Not only has the Italian presence in those countries been present for thousands of years, but it has also been increasingly evident historically since the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with all the great transformations that these two centuries brought with them in the relations between Mediterranean Africa and Europe, in the colonial developments of extractive capitalism that profoundly changed Deep horizons of the lives of those nations, those peoples, their social systems and systems of power. The large presence of African and Middle Eastern immigrants today heading from Italy towards Northern Europe often makes us forget that in Mediterranean Africa, for centuries, European settlements, and therefore primarily Italian settlements, participated in the establishment of historical structures – colonial politicians who still today Distinguish all the various histories of the countries of that region. Important and important Italian communities in that region of the African continent, which today live and work and make an important contribution to the political and economic life of those countries.
That is why we want to emphasize the Italian presence in those countries. It is historically reflected in the diversity of fate that accompanies the existence, no less important and important, of the societies of those African nations that today arrive and live in Italy, thanks to the great transformation reinforced by migration cycles of extraordinary strength. In the past twenty years, all the history of the Mediterranean, the Greater Middle East, Europe and Italy. In the years to come, this history will become the present and future not only of Africa’s Mediterranean coast, but, increasingly, of Europe as a whole. Russia’s imperialist and imperialist war of aggression against Ukraine reclassifies the parallelogram vectors of European power. NATO’s southern flank will be weakened in favor of the Scandinavian-Baltic plexus, which will credit Poland with the historical role it played in the central centuries of the transition from modern to contemporary times, without suffering any more from the fate that divided it. For a very long time. All of this is and will increasingly be attributed to the United Kingdom, by virtue of its nuclear power and its affiliation to the Anglosphere of its intelligence and military forces deployed in the Indo-Pacific, a decisive role aimed at degrading Germany since its rise to the world of power through economics. And the industrial pact with Russia and China: The United States cannot accept this rise in global dominance that it is constantly fueling.
But in the Mediterranean, and herein lies the relevance of our thinking, the fates of the world continue to unravel relentlessly. And with significant changes of planetary frequency. China and Russia encircle North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa with their extensions of power in an anti-French, anti-Egyptian, (in Libya) and anti-Italian manner, and also promote that appeasement between the Shiite and Saudi forces, which, if that happens, will be and would redraw the Arab-Palestinian-Israeli relationship in a profound way. Irreversible. Moreover, the reaffirmation of Assad’s power in Syria constitutes a huge deficit for large and medium-sized Western powers. The Abraham Covenant is a response to this disintegration of power relations also in the Mediterranean complex.
Moreover, what interests us is an interpretive modernity based on a “concrete abstract concrete” epistemological circularity: understanding changes in history not in a kind of geopolitical bubble detached from business, cultures, social relations and communication, but with an expressive intensity drawn from the sources that give meaning to the history of the present. : Interviews, research and testimonials not only from scholars but from all actors in social, global and national life. We must and want to understand. And it is useful to understand this, because Italy is Italy even outside of Italy, and Italy, as in its millennia of history, is the group of people who have settled or are settling within our borders and within European borders in recent years. History is always the history of flows and relationships. It is a history of the settlements and transformations that characterize the lives of the nations and cultures of the universes—the realms in which our lives are immersed.
This arrangement of world history between Europe and Mediterranean Africa is a continuous exchange between worlds, not diversity and contrast as we continue to do and think today. Thus one is deprived of an overview of the world history of which Italy is a part. Italians live and work in those lands, and we need to know more about the economic and social structure, cultures, and religious and social practices in the broadest sense. And each of these historical presences has its double face: many Italians work in Morocco and many Moroccans work in Italy, and the same applies to the mutual presence between Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt. We have an exciting mission to bring meaningful, interwoven worlds to life made up of layers and layers of multifaceted stories and experiences. It is our source of inspiration: it is our object of study, accurate and in-depth journalistic information, documentation and creativity; Nazra is the view of anthropology and comprehensive sociology: an analysis based on research and therefore on the word and the search for the connotations of those “universal worlds” in which societies live and work and work thanks to them. It’s a communication mission we’re passionate about and unique to us.
