Jacobin Italia is a politically left-wing magazine that offers a socialist vision of politics, economics and contemporary culture. It is none other than the Italian version of the US magazine of the same name which collects 60,000 subscribers in its print edition.
It is a magazine that was born independent and that, despite its worldwide success in an audience with a profound left orientation, wants to keep its freedom.
The 9th edition of Jacobin Italia is entitled "The school is not necessary". It is a number that starts from a profound reflection on the near suspension of teaching in 2020 due to the pandemic, to re-emerge the great critical issues still open to the Italian school system. From the American edition of Jacobin he takes instead a reasoning on the failure of the state and of the institutions that succumb to modern capitalism and become contestable, fragile and malleable by external agents with specific interests.
