Giuliani, Marco. (1999) “Europeanization and Italy”. In: UNSPECIFIED, Pittsburgh, PA. (Unpublished)
In this paper, we will pursue the following line of reasoning. In the next paragraph we will contrast two different meanings of the concept of “Europeanisation”: the one that can be found in the specialized literature of political science, and the one that prevails in the political debate in Italy. Bearing in mind this double interpretation, the core of the paper is devoted to an empirical investigation of the clues of Europeanization we can find in Italy. This exploration will be conducted starting at the polity/institutional level, and then continue at the policy/cognitive one. After this empirical and analytical journey, we hope to be better equipped for understanding the crucial relationship between the “new Europe” which emerged from Maastricht and Amsterdam and the “new Italy” outlined by Prodi.
