Voluntarism has undergone many changes in time, receiving external impulses and expressing internal needs tied to the services and work required. Voluntary service has gone from being a-specific and professionally general, to requiring a more specialized work division. The logic of «pure gratuity», that guided volunteers in the past, is ever more frequently substituted by a principle of reciprocity. This essay offers a vast critical historical reconstruction of the events of this phenomenon in Italy, and proposes an analytical examination of the main orientations that have characterized voluntarism in Italy throughout the years.
