Reinventando la rivoluzione. La tradizione khomeinista e il dibattito sulla democrazia in Iran - Over the last thirty years, a constant work of reinvention of its revolutionary tradition has allowed the Islamic Republic of Iran to survive. The porosity of the institutional system and the flexibility of its revolutionary ideology have given way to the emergence of an intellectual debate which has become increasingly concerned about the question of democracy. The historiography is divided on the features of this debate and the reasons which have lead to its development. The author argues that the origin of the democratic discourse lies neither in the appropriation of the Western Liberal model; nor in a deviation from the revolutionary ideology, but rather in an original reinterpretation of the latter. The article explores the essence and the contents of the debate, taking into account its potentials and limits.

Key words: Iran, Democracy, Debate, Revolution, Reformism, Reinvention.

Parole chiave: Iran, democrazia, dibattito, rivoluzione, riformismo, reinvenzione.
