The essay reviews some new editions of Cattaneo’s texts (Dell’insurrezione di Milano nel 1848, Notizie naturali e civili su la Lombardia, La città considerata come principio ideale delle istorie italiane, Interdizioni israelitiche, Scritti su la Lombardia, Lettere scelte, Del pensiero come principio d’economia publica). From these works Cattaneo’s anti-elitism comes out clearly. His pragmatism and his being an Enlightenment thinker are influenced by a strong belief in popular sovereignty which made of him a radical, even though he had a anti-cesaristic attitude. As clear is the difference between his federalism of democratic origin and the « ethnic populist» belief in self-determination of the current stage of globalization. His idea of regional decentralization was part of the project to promote national modernization in a European framework.
