The article analyses the main initiatives in the field of social policies launched in Italy during the reconstruction period. Work, housing, welfare, health, measures to fight poverty: these are the main areas of intervention. The author dwells both on the political elaboration preceding the initiatives and on the concrete measures. An articulated and complex picture emerges, in a period full of contradictions. Social policies were a major topic of public debate. Gerardo Nicolosi, All freedoms are solidarity. Liberal culture, banks and bankers in the founding years of the Republic The essay focus on the impact of liberal political culture in the "founding" period of the Republic in relation to the main emergencies of the time, with particular regard to economic and social problems and to the role played by banks and bankers. The goal is to verify if it is possible to find traces of an action that can be defined "solidarity". Luca Menconi, Between Adhesion and Aversion to Fascist Principles. The Young Ernesto Rossi Collaborator of "Il Popolo d’Italia" The essay aims to deepen the study of Ernesto Rossi’s collaboration at ≪Il Popolo d’Italia≫, the daily newspaper of Benito Mussolini, for which the future exponent of Justice and Freedom would have written twenty articles, unraveled in the period between March 28, 1919, and November 29, 1922. The intent is to show how, far from representing a youth transition of little historical interest, this journalistic contribution of Rossi was, on the contrary, an opportunity to elaborate ideas and concepts which were then taken up again in his future political and professional activity, which, initially in harmony with fascism’s ≪left≫ orientation, would then have led him to radically detach himself from it.
