De la démocratie en Amérique

Romeo Castellucci (Italy)

In 1835 Alexis de Tocqueville is the first European who wants to go off the beaten track of the classical Athenian model of democracy.  He closely follows the developments in the United States of America where a new democracy grows on the basis of puritanism and equality of the individual. 
With "De la démocratie en Amérique", Romeo Castellucci invites you to a forgotten celebration and to the initial role of the Tragedy : as a critical mirror of the political game by continuously reminding us of the aberrations and the flaws of any form of human government.
