Norberto Bobbio

I took this photo in Torino at no. 82 of via Roma: "La Stampa - bookstore" where the poster is behind a closed-door. It shows a quote got from "Politica e Cultura" (1955, by Norberto Bobbio). Norberto Bobbio was probably the greatest philosopher of the twentieth century in Italy. The quote says: "Today, more than ever, cultured men have the duty to raise doubts rather than collect certitudes"... It's so actual especially if compared to those narrow-minded men so plenty of certitudes.

Ho scattato questa foto al numero 82 di via Roma a Torino e cioè presso la Libreria de La Stampa dove il manifesto trova luogo dietro a una porta chiusa. Norberto Bobbio -come è noto- è stato il più grande filosofo del XX secolo in Italia e la citazione (ingrandite per leggerla) tratta da "Politica e Cultura" (N.B. 1955) è quanto mai attuale se appena paragonata alle incrollabili certezze dei mediocri che ci circondano.
