ROSSELLA DOSSO AT THE LEG: BETWEEN STAATSGYMNASIUM AND MICHELSTAEDTER

10/02/2020

The culture and friulanity of Gorizia were at the centre of the meeting held yesterday at the LEG bookshop in Corso Verdi on the occasion of the presentation of the magazine La Panarie, one of the most authoritative voices in the Friulian publishing scene. 

The magazine, born in 1924 on the initiative of the writer Chino Ermacora, has known in its long history many successful testimonies but also moments of difficulty, overcome thanks to the quality of the commitment that has always animated the protagonists of this beautiful project that, as explained by its historical Director, Vittorio Zanon, aims to take root also in the reality of Gorizia, which has contributed so much to the enhancement of the cultural heritage of Friuli. Rossella Dosso, whose article "Lo Staatsgymnasium e la friulanità goriziana tra fine '800 e inizi '900" ("The Staatsgymnasium and Friulianity in Gorizia between the end of '800 and the beginning of '900") appears in the last issue of the magazine, has carried out a detailed analysis of this historical period - particularly flourishing for Gorizia from a literary and artistic point of view - which has seen a long list of intellectuals such as, among others, Carlo Michelstaedter, Biagio Marin, Ugo Pellis, Giovanni Lorenzoni, Antonio Morassi and Leo Planiscig. This, thanks to the role played by the School Institute which, in full Positivism, has been able to provide its students with a very wide cultural preparation and mindset, without neglecting modernity often philosophically transgressive to form minds free from prejudices for the future leadership class in Gorizia. This mindset, authentically transnational and Central European emphasized the centrality of man and his hidden Promethean tendencies. Rossella Dosso has provoked a debate on the need not to disperse this exciting cultural and historical heritage through her teaching in schools. This is a topic that we intend to take up and deepen. A large audience, which saw the authoritative presence of the Regional Director of ARLEF, the Director of the State Library Isontina and the Municipal Councillor for Culture, was the setting for the successful meeting.
