Francesco Alberoni is a tenacious and brilliant man who, in the course of a long and intense existence, managed to create the theory of movements and love processes that made him known all over the world.
In his life he alternated lacerating dilemmas with immense joys and gratifications, strong passions to moments of lucid ability to see the future ’beyond the horizon’. His private life is closely woven to the evolution of his thought and the myriad of professional activities he carried out in the cultural and academic world. The biography tells of the man in his complexity, his extraordinary abilities and his weaknesses, successes and failures, acknowledgments received and attacks suffered. Through Alberoni’s biography we reconstruct a century that saw great changes in social, cultural and political context. In this background Alberoni has often been a forerunner, a lucid interpreter and an active protagonist.
