Ashes and ruins of a failed revolution: the PCI in the early 1980’s. The beginning of the silence: Moro, PCI, and the equivocal essence of Red Brigades. The manifest of vissuto: Guido Rossa and the human experience of communism. The age of fractures: communists’ dilemmas in international and domestic space. The Soviet drive is over: the PCI discourse in the wake of polish crisis. Awakening from the illusion: the return to "operaismo" in a changing Italy. In the storm, without a compass: communists’ lives in mid-1980’s. The pursuit of modernity: communist openness to the contamination of 1980s novelties. The last duel: Berlinguer, Craxi and the defense of the underdogs. The death of the master: Berlinguer’s stroke and the days of a commune agony. In name of the father: the communist funeral and the farewell to Berlinguer. What is next? Natta’s PCI between the old legacy and an unavoidable destiny. Global communism on the move: the PCI and the rise of Gorbachev. A left palingenesis: Italian communism facing the 1989 conundrum. Ending history: the new communist pedagogy for a reforming party. The after morning: material and spiritual reactions to real socialism collapse. The long agony: the twilight of utopia. Addio compagni, the hammer and sickle rusts while an oak grows.
