Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Everything Calamandrei did was a knock out. An extraordinary sense of humour in the face of tyranny. If the States had the plain-talking Federalist Papers, Italy has the works of the Roselli brothers, the Calamandrei's, Ernesto Rossi, Gaetano Salvemini, etc, etc.

Even his non-juridical writings on Benvenuto Cellini are fascinating.
