It is no accident that il Mulino is the first publication mentioned in this catalogue. The journal was founded in 1951 and it represents the beginning of everything that has been created next, starting from the Società editrice. Neither its subtitle is accidental: culture and politics review. Today, as in 1951, at the base of Il Mulino's work there is the belief that every key issue should be analysed from a perspective covering, at the same time, both cultural and political topics through a methodology that considers the power of politics to influence cultural changes as well as the most typical aspects of political-cultural analysis. As in the past, in 2012 il Mulino will follow the same methodology, carrying on the traditional analyses and proposing hypotheses of change and renewal. Though the year 2011 is going to end under the sign of the economic crisis, and for Italy also under the inauspicious conditions of a confusing and troubled political climate, it is necessary to consider the year 2012 as the year in which Italy will have to start again and in which the European project will have to be renegotiated, twenty years after Maastricht and ten years after the introduction of the single currency. Therefore, Italy and Europe will be at the centre of the next six issues. As always, a "window on the world" will complete every issue focusing on the analysis of different countries as well as on the globalized net of society, politics and economics.
