Collective Identities at Work. The recovered companies by workers: a case study for new forms of collective and supportive actions

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Collective Identity; The New Spirit of Capitalism; Projective City; Expiring Lives; Recovered Companies.

The article aims at shedding light on the main expiring tendencies of the so called "projective city" promoted by the new spirit of capitalism which are at the root of the overproduction of (either human and non-human) wastes; at the same time, the article will focus on some collective, recovering strategies able to reconvert, regenerate and share human and non-human resources which would otherwise be condemned to remain mere wastes by the imbalances due to the market's global competition. The core assumption of the article is that social phenomena like the recovered companies of workers would not be possible without some kind of collective identity able to breathe the sense of belonging to a shared community.
