This article deals with Claudio Cesa's historical hermeneutic by using his most influential studies as well as many minor writings (often neglected and now available in some collecting books). Cesa (1928-2014) was the main Italian scholar of the German idealist political philosophy (Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel). This paper analyses Cesa's historical approach and it is primarily focused on his philological competence, his methodology, his ability in connecting political judgement and philosophy of history, and, last but not least, his contribution to a manifold interpretation of Hegel's political writings.
