  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


Following a brief discussion of the key figure of Ernesto Buonaiuti (1881-1946) within early twentieth-century «modernism», this article deals with the network of Buonaiuti's friends and students who played a crucial role in putting together a spiritual community, called koinonia. Through a close examination of an unpublished collection of letters between Agostino Biamonti (1897-1924), Raffaello Niccoli (1897-1977) and Mario Niccoli (1904-1964), the author is able to trace aims, projects and books circulating among the members of this spiritual community, and to prove how a variety of cultural and religious identities could combine within the koinonia.
