Informations and abstract


John Calvin has played a major role in the birth of Italian Protestantism in the sixteenth century. Even his Institues have been translated at that time into Italian by a Sicilian calvinist, Giulio Cesare Paschali. But that Protestantism has been completely destroyed by the Counter-Reformation (only the Waldensian Church could survive, segregated in some secluded valleys in Northern Italy). Since then the Italian religious culture has ignored Calvin until the thirties of twentieth century, when Giuseppe Gangale wrote an essay entitled Calvino, which has awoken a new interest in the thought and the undertaking of the Reformer of Geneva. Around Gangale and in his track a"reformed generation" started in Italy: this article is about its leading characters.
