Vincoli familiari fra tradizione e nuove prospettive

Di Francesca Cristiani -
The essay aims to give a picture of the actual meaning of kinship, given the changes occurred in the relation between kinship and family, as well as the new configuration of family system, with the affirmation, and often prevalence, of a new set of values, sometimes not fully corresponding to values which kinship represents. The Author suggests to revitalize traditional bond of kinship, under the sign of solidarity, which is indispensable and common to every models of family. It is important also to enhance ordering value of kinship, and its certainty and stability, which gives it a resilience that cannot be found in other relationships, which are more and more “volatile” and at the risk of dissolution.
