Il problema al centro di questa miscellanea di studi è il rapporto fra centro e periferia, la percezione dello spazio nella letteratura russa, la sua interpretazione nei diversi contesti socioculturali. La comunità scientiﬁca si interroga da tempo su queste problematiche, proposte innanzitutto dalla “scuola di Bergamo”, dall’infaticabile Nina Kautschisvili e sviluppate dai suoi brillanti allievi. Il desiderio di non far cadere l’interesse su questi temi, fra i più interessanti e promettenti per lo sviluppo della letteratura russa contemporanea, ha spinto un nutrito gruppo di studiosi provenienti da Russia, Stati Uniti e Italia ad incontrarsi a Roma, alla Sapienza, nel maggio 2015, per riprendere a discutere sullo status quaestionis. Il volume fa parte della collana Itinerario nel meraviglioso. Studi di cultura russa, inaugurata nel 2012 con una miscellanea di studi dedicata al problema del linguaggio poetico La poesia russa da Puškin a Brodskij. E ora?

The same year 1775 the equestrian statue of the King Dom José I was inaugurated in Lisbon, the sculptor of the monument Joaquim Machado de Castro (1731-1822) published the festive ode in honor of the king and his statue. My paper aims to reconstruct some historical circumstances for that little-known ode, and propose three possible levels of its interpretation: as a Sovereign’s portrait, as representation of the monument, and as eulogy to the artist.

Several approaches to the concept of fatherhood present in Western sociological tradition are analyzed and compared: biological determinism, social constructivism and biosocial theory. The problematics of fatherhood and men’s parental practices is marginalized in modern Russian social research devoted to family and this fact makes the traditional inequality in family relations, when the father’s role is considered secondary compared to that of mother, even stronger. However, in Western critical men’s studies several stages can be outlined: the development of “sex roles” paradigm (biological determinism), the emergence of the hegemonic masculinity concept, inter-disciplinary stage (biosocial theory). According to the approach of biological determinism, the role of a father is that of the patriarch, he continues the family line and serves as a model for his ascendants. Social constructivism looks into man’s functions in the family from the point of view of masculine pressure and establishing hegemony over a woman and children. Biosocial theory aims to unite the biological determinacy of fatherhood with social, cultural and personal context. It is shown that these approaches are directly connected with the level of the society development, marriage and family perceptions, the level of egality of gender order.
