Liberal criticism has been the voice of progressive liberalism in Italy for more than forty years. Born in the '60s as the press agency of the internal left wing of the Italian Liberal Party, since 1974 Critical Liberalism has been the name a of a monthly liberal journal entirely independent of any Italian political party. In 1994 Liberal Criticism became a foundation that, together with the journal, is seeking to give voice and continuity to a political thought and tradition that has its roots in European liberalism, in the secularist and Enlightenment tradition, in the commitment to civil rights and to the integration of a federal and democratic Europe. Liberal Criticism is opposed to the populist quackery that predominates in Italy in recent years - from its intrinsic economic, political, civil and cultural corruption, to the extremist and obscurantist clericalism which has artificially been reintroduced into the country, with its innate anti-Europeanism. Liberal criticism is a small think tank in Italy, but they are aware of belonging to a major and well alive European political culture.
