The Trentino-Alto Adige region is its own unique world as well, because of the German-speaking majority in Alto Adige/Südtirol/South Tyrol and the strength of the autonomist centre-left, a regional election was held on October 27. The election in Alto Adige/Südtirol was interesting in its own right but of little relevance to Italy: the Südtiroler Volkspartei (SVP), the catch-all German party which has dominated the province since 1948, finally lost its 65-year old absolute majority on the provincial council, winning an all-time low of 45.7% of the vote. The main winners were the German right, in the form of Die Freiheitlichen (often described as a local variant of the FPÖ and separatist) who won 17.9% but also the Süd-Tiroler Freiheit (separatists demanding reunification with Austria) which increased its support from 5% to 7%. The Greens, one of the few (only?) pan-linguistic parties in the province, increased their support to 8.7%. The PD won 6.7%, roughly holding its ground, but the Italian right lost heavily – an alliance between Lega Nord and Forza Italia (competing as Forza Alto Adige) won only 2.5% and 1 seat, down from 10.4% in 2008. The M5S eked out one seat. In the Trentino province, the centre-left coalition led by Ugo Rossi from the Trentino Tyrolean Autonomist Party (PATT) won handily, taking 58.1% of the direct presidential vote against 19.3% for Diego Mosna, an independent businessman backed by centrists, liberals, centre-right and centre-left dissidents. Running separately, it was a massive disaster for Forza Italia/Forza Trentino, which won 4.3% in the presidential vote and 4.4% in the list vote, losing all 5 seats won by the PdL in 2008. They were surpassed by the Lega Nord, which won 6.6%, but also the M5S – whose 5.7% were still a far cry from the 21% it had won in February.
The problem with saying bullying caused a suicide is that it oversimplifies,” she told me. “It implies that one person’s death by suicide can be attributed to one event or factor, which is just not true.” She sees these “bullycide” narratives as part of a longstanding misguided pattern. “We’ve singled out different scapegoats for suicide for decades,” she said. “We blamed the mean teacher. Or the bad parents. Or Dungeons and Dragons, or working mothers, or divorce. Now it’s bullies, and especially mean kids on the Internet. The thing is, there can be some truth to these explanations. When someone is vulnerable, and then they experience what we call a stressor event, and they are humiliated, that can be terrible for them. But it’s crucial to remember that what we’re also seeing as these narratives take shape is our underlying need to try to understand an event that family members and friends find so inexplicable.
bella, triste ma bella
Da un certo punto di vista il romanzo di oggi pare infatti affascinato, più che dai temi scientifici in senso stretto, dai loro risvolti e dalle loro implicazioni etiche e sociali, dai grandi dibattiti che pervadono la discussione pubblica – clonazione, genetica, mutamenti del clima. D’altra parte, uno sguardo più cinico potrebbe considerare la scienza come una sorta di «bene rifugio» per lo scrittore contemporaneo: fonte di contenuti solidi e originali, capaci di ravvivare intrecci altrimenti ormai usurati.
