The Committee for the National Edition of Aldo Moro’s Works has been established by the Italian Ministry for the Cultural Endowment, Cultural Activities and Tourism, with a Ministerial Decree dated November 15, 2016 and was installed on December 6, 2016.
As its first goal the Committee has to provide a critical, philologically sure and annotated edition of Moro’s published and unpublished texts, with historical introductions to them. Moreover the National Edition of Aldo Moro’s Works will have three other major features:
- it will be implemented in digital (on a platform provided by Il Mulino Editions) in order to make the outcome, not only universally accessible, but also searchable with complex procedures (Bruno Kessler Foundation);
- it will be the first National Edition to propose written texts (for what concerns Moro’s speeches and interviews) and audio and/or visual documents in an integrated way, by inserting links to the audio-visual sources related to the same event or occasion;
- it will devote a special attention to the internationalization of the results, foreseeing key words also in English and a guide to orient the International public, also listing which ones among Moro’s works are available in foreign languages.
The work will be articulated in three sections:
Section I – Writings and speeches, articulated in four volumes, devoted to the religious, journalistic and political writings of Moro, according to an essentially biographical sequence;
Section II – Juridical works, articulated in four volumes and devoted to the juridical works, that is those of an Academic character that Moro published as a lecturer and then as docent-at-large and finally as full professor of Criminal Law, and as professor of the courses of Philosophy of Law , according to a chronological articulation;
Section III – Correspondence, still to be structured and devoted to the epistolary, both personal and political.
