This thesis explores the political ideas of the Italian liberal intellectual Mario Vinciguerra who died in 1972 after spending most of his life commenting on Italian politics and culture. It is the first attempt to write an intellectual biography of Vinciguerra that is based on archive sources and on a meticulous search of the hundreds of articles that he wrote for numerous political and cultural journals. The aim of this research is to offer an analysis of the formation and development of Vinciguerra's liberalism, which was centred on a moral, more than a political, understanding of freedom. This derived from his views on the relationship between culture and politics, which remains a fundamental aspect of the history of the Italian nation.
