Focus and scope

'Ricerche slavistiche' is the oldest active Italian journal of Slavistics. It was established in 1952 by the founder of Slavic philology in Italy, Giovanni Maver, and has been for a long time characterised by the centrality given to the philological study of texts, which corresponds to the formation of this discipline and its articulation throughout the 20th century. It now proposes itself as a place for in-depth study and scientific debate in a different historical and cultural context, where the roots and traditions of Slavic languages and cultures in Europe can be studied in their reciprocal relations and intersections with non-Slavic cultural traditions - with the cultures of the Germanic area, the Baltic area, the Romance area and the Balkan area in its non-Slavic expressions - up to investigating their contemporary outcomes.
