    Abstract

    Since the political upheavals of the early 1990s, Italian writers have continually confronted issues of political identity, particularly in view of the fascistic tendencies that are increasingly polluting society. It is in this context that Tullio Avoledo, a writer from Friuli, continues the strong Italian tradition of impegno, or ‘commitment’. This essay examines his third novel, Lo stato dell’unione (Turin, Einaudi, 2005), addressing specifically the two closely-linked, destabilizing – for the individual – elements of corruption and conspiracy in the business world.
