Culture is a problem that, over the last 200 years, has increasingly moved to the center of reflection, which is obviously a cultural moment, too. In fact, if on the one hand it is through culture that one educates and forms minds and consciences, it is undeniable that it always involves a bit of barbarism. It has been argued that it is necessary to survive the culture, that we need to push barbarism to the end so that a new culture can be born or, more simply, that, after Auschwitz, it was no longer possible. Especially literature and music have addressed this dialectic, especially in the 20th century. Especially in present times, in the face of encounter and the clash of different cultures, these issues acquire an ever greater weight.
