Changing Campanilismo.

Abstract

Campanilismo is a well-known phenomenon in Italy. An important aspect of this parochialism in a Tuscan mountain village is the idea of being more "civilized" compared with the other surrounding villages, as can be seen in the offensive role of collective nicknames. Campanilismo is a boundary mechanism that is connected with the closeness and commitment between villages. It is not a simple mechanism that makes a distinction between insiders and outsiders but it differentiates them both. Because this closeness and commitment have largely disappeared today, it is logically that a part of its vocabulary, like the collective and personal nicknames, will fade away too.
