Federico Dal Bo, Antonio Castore / ICI Berlin

The term we still use to designate someone's attachment to a particular language, her potentially flawless competence, or the very "place" for her thoughts to emerge in coherent form, is "mother tongue". We take it to be a natural condition of language acquisition, equally valid for every individual speaker, and thus forget that it is a mere metaphorical reference to the "first" language, spoken by what is referred to, with an even more misleading metaphor, a "native" speaker.

Throughout history, the use and connotations of the expression "mother tongue" have undergone several changes. In the Middle Ages and Early Modern period, the Latin "lingua materna" referred to the vernaculars in opposition to the learned Latin.

In Antonio Gramsci's reading, the move of the Turin communists was far from dividing the country but instead was based on creating alliances between the workers from the North and the peasants from the South as a strategy for revolution. In 2015, with austerity crippling southern Europe countries, what old and new "Southern Questions" are shaping the long history of inequality in the very idea of south?
