Guerra o Pace: riflessioni di un antropologo su un eterno dilemma, in Atti del Convegno Interreligioso held in Massa on the 26th May 1996 by the Centro Francescano Internazionale di Studi per il Dialogo fra i Popoli, in press

(War or Peace is an eternal dilemma that troubled humanity since the so-called "War-of-Fire", or even before... As a professional anthropologist, the A. in his paper offers a twofold contribution. The first, the more dramatic-one, it is only a short summing-up of a "sample" of the several wars and guerrilla-wars that actually and bloodily affect our World. War is almost a constant presence throughout the space, the times, the peoples. Very few Peoples inhabiting Third World countries do not know it. The hunting-gathering bands, for istance, living inside the vastity of their forests. An other one is represented ( with the exception of an aggressive war fought against the Greenland Vikings, or the difensive-ones against the Indian Tribes south of their barren tundra, in Arctic Canada), by the Eskimo People, the Inuit: from the Bering Strait (Russia and Alaska), to Canada and Greenland. But, if war it is not known, it is possible to add, moreover, that violence, aggression, homicides are a steady presence, not only almost everywhere: here in Italy, in Europe and elsewhere, but also among the "People of the Long Shadows". And war is often a by-product of racism and of worldwide ethnic, cultural and religious bias. Its origins come often from the numberless ethnicities that do not tolerate the existence of the other-ones. The second and more hopeful phase of the paper is an example brought back from a very far away land, up in the North, near the Pole: the Norwegian Arctic Svalbard Islands. There Russians and Norwegians have lived together since the beginning of the century. Working hard to pull out coal from those iced lands and in peace. Yes...they have lived together for almost eighty years, and they are still going on. And for long time their respective multinational Military Treaties kept "world order" through the balance of nuclear terror. It is a unique symbol of peaceful coexistence between West and East, before the Berlin Wall fell down. And this unknown pattern coming from the cold make us hope, and believe that things, if people want so really, could change, could improve, to better the world and us. As a matter of fact it is necessary a Great Change, a World Cultural Revolution, to abolish old and new violent ethnic boundaries, through knowledge and respect. To let the people know that all the "other" human beings are just like him. Not necessary for the in-group to "fight" metaphorically or really against "out-groups". And the Cultural Change ought to come from a personal and serious change in the concrete. Through the involvement of each man and woman, of each community and society, in the day-by-day facts and behaviours)

(A recent research of an American scholar on the Topnaar, a Hottentot group in extinction living in Namibia, is pictured by the A. in a wider ecological and ethno-anthropological context regarding the Hottentot people in its whole. The A. also deals with the problem of the origins, the somatic, cultural anf linguistic affinities with some peoples localized in areas far away from South West Africa. The A. then briefly analyzes the contribution given by Hottentot-Bushman groups to the settling of the Mapungubwe civilization)
