Strumenti critici is one of the journals that has played a key role in redefining the scene of Italian literary criticism, in terms of both methodological thinking and critical research. By maintaining its «militant» nature through greater openness, Strumenti critici keeps its proponent capacity intact, especially in the field of literary theory and textual criticism. It includes scholarly articles and authoritative studies relevant to contemporary and comparative literature, while at the same time combining philological and textual rigour with wide-ranging critical perspectives.
