Abstract

This text takes advantage of the opportunity provided by the 150th anniversary of Book I of Das Kapital by Karl Marx and the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. By the way it recovers an article of youth from Antonio Gramsci – La Rivoluzione contro il Capitale (1918) –, allusive to both. From the announced this text confronts the Gramscian conception – that proposes the antagonism between Das Kapital and the Russian Revolution –, with the respective work, and other writings, of Marx. Moreover, it takes advantage of the present recovery as a possible route for the discussion of the so-called “stagism”.
