Le stade, terrain de jeu de l’extrême droite italienne : soupape de sécurité ou fabrique du consensus ?

Abstract : In Italy, the stadium is a privileged place to observe the political strategies of radical groups and their interactions with local officials. The Northern League succeeded in inserting itself in sports by promoting personalities from the hardcore subculture of football supporters. The ethnographic study of the two most violent tifoserie, the Atalanta of Bergamo and the Hellas of Verona, allows us to understand the links between the production of an aggressive masculinity, political radicalism, and the exercise of power at the local scale. There are strong correlations between the ritual behaviors of football fans and the Northern League’s action modalities. Elected representatives from the extreme right-wing describe the stadium as a « safety valve » in which the most rebellious social groups can find an outlet for their violence, but the stadium seems to be a place where they promote tribalization of the masses in order to reinforce their consensus.
