La lingua del diritto e i mutamenti sociali e culturali. Un’analisi sul termine ‘cittadinanza’

This paper investigates the changing and varied meanings of the term ‘citizenship’ over time based on an analysis of resources culled from a legal database containing both historical and contemporary juridical documents. We have analysed the semantic evolution of the concept of citizenship using legal language as the central point of reference. By nature sector-specific, over the centuries the legal language has nevertheless relied on the common language with which it shares the social changes and cultural influences that have taken place throughout Italy.
