Angelo Bolaffi was born in Rome in 1946 and he teaches political philosophy at La Sapienza University there. After coming to the Free University Berlin as a researcher in the middle of the 1970s thanks to a grant from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, he acted as head of the Italian Cultural Institute from 2007 to 2011 in Germany’s capital city. After many years of commuting between these two home cities, Bolaffi recently published his book »Deutsches Herz« (2014; tr. German Heart) in which he discusses Germany’s leading role in Europe.
