Electra is an international periodical dedicated to all areas of culture, promoting dialogue between different artistic disciplines, humanistic knowledge and science, cultural theories and practices.

A law of excess rules the contemporary world in every domain. The products of consumer society, the financial logic, wealth and poverty, the phenomena of social and political life, the growth of cities, the circulation of people and goods, rubbish and waste: everything has abandoned its due measure and has been growing and proliferating unchecked. The notion of Excess, its manifestations and effects, is the theme of the central section of Electra 24, with essays by Gianluca Cuozzo, Christian Salmon, Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis, McKenzie Wark, Paul Morland and Laurent de Sutter.

In this edition, the renowned Italian literary critic Alfonso Berardinelli writes about Italo Calvino, the great writer who took narrative, the short story and short forms to a supreme level of literary construction, and Michael Hardt, one of the most distinguished political theorists of our time, speaks to Electra about love and revolution, language and liberation, activism and prison, and his new project on the urgent need to take another look at the revolutionary movements of the 1970s.
