abstract = "Antonio Tabucchi is one of the present-day Italian writers to who most frequently is assigned the label of postmodern; despite he has often expressed his scepticism about such a classification. But Tabucchi has equally expressed his scepticism about the traditional notion of impegno (social-political commitment) in literature. However this has not prevented him from taking position in his writing on important civil and social-political issues in Italy and Europe. This paper focuses on Tabucchi{\textquoteright}s stance about the question of impegno, - particularly as discussed by him in La gastrite di Platone and L{\textquoteright}oca al passo – and proposes to locate Tabucchi{\textquoteright}s work within the category of ”postmodern impegno” , a category proposed by scholars as P. Antonello, F. Mussgnug and others. Tabucchi does not propose an antagonistic reading of reality, but places himself inside the ambiguity of the postmodern condition and from whence he puts forward his emancipatory discourse. Tabucchi{\textquoteright}s impegno is open-ended and fragmented, ethical and post-ideological. His aim is to turn literature into an open debate between writer, characters and readers, a debate that does not want to provide answers but rather to disturb consciences. ",
