The role played by RISSDA (as RISS was called up to 1933) in its first years of publication goes much beyond the sheer publication of interesting articles. The argument of this essay is that by inserting the Italian Social Catholic  intellectuals into the network of the European Catholic Social Movement, RISSDA allowed the elaboration and diffusion across Italy of ideas that were proving effective in contrasting conservative and socialist solutions to the  challenges of the time. But above all, it allowed the Italian social Catholics of the time to leave a legacy that was resumed after fascism and supported the DC positions in building up a new constitution and in devising the policies 
for reconstruction.
