This article analyses Italian Catholic and anti-fascist political theorist Luigi Sturzo’s (1871-1959) notion of liberty and competitive inclusion within the tradition of political culture called popularism, one of the roots of European integration experiment started after the Second World War. Sturzian popularism, close to German Ordoliberal theory, questions the notion of people considered as a single undifferentiated mass in order to consider them in their plurality as induvials. Such pluralism safeguards the “virtuous circle of inclusive institutions”, using social scientists Daron Acemoglu’s and James A. Robinson’s terminology, and presupposes the value of individual consciences as the basis for competitive inclusive institutions.
