Antonio Banfi

Antonio Banfi (Vimercate, 30 September 1886 – Milano, 22 July 1957) was an Italian philosopher and senator.

Although influenced by the Marburg Neo-Kantians and Edmund Husserl, whom he knew personally, Banfi moved away from Idealism and instead focused on Marxism, in particular, historical materialism.

Banfi joined the Italian Communist Party in 1947. He was elected to the Italian senate in 1948 and again in 1953.
