German-Italian Marxist political scientist, though he rejected the label Marxist, preferring instead - somewhat ironically - to call himself an Agnolist.

In 1957, Agnoli joined the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD); he would be expelled in 1961, for being a member of the Socialist German Student Union, the former college organization of the SPD, which then rebelled against the party.

In 1967, "Die Transformation der Demokratie" (The Transformation of Democracy), the book most commonly associated with Agnoli, was published.

He died in San Quirico di Moriano near Lucca, Tuscany on 4 May 2003.
