OUR SALUTE FOR DAVID, THE MAN WITH A PASSION FOR EUROPE
David was not only the President of the European Parliament for us and thus the pride of our country, but he was a member of the Scientific Committee of our Foundation and we want to remember him as such.
Several times that man so kind, polite and strong in principles that we shared in the path we lived together confronted the audience and the young people of the schools in the usual Foundation days at the end of December useful to tell the results of our projects around the world and we have vivid memories of the last message sent to us in the middle of the pandemic where he could not, unfortunately, be among us.
These are some of the passages we would like to highlight:
"To face the challenges of the present, we need lucidity, to think outside the box, to be courageous to positively affect the course of events."
"The sense of our interdependence of being bound to each other perhaps didn't have to have a virus to make us understand this."
"The rules of the market without the defense of human rights, the sense of freedom, democracy, would just be economic laws that would make the strongest prevail, and we cannot afford that."
"An economy without morality, development without justice, Growth at the expense of future generations is not acceptable."
We like to remember you this way David with Your smile and the strength of Your ideas that always smelled good....
