Our Constitution was born “to overcome, to expel hatred, as a measure of human relations”, began the Head of State, with an explicit reference to what is happening “on the borders of our Europe”. “There is never a shortage of pretexts, to fuel contrasts. Whether they are the invocation of ideological oppositions, of ethnic characteristics, of deceptive class struggles, or the claim to resurrect anachronistic nationalisms”, Mattarella said. and theinvasion of Ukraine “it is dramatic testimony to it”. Despite the difficulties “we don’t want to give up today hope of peace in Europa”.

The path is that of “respect for diversity”. The President of the Republic extends the concept of “just peace”, including in it a solution to the “refugee drama”. On migration policies “it is necessary to take different paths. If the sense of human fraternity is not felt, for better security”.
