The role of parties in democracy today. Meeting with the protagonists of italian politics
In collaboration with Parliamentary Intergroup for Subsidiarity. With the contribution of Regione Emilia-Romagna
Giuseppe Conte, President of Movimento 5 Stelle; Enrico Letta, National Secretary of Partito Democratico; Maurizio Lupi, President of the Parliamentary Intergroup for Subsidiarity; Giorgia Meloni, National President of Fratelli d’Italia; Ettore Rosato, National President of Italia Viva; Matteo Salvini, Federal Secretary of Lega; Antonio Tajani, Vice-president of Forza Italia. Introduced by Giorgio Vittadini, President of the Fondazione per la Sussidiarietà.
Also this year the Meeting will host a discussion between the secretaries of the main Italian political parties. This session takes on particular significance at a time when politics is called to a decisive test: relaunching the country after the pandemic. What has happened not only in recent years, but throughout the Second Republic, highlights the need for a radical redesign of the political culture, likely to get over the logic of sterile opposition, disintermediation strategies and the subjugation to communication dynamics. What does it mean, today, to put the pluralism of democracy at the service of the common good? What changes are the parties responsible for? How can we rebuild a constructive relationship between parties, institutions, civil society and intermediate bodies? In other words, what contribution can the culture of subsidiarity make to the country as a whole?
