The title of the meeting is also metaphysically this year as they like it: "The forces that move history are the same that make people happy". Thirty-nine years later, Communion and Liberation returns to the Rimini Fair, but it is no longer the same. What the political shootings should have been this year is broadcast in a less important tone. «Perhaps because politics has never stopped and the government remains in a permanent election campaign», bitter behind the scenes at the top of the movement founded by Don Giussani.
The parterre of the fair that goes to Saturday the rankings will be lowered . In the coming days the government will see the Minister of Foreign Affairs Enzo Moavero Milanesi, the Education of Marco Bussetti, the sub-secretaries in the quotas Lega Giancarlo Giorgetti and Claudio Durigon but not an exponent of the 5-star movement. Mattia Fantinati, now under-secretary of the public administration, is still burning during the meeting: "Cl is a lobby for money and power".
Three years have passed and perhaps even is no longer true. The Celeste Roberto Formigoni is struggling today with a thousand legal problems, the man who has embodied the power of the movement is not with the guests, is not expected and someone says that it is good. In the Lombardy region, the fief of communion and liberation, only the alderman for the environment, Raffaele Cattaneo, remained. Almost to indicate that the mood between politics and this movement is not at the top. The absence of the 5 Stars weighs but try to get a reason for this. Giorgio Vittadini, one of the spirits of communion and liberation, repeats it for all televisions: «The 5 stars of us do not come only because they know us by prejudices. But we can not force them ». Then the invitation to look ahead: "Work and development are the issues that the government and society must move about, otherwise you will not go anywhere".
At the meeting comes the greeting of President Sergio Mattarella: «Dialogue, the wish to meet and build the other together, forms the humus of a democratic society». Then that of Pope Francis: "The Christian can not give up the dream that the world is best". Other spirits, however, shook the church. To open the meeting, there is a long lectio magistralis by monseigneur Christophe Pierre, apostolic nuncio to the United States, who is inevitably asked about the situation of pedophile priests in the church. The answer is only a wish: "I see a serious concern from the bishops and also from the pope, we must help this church and the holy father to overcome this crisis and this scandal."
Innovation, integration, astrophysics, the fiftieth of the criticized Sixty-eight are the main themes of the meeting. To Luciano Violante the reins of a daily debate about what it means to be Italian: "We have to see if the Italians first" only "mean the Italians The basis of identity must be multiplicity So many cultures, so many ways to be» The Pope writes about the same subject in his greeting: "We return to the erection of walls instead of building bridges. Fear prevails over the confidence of the future. "The wall is also taught by Archbishop Christoph Pierre:" Today's walls are fashionable, but they do not free us from loneliness. The alternative is dialogue only ». Someone already sees a message to the government. It will be a matter of debate for the thousands of people who are expected, but today they do not fill the auditorium where at the beginning there is a perfunctory minute of silence for the dead of Genoa.
