Maurizio Acerbo, in your early communications as secretary of the PRC, you have quoted the remarks made by a warmly applauded speaker, the constitutionalist Gaetano Azzariti. Why?
Professor Azzariti said two things: that, even though he is not a member, he has worked with us on several occasions; and that we need to transform the social “no” issued by the country into a political “yes,” to move from the referendum on common assets to the Constitutional referendum. In every city, thousands of people got active and have found themselves in a common way of an alternative to neoliberalism, and therefore also to the Democratic Party. So, I do not see why all these people cannot share a popular movement with the left parties and the movements in defense of the environment, human rights and protection of employment, and democracy. Even with those who say they are not leftist because they feel nauseated by the abuse of the term in recent years. On Saturday, I will be in Barcelona for the constituent assembly of a single entity with the proposals we push forward in Italy.
You talked highly of Luigi De Magistris.
