Their timely, fast, effective implementation needs the contribution of all the energies of the country “. The head of state then underlined the need to have “awareness of the debt that one has towards future generations. The debt is not only the financial one that arises from the public debt of our country: it is a debt that is expressed in the recognition of the role of young people, in designing a future with punctuality, in an adequate manner. This is the opportunity, with the programs that are being defined and then implemented, to adequately design the future of our country to be delivered to young people, avoiding from the temptation, from the tendency that is often felt, to be locked up or even imprisoned in the exclusive and therefore ephemeral consideration of the present moment, which ignores the past of history and neglects the future “.” It is a reminder that this circumstance allows us to make with determination, here in this university place destined for young people and therefore for the future: the need – Mattarella reiterated in conclusion – to think in our country to young people, to give them, beyond the contingencies of the moment, an adequate future that guarantees the future of Italy “.
