“In these days of sadness and emotion, the figure of President Sassoli was rightly and dutifully remembered for the extraordinary humanity and the priceless contribution he offered to the construction of Europe. On Monday, with President Draghi and Undersecretary Amendola, I was in Strasbourg where ‘his’ Parliament honored his memory. President Sassoli, David, was a great Italian, a convinced European, a profound pro-European “. This was declared by the Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, at the ceremony for the naming of the European Treaty Room at the Farnesina after David Sassoli. According to Di Maio, Sassoli “was able to embody a lofty idea of Europe: proactive, authoritative, founded on the values of freedom, dignity, solidarity and attentive to the needs and expectations of citizens. This is why he wanted the European Parliament to house of 500 million people, continued to function even during the pandemic “. The naming of the Sala dei Treaty is “a symbolic gesture, but for me, for all of us, full of meaning. Not only to honor the memory of President Sassoli, but also to carry forward his values and the ideal of Europe”, Di Maio continued, underlining that what we can do to honor his memory is “to continue to pursue that ideal of a better Europe that has animated his action so much”. “David Sassoli was a visionary, an innovator who he did not stop at what was written in the Treaties. Throughout his political life he has always innovated starting from the Treaties to go further “, said the secretary of the Democratic Party, Enrico Letta, speaking at the ceremony. “Seeing today this room, which is the temple of the European Treaties, named after David, I truly believe that it is the best gift we can give to the Italian idea of Europe itself”, he added. “In the long life of each of us, momentary belonging they leave the time they find, there are values that go far beyond the political flag we have and David defended the centrality of the person: all his initiatives were aimed at respecting the person “, concluded the coordinator of Forza Italia, Antonio Tajani.
