I bambini sono sempre gli ultimi

Come le istituzioni si stanno dimenticando del nostro futuro

di Daniele Novara

Bur Saggi, 2020

For at least twenty years parents and education professionals have witnessed the progressive abandonment of childhood by the institutions, but never before has the reality been there for all to see during the recent emergency linked to Covid-19. The moment to really ask ourselves about the situation of children in our country, therefore, can no longer be postponed, and it is necessary to start with the fundamental questions: when did we stop taking care of childhood? Who were the main agents of this disaster and, above all, is there a way to put the little ones back at the center of institutional concerns? These questions are answered by Daniele Novara, an Italian reference expert on pedagogy and education issues, and who was the first to sound the alarm about the school during the pandemic.




Un'altra storia inizia qui

La giustizia come ricomposizione

di Marta Cartabia e Adolfo Ceretti

Bompiani, 2020

Marta Cartabia and Adolfo Ceretti confront the magisterium of Cardinal Martini explaining the value it continues to hold and the still living need for what the archbishop hoped for.

He hoped for a justice that would restore relationships rather than sever them, promote the values ​​of civil coexistence, carry within itself the sign of what is other than the evil committed.

From the visits to prison that card. Carlo Maria Martini made the reflection contained in these pages throughout his episcopal mandate in Milan: how and why to ensure that the punishment is justice but also recomposition?



La crepa e la luce

Sulla strada del perdono. La mia storia

di Gemma Calabresi Milite

Mondadori, 2022

It is a book that shows us how hatred and the desire for revenge can be transformed into trust in others and into love.

Gemma Capra, widow of Commissioner Calabresi, tells of her path of pacification and forgiveness that began fifty years ago, on May 17, 1972, when she was only 25 years old and was widowed with two small children and waiting for the third.

A winding road that led her, not without effort, to raise her children away from any temptation of resentment and anger and to embrace, over time and with ever more determination, the idea of ​​forgiveness.

She explains it herself: «I'm 75 years old, I don't know how long my journey here will last. I write this book to leave a testimony of faith and trust. To tell the most significant experience that has happened to me in her life, the one that gave her a true and profound meaning: to forgive ".

The story, starting from the life of a young couple who is shocked by the Piazza Fontana massacre, spans half a century, mending intimate and private moments with the public events of Italian society.
