Racism against refugees has been a major problem in Italy even before the crisis of coronavirus: despite our common sense, as people we can be very nasty. My peace education work is based on philosophy and is disseminated through a newsletter/broadcast via whatsapp and public lectures. In the bad moments there is always someone who reminds me that my efforts are not useless.

I was always for personal freedom. The Italian participation in the war in Afghanistan and then in Iraq convinced me that I had to engage within my personal contributions from the field of education.

It’s hard to say what was the most striking moment in my peace education related work. I started with a lot of enthusiasm and continued in a peculiar way simply because I am deeply convinced about this cause. It is this conviction rather than my emotions that motivate me to continue.
