Even now, in the harsh season of the pandemic, especially looking at the future end of the emergency: Culture is therefore a right of the person and a duty of the Republic. And today, as in the post-war period, it has a central role: it can and must be the driving force for a new “reconstruction”. An eloquent parallel, the one proposed by President Coraggio, between the rebuilding of an Italy tried by war and the urgent need to mend the social fabric in the highly anticipated post-Covid era. That is after the isolation and interpersonal distancing, the suspension of sociality, the loss of work, the thousand loneliness.
