The words with which President Mattarella recalled Marco Biagi – “Terrorism was defeated by the unity of the Italian people and by the awareness that freedom and the principles enshrined in the Constitution remain the indispensable framework for all civil and social progress”. This was stated by the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, in a message on the occasion of the nineteenth anniversary of the murder of Marco Biagi.

Fanaticism and hatred – explains the Head of State – always lead to barbarism and decline: this is a lesson that comes from the most difficult moments in our history and that must never be forgotten “.

“The ambush and death by the murderous hand of Marco Biagi – underlines President Mattarella – have left a profound mark in the memory of our national community that cannot be erased. On the anniversary day, the first thought of intense solidarity is addressed to Ms. Marina Orlandi Biagi and her family, forced to endure the most excruciating pain over the years, and yet able, together with friends and colleagues of Professor Biagi, to continue the research he started and to develop reflections and studies making it ever wider and deeper confrontation on the issues of labor law and industrial relations. This is precisely what the terrorists wanted to strike: the study of economic and social transformations, the free discussion oriented to the best political and legislative choices, the incessant search for balance points between the many interests in order to guarantee development and social cohesion “.

In the ideological delirium of the Red Brigades gang – adds the head of state – those threads that connected the institutions to society had to be broken, political decisions to the necessary foundation of competences, of intellectual confrontation, of connection with the aspirations of the social partners. Like Biagi, Ezio Tarantelli, Roberto Ruffilli, Massimo D’Antona were brutally killed, whom we cannot but remember together, because they shared the passion in their studies and the generosity of commitment despite the differences that make democracy alive “.
