Andrea Crisanti to the giffoners of the Impact! section: “At Giffoni there is always an incredible energy. It’s the energy of life that regains itself”

Utmost attention. In the Sala Blu of the Multimedia Valley, from the gifforners, for the meeting with Andrea Crisanti. The same attention that, on the opinion of the director of the department of molecular medicine of the University of Padova, should be paid from the global political class, towards the “280,000 children who every year die of malaria in the poorest countries of the world. Especially in Africa. These children are invisibles to our conscience and knowledge”. The virologist, academic and science popularizer, talked about it at the beginning of his speech in front of the Impact! section of the Festival. Two-hundred are the young people, in the read sweater, between 18 and 30 years old, coming from all over Italy and abroad, who have listened carefully to his words. Full of wisdom and humanity. In addition to this, an invitation to politics: “It’s necessary to invest significant resources in a stable manner. We cannot look the other way. We all have the duty of sensibility and effort”. From the topic of the invisibles, in terms of health, to the visibility of the role of the Giffoni Festival in support of the youngest generations. A visibility that is palpable by the heart: “The enthusiasm that reigns in this place is unique and more necessary than ever after two years of Covid-19 pandemic, which have paralyzed us inside and outside” Crisanti affirmed. “I’m happy, moved and honoured to be here for a second year in a row. At Giffoni, there is always an incredible energy. It’s the energy of life that regains itself”.
