Le più grandi sciagure dell’umanità sono state originate da chi ha voluto semplificare la vita pianificando il mondo.

The week at the meeting in Rimini


This year the Meeting of Rimini did not disappoint. Hundreds of thousands of people in Rimini, August 19 to 25 were able to follow the hundreds of opportunities for meetings, presentations, exhibitions and cultural and sporting events that followed one another without a break during the day.
Certainly no one can follow all the meeting, many meetings and events are held at the same time, we must choose.
Personally I prefer to watch matches at the Meeting with the characters they are asked to deal with the issue of the moment. This year the title of the meeting was: "The nature of man is relationship with the infinite."

Monday, August 20th I attended all 'meeting with Shodo Habukawa, Abbot of Muryoko Temple (Buddhist temple on Mount Koya in Japan) and Don Stefano Alberto, professor of theology at the Catholic University of Milan who spoke Homo religiosus. The religious sense is what unites all people and expresses the consciousness of the original dependence on the Mystery that created them.

Tuesday, 21 have followed with particular attention to the relationship of Don Javier Prades Lopez, Rector of the University of San Damaso Madrid with the title theme of the Meeting. Report a clarity and at the same time such a theological depth that is really worth listen on YouTube (it is published on the channel of the Meeting of Rimini).

Wednesday was the turn of Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli, presented by astrophysical  Marco Bersanelli, who gave a very interesting report and told us about his experience of life on how to become an astronaut and six-month stay in space.

Thursday, August 23 moved all present the testimony of the Palestinian doctor Izzeldin Abuelaish who came to tell us his story began in a land difficult for a child, the Gaza Strip. Of this meeting I wrote in the previous post where I reviewed the book written by Abuelaish. Also on Thursday, I heard another meeting Wael Farouq, Vice President of the Cairo Meeting and lecturer at the Institute of Arabic Language at the American University of Cairo and Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard University to speak of desire and politics.

Friday, August 24 came for the first time at the Meeting of the UN General Assembly President, Nassir Abdulaziz Al Nasser, along with the Italian Foreign Minister, and S. Eminence Cardinal Jean Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue. The three entertained the audience on the theme: international political and religious freedom, particularly relevant in light of continuing attacks that almost every day there are still today in the world at the expense of Catholics in Africa and parts of Asia.

Finally, Saturday, Aug. 25 closing of the meeting "my" meeting was with Sergio Bertolucci, Director for Research and Computing at CERN in Geneva and Lucio Rossi, High Luminosity LHC Project Leader at CERN in Geneva who told us about the latest developments physics made ​​at CERN in Geneva and in particular, we have talked about the Higgs boson.

Perhaps some readers, remembering the week of the meeting as it was presented by national newspapers, after reading this post, he finds himself disoriented. Have not been mentioned Mario Monti and Corrado Passera, Corrado Cini and Antonio Tajani, Roberto Formigoni and Maurizio Lupi, Tiziano Treu and Enrico Letta, Raffaele Bonanni and Maria Elsa Fornero, all guests present at the Meeting this year and whose actions have received wide media coverage. Simply, as I said at the beginning, at the Meeting must choose. And my choice was that I told you.
