31/01/2020 | 11:01:38 Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, The issue that is addressed in these reports is really crucial for democracy as we know it today because these spaces, these social networks are not just tools. They are not just new media. They are, for all intents and purposes, the new territories. They are a place where democracy is exercised and where, however, today we are exactly where we were before the birth of democracies, before the rule of law, before the Magna Carta. They are places owned by... 29/01/2020 | 17:29:38 I apologize, Mr President, but I was working with a colleague and I was out of place. No, I believe that the debate that we are trying to hold in these hours, in these minutes, is fundamental to the future of the Council of Europe. We've been over this several times already.

The reflection of the three days of work, beyond the final award ceremony, focused on many themes. But one struck me in particular: the construction of... 24/06/2019 | 17:30:17 Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, I believe that today we really must put all our intelligence to work because this is a delicate step. I have great respect for the emotions that are brought to this House. Indeed, I believe that we must never leave emotions outside the door. But we must try to really understand what our role is and what the meaning of this institution is. I don't think anyone can give lessons in democracy here, using words like "traitors" to those who think differently...
