A talk about Igino Giordani, a pioneer of European unity and a politician who stuck to the values of good governance, will be held inRomeon the 34th anniversary of his death and on the eve of the European Parliament elections. The biography of Giordani, a twenty-year work carried out by Tommaso Sorgi, will be presented to the public on this occasion.

Igino Giordani (1894-1980) was a man who possessed profound freedom, even from the constraints of power. His life can still be taken as a witness to a political culture that values coherence, dialogue and peace.
