Italy gets up. Just look around. From restaurants to shops. From traffic to vacation spots. Prime Minister Mario Draghi spoke of a phase of “enthusiasm” for the country and the governor of the Bank of Italy, Ignazio Visco, has forecast a rebound in gross domestic product of over 4 percent in 2021. The system- Country is starting up again. To understand if he will take the right path, it will not be enough to keep an eye on the GDP. Just as it will not be enough to secure the huge European resources of the Next Generation EU. To return to investing, building, creating jobs, it will be necessary to regain an even more precious asset: trust. Not the one that naturally marks the end of a nightmare. But the one that strengthens relationships between people, brings out the isolation, generates places in which to support each other, help each other, confront each other.

From here we must start again, from the “subsidiary vitality” of the country. The same one that made a decisive contribution to the system’s stability during the pandemic, as the study ‘A partnership of people?’, Edited by the Astrid Foundation and the Foundation for Subsidiarity, notes. The vitality, for example, of the non-profit world, which involves 10.5 million Italians, consists of 375,000 associations, foundations and social cooperatives, which have also increased in the last year. The wounds caused by Covid in the social fabric are profound. And they add up to atavistic problems. 814,000 jobs have been lost since 2020. The crisis has exacerbated inequalities, including those in access to care and education, as documented by the Report on Fair and Sustainable Wellbeing (Bes). Yet, the same report notes the increase in individuals who, although worried about their future, are very satisfied with their lives. It is not surprising that these are mainly people who live social relationships and feel that they belong to communities. From here we have to start again.
