It is right that opportunities are given to young people, but it is also true that Plebani himself would be the best teacher for these young people, because he has and will still have many things to say and teach. In this regard – concludes the President of the Region – it is nice to know that, pending a revision of the pension mechanisms, Plebani continues to work voluntarily and free of charge, not depriving us of his knowledge, his science and his skills ”.
