The 2018 was a very important year because it opened with the 70th anniversary of our Constitution and ended with the historic ratification (a term that I do not use randomly) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The very origin of these charters and declarations confirms that, after the tragedy of the Second World War, after the tragedy of the Holocaust, after two totalitarian regimes such as Fascism and Nazism responsible for genocide and, while many areas of the world were still living under dictatorial and repressive regimes, everywhere there was a need for change. In the middle of the terrible twentieth century, humankind as such began to feel in an increasingly urgent and widespread need for shared rules and values. To define a common core of values supported by institutions capable of guaranteeing a future of peace and development for the nations of the world. Those two charters allowed us to enter, through the main door, into the age of rights, to use the words of Norberto Bobbio. The most important right is the human right: the ability to live a decent life, free from fear. Global challenges bring back to us, in new forms, old problems that the legal system at our disposal is not always able to face. Regarding freedom, migrating should be a CHOICE not a NECESSITY, this is the theoretical framework around which the structure of journey is built.
