Suddenly the voice cracks and the study of Che Tempo che Fa supports Vincenzo Spadafora with applause. A passage from his book, ‘Unreserved’, concerns, explains Fabio Fazio, the homosexuality of the exponent M5s. “I think that people’s private lives should remain that way – the former minister then resumes – and if we were a more culturally advanced country, especially on the issue of rights, perhaps we would not even have addressed the debates of these weeks. But I also think that those who have a public, political role like mine, in this historical moment, have something more responsibility ”. “I did it, I must say, also for myself, because I learned, perhaps very late, that it is very important to love each other and above all to respect each other”, he continues.
“Then there are two reasons …”, and here the emotion takes over for a moment, it is not hidden from the cameras but quickly dominated. “I care – continues Spadafora – a motivation is very political, this is also a way for me to testify my political commitment. For all those who every day – he claims – fight for their rights and have less chance of doing so than I have thanks to my work ”.
Spadafora also wants to mark his Catholic faith as a factor “not in contradiction” and closes with a personal notation: “This theme in politics is unfortunately still used to hurt the opponent, for that background buzz that is sometimes very squalid and that I have me too. Tonight I wanted to turn off this buzz – he underlines – knowing that I remain the man I am, with all the path, even complicated, personal, that each of us makes in his life, for whatever reason. And of which we must have a lot of respect ”.
“I hope to be considered from tomorrow for what I do, for how I do it, the same man as always. Maybe from tomorrow – it’s the farewell, with a smile now more relaxed, from the Rai3 studio – I’ll be just a little bit happier. Because I will be even more free ”.
