TRENTO, June 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Time flies at the Festival of Economics 2022 in Trento. It is already the third day, the most eventful one, in an edition full of events and surprises. Saturday started with the remembrance, by the Festival community, of the recently deceased economist Jean Paul Fitoussi.

In the morning, Paolo Gentiloni, EU Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs, gave the keynote speech on the topic of European “pride” during the event “A changed world: challenges and opportunities for a leading Europe”.

Romano Prodi – who will take part in the Festival this evening with an appointment dedicated to “Geopolitics and geo-economics after the war in Ukraine” – was also present in the auditorium Santa Chiara, and there were also many young people to listen to Gentiloni, who answered questions from the director of Sole 24 Ore Fabio Tamburini and Paolo Magri, ISPI executive vice-president and then from students from Trento.

At the Social Theatre, Renato Brunetta, Minister of Public Administration, talked with Alberto Orioli, deputy editor of Il Sole 24 Ore. The underlying theme? The spectre of a recession.
