L’Umanità di Achille Ardigò - I met Achille Ardigò at the establishment by the Minister Foschi (Minister of Labor and Social Security) of the National Commission on the issues of family, when I was still a young researcher of IRLES (Ligure Insitut for Economic and Social research). I was appointed in the National Commission Institute on Family in the group that had to analyze the evolutionary trends in the 80’s of public social policies. Working with Prof. Sgritta of the Sapienza University in Rome, with Prof. Alba Dini of the Pontifical Gregorian University and Livio Labor chairman of the ACLI, I had to study the theories of Ardigò and Donati. Hence the encounter with Ardigò was decisive. From the methodological point of view: he taught me the need to combine several disciplines, to find a common point of view, with no hegemonic pretension.
