On February 3, 2022, President Sergio Mattarella’s term of office will end after an intense seven-year term marked by economic and political crises, pandemics and the alternation of five different governments. And now, Parliament will have to face the most important and difficult election, that is the election of the next Head of State.
Guarantor of the Constitution and President of all as he introduced himself from the first day of his assignment, Mattarella has always been a firm, constant and kind guide but, at the same time, ready and determined during the most crucial moments in the life of our country.
Without a doubt, his seven-year term will be remembered as one of the most complicated in the history of the Republic. In fact, among the many economic and political crises, the pandemic arrives, overwhelmingly and unexpectedly, shocking and shaking the already precarious balance of the nation.
During the hardest months of the pandemic, Mattarella has always been ready to encourage and reassure Italy and the Italians, guiding them towards recovery and stressing the importance of responsible behaviour, scientific research and the vaccine, considering the latter not only as ‘our most important defence’ but also as a ‘civic and moral duty’.
During his last speech as President of the Republic, in addition to thanking the Italians that have never made him feel alone, he addressed his successor reminding him to “safeguard the role, powers and prerogatives of the institution”.
