The Governor of Veneto hosted by Viticoltori Ponte for the presentation of his new book.

Ponte di Piave, Tuesday 20 December. In the Sala Botti of Viticoltori Ponte, company with over 20 million bottles a year sold all over the world, took place the presentation of the new book by Luca Zaia “I pessimisti non fanno fortuna”. In the presence of over five hundred people, the President of the Veneto Region, in dialogue with the journalist Domenico Basso and with the participation of Canal – the canal, a very well-known influencer with hundreds of thousands of followers, recalled his memories as a child, young man, man, in search of the country we have been but above all in view of the country we want to become.
«Whether we like it or not, the events of recent years have imposed a scenario destined to become a watershed between two eras. We can choose to suffer it, delude ourselves of opposing it or decide to govern it».

With the sincerity and passion that made him one of the most popular and closest to citizens, in the book Zaia talks about recovering the momentum of a country through the past in which «the strength to look to the future with optimism has never been lacking, even in the worst moments. That gear has never broken which, from generation to generation, has transmitted us the desire to respond to any change, even the most unexpected, by committing ourselves to building something new». To evaluate together the premises and consequences of the choices we have before us, he retraces some symbolic thresholds which in collective and individual history have marked as many decisive turning points for the growth of Italy. From the Veneto of the sixties to widespread well-being, from the confrontation with the television imagery to the advent of mass consumption, from the false myth of an uncontaminated environment to wars whose atrocities arrive live on our screens, it deals with thorny themes and prejudices . He obtains indications and ideas for defining what still remains to be done on issues which, today more than ever, concern us all closely: ecological conversion, migration, universal rights, effective and not only stated equality, the new forms of poverty, the relationship with young people, the real engine of rebirth, up to the goal of responsible autonomy.

With the concreteness of the administrator and beyond any ideological barrier, Luca Zaia shows that, if changes inevitably confront unknown problems, we must however know how to seize extraordinary opportunities as well. In the testimony of those who never stop believing in the future, an invitation to exercise freedom of choice, not giving in to pessimism, “the last attitude our community needs in the face of the challenges that await it and which are just as tough to those in which it is already engaged”.

The meeting is part of the “Aperitivi in Cantina” review by Viticoltori Ponte which recently stood out for the participation of the actor Kabir Bedi and has many new appointments scheduled with leading personalities from the world of politics, culture, music and of the show.
