Carlo Levi affirms the aversion against the abstractly ferocious State, which makes people an indistinct material unity and enslaves them; he also criticizes religion, which only creates myths and rituals in place of the sacred. For the author, freedom is consciousness of reality, it is knowledge. To avoid the loss of autonomy and the independence of individuals and society, it is necessary to interrogate ourselves constantly on the meaning of freedom. The concept of freedom must continuously be rethought through social and cultural forces: only in this way can humanity indeed be free of fear.
— Valdo Spini, member of the Italian Parliament and president of the Fondazione Circolo Rosselli, Florence
