Today, as in the past, the cultural objectives
and everyday activities of the Fondazione
Giacomo Brodolini are largely inspired by
the significance that Brodolini attached to the
concepts of conflict, rights and equality in the
context of a society that still had some difficulty
in acknowledging them at the time of his death.
Of all the achievements, the Italian Workers'
Statute remains an outstanding example. With
it, in fact, ownership no longer constituted the
fundamental principle upon which relations were
based and the workplace became a social area
within which freedom, safety, security and dignity
were guaranteed for the workers. The essential
conception that emerges sees the right to work as
a means to enable the coexistence of different but
not necessarily conflicting interests.
