I think that freedom has always been the most important
right for man. The story is full of people who fought for freedom, like the partisans,
the American Indians, the Asian Indians with Gandhi and many other people in
the world even now are fighting for this.
There are two different kinds of freedom: physical freedom, that was the thing that permitted man to go where he wanted;
the second was the freedom of thought and to write what he wished. That is the type of freedom that I prefer.

Freedom is like the air that we breath. We don’t realize that the air
is around us but if somebody takes it away, we smother.
In fact freedom is the most important right of
each person and to protect and to get it many people in the world fight against dictatorships.
Freedom is the possibility to express our opinions, to claim our rights,
to reunite together, to discuss about many problems or to judge the actions or
the ideals of powerful men.
But what does freedom mean?
It means the possibility to live without the fear of tortures or incarceration
for our ideals.
In many places of the world there isn’t freedom and we in Italy
are lucky but we cannot think only about us. We must fight so that all the people in the world can enjoy this great value.

Freedom is one of the most important values of a society.
There are many kinds of freedom: for us freedom is maybe more superficial because
it's to come back at home very late, to go to a disco and do all what we like doing...
We feel very lucky to live in a society like the Italian one, because there are
many others which are worse, like a lot of countries in all the world.
In many parts of the world children are forced to work every day for many hours,
young girls must prostitute to live, people live under dictatorship. Unfortunately not only in the poor countries but also
in the Western ones and in Europe the woman is often illtreated and is object of violence.
Sometimes freedom is too much! In fact it
shouldn't mean that we can do all what we want but that we must respect the rules of society and the laws of our country to live together with happiness.

I love my freedom because
without it I couldn’t live. Lots of people die for their freedom and this I think is very important and we can learn
from our mistakes. Till now there have been lots of wars, and where there is
a war there isn’t freedom. For many centuries liberty wasn’t a right and people that didn’t have it usually
were very poor and exploited. Even now in too many parts of the world some people haven’t got freedom. Also in Europe there is this problem for
the girls who are forced to prostitution.

FREEDOM: dream or reality?
it be beautiful to get up one morning and understand to be in a world where you can say, think and do everything you want,
without any obligation or restriction, free from everyone or everything. In the end, what is freedom? It depends on the part
of the world where you live. For us who live in the western society the concept of freedom is softer, it is individual freedom
rather than political freedom. For a western teenager restrictions to freedom
are to return back home early in the evening, not to go to the disco or in general be obliged to do something that we don’t
like doing; instead for a man of the third world means living under terrible dictatorships, where they sometimes are treated
like animals without rights but only with obligations or the fear of a sure death. We don’t know what we can do to help
them, but we’d like to do this.
