The meeting with the President of the Republic - 10 July 2014


On July 10th 2014, the President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano welcomed the members of the National Bioethics Committee - led by Chairman Prof. Francesco Paolo Casavola - to the Quirinal Palace (official residence of the President).

During the meeting, Chairman Casavola highlighted the emerging issues individuals and society as a whole are faced with, raised by scientific  advances and human life evolution. These aspects were pointed out while discussing the various activities that have characterized the NBC efforts, in recent years, alongside the goals it has set out to achieve throughout the current mandate.

President Napolitano has strongly advocated for the National Bioethics Committee to increasingly become a benchmark and a fruitful exchange platform, and for a suitable divulgation of the opinions it regularly releases, in order to be accessible as widely as possible both to the experts of specialized fields and citizens.
