Nuccio Ordine’s Speech

Nuccio Ordine was a philosopher, writer and expert in literary theory. In 2023 he was awarded the Princess of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities. Unfortunately, he couldn’t deliver his speech, which he had already written, because he died in June 2023, 4 months before the ceremony.

One of my C1 students has suggested that we read his speech, in which he addresses the importance of education. I find it truly inspiring.
