“I’m used to always giving the best, not leaving. I’m used to making decisions without getting involved with emotions: it’s essential in a job like mine. But before rationality, stubbornness and emotions there are priorities. There is ethics. There are times when we need to be able to put aside our goals and ambitions. Moments when we must maintain balance by purifying thoughts of fears, anger, pride, sadness, worries, selfishness. This is one of those moments, a moment when there are people suffering, going to hospital and others living in fear. We are, I am, faced with a crisis, that this time does not show up at sea, but on the ground. It’s called Covid 19 and it’s an emergency as far as I’m concerned. It’s not other people’s problem, it’s not a problem for states. It’s about me, as a man and a citizen and I feel responsible for my actions “. – Giancarlo Pedote
