[Autom. eng. transl.] "Don't settle for small dreams, but dream big." Pope Francis asked the university students during his visit to Bologna in October 2017, but it is as if he had asked all the young people who pass through it every morning. entry of their universities full of worries for the imminent examination and hopes for their future. The Pope encourages the University to still be the cradle of a culture of hope and peace, entrusting it with three rights to renew the dream of a new humanism: the right to culture, as a cultivation of a critical sense opposed to the "theater of indignation" ; the right to hope, as a contrast to the "sentences made by populisms" and to the "disturbing and profitable spread of false news"; and finally the right to peace as everyone's right to settle conflicts without violence. Silvano Petrosino is among the three professors who give an original and courageous reading of the Pope's message, which is both promise and responsibility.
