"Attraverso la prova: ll Cile democratico nella testimonianza del presidente Patricio Aylwin Azócar"
Abstract: Patricio Aylwin Azócar was president of the Republic of Chile from 1990 to 1994. On him, above all, fell the weight of the task of pacifying a country which was politically split and deeply wounded by the dictatorial regime which had been installed by general Pinochet, who with a coup d’état brought to an end the experience of the Allende government, and setting it on the path towards democracy. In this interview president Aylwin explains those dramatic years, placing them within a broader history of the country. Going over the main stages of his political career, he traces the path of Chile during the twentieth century, with the birth of the principal political cultures which characterized it, in particular with regard to the thought and the political experience of the Christian-Democrats, to which he was committed. On the basis of this lengthy experience and knowledge of the events, Aylwin highlights the human and ideal resources with which Chile can face the future.
