IThis meeting titled “Proximity and distance” features:
Luigi Zoja and Father Benedetto Rossi encourage reflection on how the commandment of Jesus developed and changed: “Love your neighbour as yourself”. As the world we live in becomes increasingly larger, identifying our neighbours becomes more and more difficult: indifference and the disappearance of traditional values have led to the disappearance of the object of love. In this regard, the distance of and the mediation by technique – the emergence of social networks – in interpersonal relationships is creating a new need for intimacy, sometimes in complicated, and even twisted and perverse forms.
