"An exciting and meaningful meeting, the greatest honor of my life so far": this is how Nicolò Govoni, executive director of Still I Rise - a non-profit organization dedicated to the issues of education, safety and protection for refugee and vulnerable minors - comments on the meeting with Pope Francis, which took place in the Rai studios of Saxa Rubra and aired on Raiuno in the special episode of the program 'A Sua immagine'. "Until 5 minutes before entering it all seemed extremely unreal - adds Govoni - I still could not believe what was going to happen, but when we met in the studio, everything became easier. Talking about complex issues such as education, children's rights, the anxiety of young people was simple, easy, almost like conversing with an old friend".
