“Carlo Rovelli excluded from the Frankfurt Book Fair for criticizing Crosetto on stage during the May 1st event.”
Carlo Rovelli, a renowned theoretical physicist, was excluded from the Frankfurt Book Fair due to pressure from the Italian government after criticizing Defense Minister Crosetto during a May 1st event. This decision has raised concerns about academic freedom and political censorship in Italy. Many see it as a threat to intellectual freedom and progress, and a reminder of past instances of censorship and persecution under Mussolini's fascist regime. The incident highlights the need to protect freedom of expression and resist censorship in all forms.
