Editori: Colour frontispiece, profusely illustrated throughout. By: Dante Alighieri ; [edited by Friedrich Beck]. In order to achieve this goal, it is essential that civil society is free and plural: only in this way can diverse projects and existential and social experiences occur and illustrate that the good of society as a whole may be pursued through different paths. More precisely, the presence inside society of people and groups that, although arising from various cosmologies and values, are engaged in a search for the common good, is fundamental for at least three reasons.
Finally, a free and plural society helps in the understanding that the common good is not an already acquired fact, but a triumph that matures through encountering differing experiences. A State that is inspired by the principles of freedom and democracy does not pretend to create the values that the citizens must share, nor the attitudes that should guide their participation in the life of the polis.
It derives instead one and the other from the civil society and combines them within a legal framework, in which different projects to form a just society may coexist.
For these reasons, the State has the task to ensure the pluralism of the civil society. This means firstly that it has to respect its plurality, avoiding identification with and support for only one or some realities active in this area; it further means that it should guarantee equal opportunities for expression, as to the conceptions of life and the world that are underlying the different social and cultural experiences within the civil society.
In the context that we have attempted to outline above, religions, with their very existence, help to strengthen and enrich the value of pluralism in civil society by introducing in public discourse a new question: the question of truth. Many religions, indeed, particularly those which affirm to be founded on a divine revelation — proclaim to be the bearers of a truth that applies to all human beings. This puts a fundamental question, that of the relationship between truth and freedom. Social life should be characterised by the free pursuit of the common good: the responsibility for such research is unavoidable, even by those who consider they have discovered the truth about humanity and the world.
In order to avoid the escalation of religiously motivated conflicts within a society of increasing religious plurality and visibility, each religion should contribute to the solution by expressing their own spiritual patrimony, translating and debating it in terms understandable by all, accepting the limitations arising from the public and democratic encounter. Moreover, religious freedom is grounded on the dignity of the human person: to support it means to affirm that it is possible to participate fully in free and open debate in society, without anyone having to abandon or put in brackets the claim to truth of his own religion or vision of the world.

Part of the problem is determined by the fact that the category of religious symbols is extremely complex and diversified. Here we will refer only to the symbols that are worn upon himself by a person a kippah, a turban, a veil etc.
It is of fundamental importance for a democratic society that this right is fully respected in public spaces, and that to it are opposed only general limitations, aimed at protecting safety, health, public order and at ensuring that the use of the symbol is the result of an autonomous and conscious choice and not of an imposition.
This may also be valid within institutional places, when the symbol is not worn by the representative of the institution, but by the recipients of the services of that institution think of the students of a school or of the patients of a public hospital. The freedom of individuals and groups to exhibit religious symbols can find a further limitation in the performance of public functions in institutional settings, in order to ensure — also visually — impartiality towards all the citizens.
Within public schools, considering their educational function, impartiality does not automatically imply the elimination of all the symbols.

Indeed it is possible to reach a consensus on a local level, in order to decide either the total exclusion or the inclusion of more religious symbols. For example, in many schools we have learned to celebrate the festivities of different religions and to include them in a new educational path. Places of worship The possibility to meet together and perform acts of worship is at the core of the right to religious freedom. It has been dearly earned in Europe, through struggles aimed at affirming, primarily, the right to domestic worship, followed by the right to worship publicly, and to break down the restrictions imposed on religious minorities.
Today most European countries ensure to the faithful of any religion, in principle, the right to have its own church, synagogue, mosque, temple or meeting place, with the only limitations being dependent by the regulations of public security. The possibility of having a place where to meet together, in order to perform acts of worship, should not depend on the existence of good relationships between a religious group and the public institutions.
It descends from the right to religious freedom and thus must be ensured for everybody. As every right, also the right to have a public place of worship is not limitless. There are standards to be followed in a religious community that intends to open a place of worship, in order to ensure the safety of the faithful who attend it and the rights of the people who live in the vicinity. Laws and regulations must not be discriminatory in nature.
Breve storia delle religioni by Ambrogio Donini
Finally, the fact that — in this as in other fields — the public authorities, furthering the religious needs of their citizens, should not take away the responsibility to build, fund and maintain a place of worship from the same religious communities. Such responsibility constitutes one of the most important measures and expressions of the community, inherent in every religion. Schools The school is the place in which children, adolescents and teens, from different linguistic, cultural and religious areas, live daily together.
They are united by the fact of being in front of a substantially unitary mode of education. The basic addresses of the school, both public and private, are common and aimed, first of all, at learning principles and concepts shared by all citizens. Compulsory education has, as its main task, teaching the necessary knowledge for a positive and conscious inclusion of the new generations in society. The understanding of the fundamental tenets of a plural religious culture is basic knowledge now. This kind of teaching should then be developed at higher levels of education.
This knowledge should fall, by right, in the sphere of the common course. The school is thus called upon to give its own contribution, in order to educate all pupils, whatever their origin and religious affiliation, a respect for the principles of religious freedom established by the Italian Constitution. It is appropriate that, in the context of school autonomy, they open up spaces, identified by stakeholders teachers, pupils, families , in order to activate forms of knowledge and mutual comparison among the different confessional components present in a given reality.
In the public school it should also be possible for parents and pupils to ask the school institution to create courses carried out by members of the different religions. These teachings must also be marked by a setting of a cultural nature, consistent with the aims of the school and free from any attitude or catechetical proselytizing. In regard to private schools with religious orientation, the need to provide the basic elements of a pluralistic religious culture should be emphasized and, at the same time, they must be guaranteed the right to issue their own confessional religious education.
This is the reason why, since centuries, churches and religious communities care about ensuring detainees and patients the spiritual assistance they request, through their own representatives. It is also the task of the public authorities to ensure respect for the right to spiritual assistance and to facilitate the practical implementation, through the access of accredited representatives of the religious communities, to prisons and hospitals. Above this basic level it may be appropriate to ensure, inside the institution, a stable presence of representatives of a religion, when this is necessary because of the number of followers of that religion who reside in the prison or hospital.
