Politics recovered: "Open government is the way we have found to respond to difficult times"

Fabrizio Scrollini has a constructive knowledge. His vision is one of the widest and most consistent in the region. Español Português

Fabrizio Scrollini’s is, to me, one of the most rewarding interviews in the series. I guess it shows, but I could not - and would not - hide it.

With Fabrizio we have been on a “long road” together, for many years. We were just kids when we first met - him, "a Maldonado boy” (Maldonado is a stream, now running underground, that used to be one of the natural limits of Buenos Aires) and me, an "arrogant little porteño (from the city of Buenos Aires)." Our paths in life have crossed again and again. That morning also, in which he arrived very early to the IMPA Cultural Center in Buenos Aires for the interview, carrying his suitcase.

We listen to Fabrizio. We listen to him because he knows, because his knowledge is a constructive one. And we know that, on these issues, he is one of the persons with a wider and most consistent vision in the region.

Below, a treat - the complete interview:

 

Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.
