Conte was speaking at the private event, titled “Forty-five years after the Helsinki Accords; Cardinal Silvestrini and the Vatican Östpolitik,” yesterday, Sept. 14, 2020 at 9:30 am. Organized by Italian Ambassador to the Holy See, Ambassador Pietro Sebastiani, the event took place outdoors, in the cloister of Palazzo Borromeo, in full compliance with anti-Covid 19 rules and provisions.
