Event Description:
To Explore What the Mediterranean Region Represented in the Age of Progress and What it May Represent in the Era of Geopolitical Re-alliances and Globalization

The Mediterranean has been the cradle of civilizations with a unique history of having given birth to all the Western cultures, to three world-wide religions, and to opening pathways to the Orient. An organic and autonomous Mediterranean identity may not exist as such today; but in the collective imagination of the people of the world and especially in the last two centuries with migrations from the Mediterranean area settling throughout the entire world, there exists a “popolo mediterraneo.” Globalization has made evident the importance of preserving culture and the development of a consciousness that especially constitutes a matchless resource for the nations of the Mediterranean, and which the new Europe cannot do without. These are the reasons that justify an attempt to recognize the value of the Mediterranean basin as a region having an original culture capable of connecting many other fragmented cultures. More »
