THE FONDAZIONE MEDITERRANEO PARTICIPATES IN THE 2021 EDITION OF THE STATES GENERAL OF CULTURE: "THE NEW FRONTIERS OF CULTURE"

The Fondazione Mediterraneo participated in the 2021 edition of the States General of Culture: “The new frontiers of culture” organized by Sole 24 Ore.
The culture and entertainment sector has been one of the hardest hit by the containment measures introduced in the EU to curb the spread of the coronavirus. In recent months, limitations and 'pre-covid' business models have been exposed, but at the same time an incredible opportunity for renewal and reorganization has presented itself, for those who will be able to seize it.
On this occasion, the president Michele Capasso underlined that the profound cultural and technological changes require new professional figures, new investments, and a new widespread digital competence.
Internationalization, transmedia and new skills are some of the elements not to be underestimated for a sector that must transform in order to restart

"SUNDAY OF THE SEA" CELEBRATED AT THE MUSEUM OF PEACE MAMT

The MAMT Peace Museum celebrated the "Sunday of the sea" with the celebration of the Holy Mass dedicated to the migrants who died in the sea. Previously, homage was paid to the "TOTEM DELLAPACE" with the urn of the unknown migrant in the port of Naples.
Every year, 11 July is an opportunity to remember the 1.7 million workers of the maritime industry, but also the many chaplains and volunteers of the "Stella Maris" who continue to offer their support, at every latitude.
"The world has stopped, but ships have never stopped carrying medical equipment and essential medicines from one port to another to support the fight against the spread of the virus", recalled Cardinal Peter K.A. Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, in the message for the day.
The Day was born in England in 1975 on the initiative of the Apostolate of the Sea, the Mission to Seafarers and the Sailors' Society, but then took on an international and ecumenical dimension. In Italy it was celebrated in a particular way in Savona, with the Holy Mass broadcast live on RaiUno and on the large video walls of the Museum.
Pope Francis, in the Angelus from the Gemelli Hospital, recalled the importance of the sea as a place of solidarity and love
.
On this occasion, the Fondazione Mediterraneo sent a letter to the Minister for Ecological Transition professor Roberto Cingolani requesting the establishment of a "control room" for an integrated governance of issues related to the sea and the development of targeted strategies for its protection.

THE FOUNDATION PARTICIPATES IN THE EVENT "YEMEN: EMERGENCY WITHOUT BORDERS, SOLIDARITY WITHOUT BORDERS"

Yemen, the most serious humanitarian crisis of our time.

Over 4 million people have been forced to flee their homes and are now displaced within national borders.
The escalation of the conflict has led to a dramatic increase in the prices of food and other raw materials.
Consequently, the main problem right now is the lack of food: around 16 million people suffer from hunger.
In some areas of the country, about 1 in 4 children suffer from acute malnutrition

COVID 19, THE APPEAL OF THE FONDAZIONE MEDITERRANEO: "THE IDEAL VACCINE MUST BE PRODUCED AND SPREAD"

"We are all currently undergoing mass testing. The current vaccine has short-term immune coverage and is hypothesized to trigger thrombotic phenomena. It is essential to achieve the production and dissemination of a vaccine that is safe and accessible to all: the ideal vaccine." It is essential to achieve the production and dissemination of a vaccine that is safe and accessible to all: the ideal vaccine. "This is what the Fondazione Mediterraneo and its experts underline is necessary in this moment, in which the Coronavirus pandemic has generated an information chaos and of indications.
Corrado
 Perricone, Neapolitan hematologist former head of the Immunohematology Center of Santobono-Pausilypon and former member of the Superior Health Council, explains:
"Since the Spike protein was highlighted, in relation to its possible use as a Coronavirus vaccine, we had dreamed of having solved the problem: today, on the other hand, we find ourselves having to face a new reality, namely that of finding other more valid alternative solutions".

"We are all the subject of a mass experimentation with current vaccines", underlines the Fondazione Mediterraneo in the appeal: moreover, the current vaccine that "has a short-term immune coverage, being immunity linked to the virus in its entirety it contains as components 27 proteins while the vaccines in use can only use the one available that is the Spike protein".
The "ideal vaccine should have high immunogenicity and an established ability to induce effective immune responses".
The problem of thrombi and the two proposed investigations.
The researchers at Northeastern University in Boston hypothesize that it may be the viral protein "S" that triggers the thrombotic phenomena, "binding the now well-known ACE 2 receptor on the endothelium (inner lining) of the vessels and thus triggering the cascade of events that leads to the formation of thrombi", continues the haematologist.
The former member of the CSS explains that before this crisis the vaccine was understood as a "method of immunization through the insertion into the human body of an attenuated pathogen or a subunit of it". Unfortunately, "it escapes most of us - he continues - that the administration has an absorption phase that brings it into the systemic circulation so that the organism recognized as a foreign body produces selective antibodies against protein S. In reality, the production of protein S does not is under control and consequently the secretion and production of protein S and also the associated risks are absolutely unpredictable".
In this regard, Perricone underlines the study just published in the European Journal of Internal Medicine entitled "Sars Cov2 Vaccines: Lights and Shadows", "which takes stock of protein S and its possible role in inducing alterations in endothelial function. and platelet aggregability; this unpredictability could also explain the susceptibility of people without a known thromboembolic risk".
The Fondazione Mediterraneo proposes two surveys. The first: "Check the normal functioning of the immune system to be sure that the subject is suitable and will be able to withstand the vaccine, taking note of any risk", where "it appears essential to give a certain certainty of not having a predisposition hereditary (quite frequent case) that can be carried out by means of a flow cytometer and a simple sampling". The second: “the search for the genetic variant factor II and factor V Leiden as well as MTHFR”
