UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD: MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

The "International Executive Committee" (IEC) of the United States of the World and the Fondazione Mediterraneo met in Naples on 21 and 28 March 2022.
Among the topics discussed was the decision to maintain the institutional headquarters and the Museum of Peace in the historic Palazzo Pierce in Naples.
Thanks to the high institutional sensitivity of the Prefect of Naples, H.E. Claudio Palomba - who visited the Museum and the institutional premises at length and in depth on 15 March 2022 - and the concrete commitment of the Regional Directorate of the Agenzia del Demanio, it was possible to reassure the partner countries that the premises and the Museum would remain in place.
The final ratification will take place on 30 June 2022 at the end of the renewal of the state concessions, as explicitly assured in a note from the same regional directorate.

THE FOUNDATION SUPPORTS THE HUMANITARIAN MISSION "SUSTAIN ODESSA”

The Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Anna Lindh Federation support Senator Giuseppe Lumia and the world of volunteering that, once again, is giving its best to help the Ukrainian people in their dramatic daily life, while they are under the bombs, while they fight, while they cry for the unprecedented sufferings that war always brings.
The whole world has mobilised, including Europe and Italy of course, with an extraordinary commitment, full of humanity and concrete action for peace.
The story of Senator Lumia:
"We left Sicily with a special mission: to help the community of Odessa. It is a marvellous city, rich in history and also with deep ties with Italy. It overlooks the Black Sea and is suffering the terrible gunfire from the military ships deployed in front of the port. It is difficult and risky at this time to reach.
We undertook a very long journey. We left Palermo on Thursday afternoon, crossing all of Italy, Slovenia, Hungary and Romania to get as close as possible to this city, which is still populated, and which is running risks and experiencing unspeakable suffering.
We are loaded with medical supplies and food, selected on the basis of the requests made to us. One thing struck me most of all: the request for insulin. In just a few hours, we were able to collect a good quantity to get it to people who are in dire and vital need.
We have another goal: to open a safe humanitarian road to shift attention to this part of Ukraine, which has remained neglected until now.
We have an Italian presence that has remained in Odessa, in which the intelligent and courageous work of our diplomatic adviser stands out.
Those who know me know that it is not my custom to bring out the emotional and affective side of my character, but I assure you that there is a whirlwind of deep feelings, the kind that mark life, even for someone like me who knows how high the risk is for his commitment. And this is how the group of volunteers who set out on this humanitarian mission is experiencing it, in its own small way, as well as the group that generously and intelligently supported us in the preparations.
Yes, it is more than ever the moment of "we". In the world of mature volunteering, we think and act with this not always appreciated existential and social approach: to open up paths, to stimulate and anticipate the choral commitment, including that of the institutions and the international community.
You cannot imagine how much solidarity and willingness, in addition to that already activated by a thousand roads, has been set in motion in these hours. Odessa deserves it. All Ukrainian cities and communities deserve it. This also applies to the other wars, let us never forget, of which there are seventy and which are often left to fester in indifference".

INAUGURATION OF THE JUDICIAL YEAR 2022 TAR CAMPANIA

The inauguration ceremony of the 2020 Judicial Year of the TAR CAMPANIA took place. Michele Capasso and Pia Molinari spoke on behalf of the Fondazione Mediterraneo.
The work of the Campania Regional Administrative Court was characterised by "rather high standards of efficiency and optimal levels in the relationship between the quality of the work carried out and the resources applied, despite the lack of personnel".
These are the words of the president of the Campania TAR, Vincenzo Salamone, in his report for the inauguration of the judicial year of the regional administrative court.
In 2021, the Campania Regional Administrative Court could count on a staff of 39 units divided into 8 sections, of which the IV section "forced" to work with reduced ranks with only 4 magistrates.
It should be noted," Salamone writes, "that the number of magistrates in service at first instance is considerably lower than the number of magistrates in law, in view of the 49 posts provided for in the establishment plan. The number of staff could increase after the assignment of the winners of the competition still in progress.
"The increase of the staff - underlines the president - would allow the rebalancing of the workloads and a less fragmentation of the tasks". On the results front, Salamone points out that in 2021 there was a 15.28 per cent reduction in the backlog, which made it possible to go from 13,243 pending appeals on 31 December 2020 to 11,220 on 31 December 2021. On the whole - he concludes - the trend of the Court's judicial activity is in line with the rules on the acceleration and definition of judgments in certain times and with the objective recommended by the Presidency Council of the Administrative Justice to reduce the pending cases".
