THE FOUNDATION WISHES THE MANFREDI COUNCIL WELL IN THEIR WORK

"At the centre is the collective interest," said Manfredi at the presentation of the council.
"All united we will sing" was the phrase uttered by Raffaele Capasso when he was appointed Mayor of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio for the first time immediately after the eruption of Vesuvius that destroyed the Vesuvian town.
President Michele Capasso recalled this during the joint meeting of the Governing Council and the Scientific Committee of the Fondazione Mediterraneo, wishing Mayor Manfredi and his Council every success in their work.
"Hope is strong - said Capasso - because Manfredi has demonstrated concrete skills for the Common Good". President Capasso also illustrated the personalities in the junta chosen by Mayor Gaetano Manfredi, starting with his right-hand woman, 67-year-old Mia Filippone, a retired Latin and Greek teacher and former headmistress of the well-known Neapolitan high schools Genovesi (attended by President Capasso) and Sannazaro: she is delegated to Education and Family. The most delicate delegation, Budget, goes to a technical-political Pier Paolo Baretta, 62 years old, professor of Economic History at the Pontifical Antonianum University in Rome. Another lecturer in Infrastructure and Mobility is Edoardo Cosenza, president of the Order of Engineers of Naples and former councillor for Public Works of the Campania Region. Cosenza was chosen by Manfredi, as was Laura Lieto, 55, holder of the chair of Urbanisation Theory at the Federico II University and now delegated to Urban Planning.
Teresa Armato, 66, journalist, former senator and regional councillor, but also vice-president of the Province of Naples, will be in charge of Tourism. The 44-year-old Chiara Marciani, an expert in the programming of European Funds, former councillor for Training of the Campania Region, will be in charge of Youth and Labour Policies. Social Policies will go to Luca Trapanese, 44 years old, founder of the non-profit organization "A Ruota Libera". Antonio De Iesu, 66, former police chief of Naples and deputy chief of police, will be in charge of security and legality. The provincial president of the PD, 63-year-old Paolo Mancuso, former chief prosecutor in Nola, will be in charge of the environment and the sea. Health and the environment are the responsibilities of Vincenzo Santagada, 63, professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry at the Federico II University, and president of the Order of Pharmacists of Naples. The 49-year-old Emanuela Ferrante, a lawyer and official at the Agenzia delle Entrate, will be in charge of sport and equal opportunities.
"I would like to wish everyone - concluded President Capasso - good work and the total availability of the Foundation (whose headquarters, with the "Totem for Peace" symbol of the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD, is in front of the City of Naples) to strengthen and enhance the role of the city of Naples in the Euro-Mediterranean area.

POPE FRANCIS VISITING THE DAUGHTERS OF MARY HELP OF CHRISTIANS - SALESIANS OF DON BOSCO

A surprise visit by Pope Francis to the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA). To them the encouragement to be "generative communities" and "women of hope" in this "fragile and uncertain time" of the pandemic that "has made so many massacres" and "multiplied poverty." Then the recommendation to stay "next to the poor and the young" and to always be faithful to the original charism of Don Bosco.
The Pope was welcomed with a blue and white flag of Argentina, a glass of Mate and an Indian neck rosary by the 200 Daughters of Mary Help of Christians - better known as the "Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco" - from all over the world. He met them at the General Curia in Rome, where the 24th General Chapter on the theme "Generative Communities of Life in the Heart of the Contemporary World" is being held from October 17-24.
After greetings and applause, the Pontiff sat in his "cathedra" before a large audience, and in his speech, interspersed with wide-ranging passages, he encouraged the service of Salesian women throughout the world, especially in today's "multicultural social context, marked by tensions and challenges that are at times even dramatic, such as those caused by the pandemic". A "fragile and uncertain" time, wounded by numerous "forms of poverty that the current crisis has produced and multiplied," the Pope said. "This is terrible. Poverty is multiplied, even hidden poverty." The thought went particularly to the "many well-off families or at least in the middle class" who now "do not have the necessities of life." "The pandemic has made so many massacres," the Pope said and then recommended that the sisters immerse themselves in this complex scenario always "rooted in Christ" and, above all, without ever giving in to the temptations of "worldliness, in its different forms and disguises."
Pope Francis wanted to go personally to the "House" of the religious, for decades dedicated to the apostolate among the poor and to the formation of young people, to greet them and wish "good work" to the newly elected superior general, Mother Chiara Cazzuola, and to thank the outgoing superior, Mother Yvonne Reungoat, to whom he jokingly said, "I hope that Mother will return to Africa and if there is no place in Africa, in Patagonia!"
The president of the Fondazione Mediterraneo Michele Capasso, in expressing his most affectionate wishes to Mother Chiara Cazzuola, reiterated his affection for the FMA and his deep fraternal friendship with Mother Yvonne, recalling her words when - on a visit to the Museum of Peace in November 2017 - he inaugurated the Salesian World Oratory by donating the relics of Saint Mary Mazzarello, founder of the FMA, to the Museum of Peace.
