Italian Network of the "Anna Lindh" Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for Dialogue between Cultures 2004 -2017

The Fondazione Mediterraneo was the Head of the "Italian Network of the Anna Lindh Foundation for Dialogue between Cultures" from 2004 to 2017 and has supported - from the beginning and with its own substantial resources - this process by contributing to the implementation of over 2,000 actions: for this has obtained the praise and recognition of the heads of the FAL, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and representatives of international bodies.

The "Anna Lindh" Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for Dialogue between Cultures (ALF) is a unique organization of its kind created by the European Union and the Mediterranean Partner Countries within the Union for the Mediterranean. It is a network of networks of civil society bodies and institutions (universities, local communities, etc.).

From 2004 to 2017, the Italian Network of the Anna Lindh Foundation represented the largest network of the Anna Lindh Foundation (FAL) and played a substantial role in the birth and development of the institution created by the European Union and partner countries.
The role of the Fondazione Mediterraneo has been and is to perform the function of connection between the various members who actively act for the promotion of dialogue between cultures, promoting the visibility and action of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership at national and international level.
Since September 2016 the majority of the members of the Italian Network (1,034 out of 1084) have formed the "Anna Lindh Italia Onlus Federation" which has the sole objective of promoting, disseminating and supporting the aims of the FAL.

The Italian Network of the Anna Lindh Foundation is now represented by Ride - aps. (*) Info: https://ride.mediper.eu/it/

(*) The Ride - aps has been appointed leader of the Italian Network by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with effect from 15.09.2017. This act - in contrast to the elective democratic practices in place in the majority of the national networks of the Euro Mediterranean countries and with the rules of democratic representation imposed by the European treaties and by the statute of the Anna Lindh Foundation - resulted in:

  • the reaction of 1,037 members of the Italian Network who formed themselves in the "Anna Lindh Italia non-profit organization";
  • parliamentary questions to the Italian Parliament and the European Parliament;
  • the signing of an APPEAL to the President of the Italian Republic and to other authorities (signed by the leaders of the national networks, by the majority of members of the Italian network and by representatives of international institutions).

The dossier is being examined by the Italian and European institutional bodies for a solution.
