The Secretary General Prof. Michele Capasso, the President of the Council of Ambassadors prof. Abdelhak Azzouzi, the members of the Governing Council, the members of the "United States of the World" and of the "Mediterranean Foundation", the heads of branch offices and autonomous sections express deep condolences for the untimely passing of Dr. Shaikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Daij Al Khalifa, who died on Friday, January 27, 2023 at the age of 65.
In September 2020, he called for peace and coexistence among all religions, sects and peoples and received many Jews during their visits to the Kingdom of Bahrain, playing an important role towards peaceful coexistence. He was also among the personalities planning Pope Francis' historic first visit to Bahrain in November 2022.
Until his death, Al Khalifa was Deputy Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the ISA Cultural Center, a national institution affiliated to the Manama Royal Court. Since March 2018, he has also served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the King Hamad Global Center for Peaceful Coexistence.
“Some countries create centers of tolerance and peaceful coexistence to have peaceful coexistence in their countries,” Al Khalifa told The Media Line in 2020. “Bahrain is just the opposite. We have had a peaceful existence for many years - hundreds of years - and we would like to reflect this to the world through our center and through the United States of the World of which I am honored to be a part”.
Michele Capasso and Pia Molinari recall the visit to the headquarters of the Fondazione Mediterraneo and the United States of the World in May 2018, on the occasion of the Mediterranean Prize for Culture awarded to him and together with the title of "Ambassador of the United States of the World".

Gianmarco Finizio, aka "Guasto", visited the Museum of Peace and, in particular, the section dedicated to Pino Daniele.
He was born in Naples in 1990 and started playing the guitar and writing songs when he was very young, in middle school, attending an experimental music class.
Between one job and another as animator in villages, delivery 'on a non-electric bike!', live performer in various clubs, he began to self-produce his first tracks, together with DJ Fabio Stingo, with whom he began a techno/funk auteur musical journey.
So far he has released two singles, the first one "In what sense?", produced by Mauro Spenillo (aka Socio M), who, after discovering him, involved Antonio De Carmine Principe in the project, with whom they produced the second single "Che c'hai d'accendere?" (NyNa City 91 record / Artist First).
"Funkyland" is Guasto's new single, available on the radio and digitally. The song is a tale that takes us on a journey on a planet made up of grooves, rhodes, fender bass and guitar, synths, strings, recalling sounds of a well-defined style, amidst various famous musical quotations where we find George Benson, Bee Gees, Diana Ross, EWF, Kool and the Gang, passing by Jovanotti and breathing in some Neapolitan atmospheres close to Pino Daniele. As well as being a tribute to some of the giants of this style of music, the song projects us into that wonderful ideal land, where we can take refuge, dance and dance in complete freedom 'in this shabby reality'.
He was among the winners of 'Area Sanremo' 2020. At the Museum, he performed some of Pino's songs.

The professor Michele Capasso - Secretary General of the "United States of the World" and president of the "Fondazione Mediterraneo" - addressed, as usual, a message for the new year 2023.
The hope is that in this year we can reach a truce and then peace in Ukraine and in other parts of the world through the enhancement of diversity.
“Only by tackling, solving and harmonizing diversity, conditions of misery, ignorance and injustice in the world - says prof. Capasso - it is possible to extinguish hotbeds of discord, riot, hatred; it must be understood that diversities, if harmonized, constitute a strength and a source of enrichment for all humanity, complementing each other instead of opposing each other. It is not a question of pursuing a system of universal harmony, as Fourier or Leibnitz wished, because we started from a pre-established universal harmony: the great inequalities existing between our brothers and sisters scattered throughout the world require our commitment to harmonize them. On this theme it is worth proposing an example: if in an orchestra everyone played on their own, a 'cacophony' would arise; if all the instruments were identical, it would be 'monotony'; the inequality of instruments and the harmonization of sounds is much better to arrive at a great ‘universal symphony’”.
