The Nobel prize Shirine Ebadi made a Plea for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani,that was welcomed and spread by all members and all branches of the Fondazione Mediterraneo.

Sakineh, a 43-year-old Iranian woman, mother of two children, was convicted of adultery and complicity in the murder of her husband and sentenced to death by stoning.

In the plea, intellectuals such as the sociologist Edgar Morin, the historians Elisabeth Roudinesco and Max Gallo, the writer Marek Halter, the philosophers Daniel Schiffer and Michel Serres, urged to "stop these methods and this un fair and barbaric punishment” asking for " the respect for dignity and freedom for all the Iranian women who are oppressed or threatened".

A race against time for an impossibile mission: the creation of a traffic roundabout with the Totem for Peace within the 25th of September 2010, on the occasion of the Europarc 2010 in Pescasseroli with 30 countries delegates and internationally renowned people.

The president Michele Capasso did not stop when in difficulty and in few days drafted an operation plan, involved the economic stakeholders and started the works: a real “miracle for peace”.
