With many webinar links women representing various fields - politics, culture, religion, volunteering, education, science, etc. - members of the KIMIYYA program of the Fondazione Mediterraneo celebrated the "World Day against violence against women" at the Museum of Peace - MAMT. The women members of the “Anna Lindh Italia Federation” participated.
It was the UN assembly in 1999 that chose this date in memory of the sacrifice of the sisters Patria, Minerva and Maria Teresa Mirabal, killed by agents of the dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. But what is the story of the Mirabal sisters? To find out, we need to go back to 1960. On November 25 of that year, in fact, three sisters were killed by agents of the dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic.
After being stopped in the street on their way to prison to visit their husbands, they were beaten with sticks and thrown into a ravine by their executioners, who tried to put the brutal violence through an accident. It was immediately clear to public opinion that the three women had been murdered. Patria, Minerva and María Teresa Mirabal - these are their names - were, in fact, known as activists of the clandestine group Movimento 14 giugno, disliked by the government. Because of their militancy, in January 1960, they were also arrested and jailed for a few months, as the page dedicated to their history published in the Encyclopedia of Women recalls

La Fondazione Mediterraneo - with webinar, skype and videoconferencing links - wanted to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Irpinia earthquake which left an indelible mark on the development of Southern Italy and, in particular, of the internal areas.
The Museum of Peace - MAMT made available videos, documentaries and testimonies that accompanied the key moments of the event.
President Michele Capasso duly recalled that day and the tragedy he saw with his own eyes in the following days, when he visited the completely destroyed villages accompanied by fellow architects from the area. And then the solidarity actions, the hospitality in San Sebastiano al Vesuvio of the inhabitants of Conza della Campania and other countries, with a bond that lasts indissoluble over time.
"In this moment of great planetary emergency - said President Capasso - I remember two lessons in similar tragedies: the eruption of Vesuvius in 1944 and the earthquake in Irpinia in 1980. The keystone of the rebirth was not politics, even then steeped in sloppiness, inefficiency and often corruption, but the redemption of people forced to UNITE to ACT TOGETHER: “ALL UNITED WE WILL SING”, my grandfather and father said to the inhabitants of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio entirely destroyed by the lava of 1944; "PRESIDENT PERTINI, GIVE US A MESSAGE OF HOPE TO ACT ALL TOGETHER WITH GENROUS IN SOLIDARITY", said the inhabitants of the Irpinia towns - while they mourned their dead - to our beloved President of the Republic.
Here is the keystone: in tragedies we must take advantage of a feeling of unity and rare generosity in solidarity which on other occasions does not exist and which constitutes the turning point for reconstruction. The other element is SPEED: "FATEPRESTO" was the title of "IL MATTINO" the day after the earthquake. "DO IT HAPPY AND WELL" is the appeal I make to today's politicians, eliminating all divisions and particular interests and winning, for once, competence, passion and honesty. On this we will be judged !.
