On this topic, the CEI resolved to request the Italian Government - for the parts of the building owned by the State Property Agency - to define the commitments undertaken in Marseille on 6 July 2000 and ratified by Law 111/2001. In detail:

  • The granting of additional buildings to the Palazzo Pierce to complete the museum system, to guarantee the safety and uniqueness of the access staircase from Via Depretis 130 and for the completion of the "Italy to be discovered" program.
  • The reunification of existing concessions with new ones.
  • The application of the recognition fee or of the gratuity.
  • The application of the equivalent duration to the portions of property granted by the Campania Region for the parts of its competence (99years).

On this occasion an Appeal was drawn up which, in addition to having been unanimously signed by all those present, will be proposed in various international forums and, in particular, in the museum's partner countries.
The CEI has appointed the legal representative of the implementing body - the Fondazione Mediterraneo - to send a copy of the appeal to the ministers Franceschini and Gualtieri.

Present in Tunis, president Michele Capasso attended the inauguration speech of newly elected president of Tunisia, Kais Saied.
"I appreciated the reference to competence and not to political affiliation - says Capasso - as a criterion for the choice of the new Ministers and, in general, of those responsible for public affairs".
Kais Saied was elected president of the Republic of Tunisia with 72.7% of preferences on September 13th. A few minutes after the seats were closed and the first exit polls were released, thousands of people went down the streets of Tunis, which spilled out onto the Bourguiba Avenue between carousels of cars and flags.

A trans-generational and cultural gathering that reminded many of the participants of the climate of the jasmine revolution.
«Today you gave a lesson to the whole world. It is a revolution in a new form: a revolution within the constitutional framework, legitimized by the constitution, "said Saied in his first statement as president, adding that Tunisia" has opened a new page in its history "in which" relations within the country must be based on trust and responsibility ".
