2012 (EN)

Kiro Gligorov, the first President of independent Macedonia, died on 1st January 2012, aged 94. President Gligorov had been the undisputed protagonist in the process that led to the independence of Macedonia from Yugoslavia without a single shot being fired.
As a founding member of the Fondazione Mediterraneo, he had also been a protagonist in shaping the peace and stability process in the Balkans.
Michele Capasso, the President of the Fondazione Mediterraneo, remembered him as a “great friend and kindred spirit, as well as a founder member of our Institution, whom we will never forget”.
