President Michele Capasso and all the members of the Fondazione Mediterraneo express their deep condolences for the death of Prof. Franco Rizzi, historical secretary general of UNIMED, founder member of the Italian Network of the Anna Lindh Foundation since 2004 and companion of many battles for dialogue, peace and cooperation between peoples.
On the occasion of the recent death of Predrag Matvejevic', co-founder of our Foundation, Prof. Franco Rizzi had greeted him with this message, taken from a text by Matvejevic, which we share here in memory of our two great Friends:
The sea and shore, the islands in the sea and the ports on the shore, the images that offer us each other change during the trips and during the landing places. The Mediterranean remains the same, but we do not.

By, dear Franco!
