The conference organized by the North & South association on the "Città della Scienza" took place at the Museum of Peace - MAMT.
At the center of the debate was the political-bureaucratic stalemate in which the museum pole fell over five years after the fire which, on March 4, 2013, reduced to a large part of the structure to ashes.
The topics dealt with were many, starting from the logistical recession in the reconstruction plan, to the centrality of Città della Scienza as for investments in research and innovation until, obviously, arriving at the eternal unfinished: the reindustrialisation project of Bagnoli.
They discussed with the head of Politics for Southern Italy Severino Nappi, the president of Svimez Adriano Giannola, the President of the Aerospace District Campano Luigi Carrino, the vice president of the Study Center of Liberal Thinking Vincenzo Caputo, the journalist Massimo Calenda.
The president of the Fondazione Mediterraneo Michele Capasso in his welcoming address has underlined the role of "house of peace" of the Museum and the collaboration agreements long signed with Città della Scienza, born - like the Fondazione Mediterraneo - 30 years ago. The hope - said Capasso - is to be able to actively resume as soon as IDIS returns to ordinary management that will allow it, beyond the museum and communication initiatives still lively, to resume the research activity with energy.
For the Fondazione Mediterraneo "Once upon a time the City of Science" - the initiative's title - is a tribute to the extraordinary initiative conceived by Vittorio Silvestrini and a free reflection of civil society that urges positive evolutionary processes towards a future that wishes even better than its splendid past.
