After visiting places in the historic centre of Naples, delegates to the UNESCO International Conference "Cultural Heritage in the 21st Century" were welcomed to the United States of the World and the Museum of Peace by Secretary-General Prof. Michele Capasso and other members of the institution.
On this occasion, the long-standing relations with UNESCO were emphasised: from the visits of former Director Generals Mayor and Bokova to the programmes on water and cultural heritage, coordinated by United States of the World members Maurizio Iaccarino (former UNESCO Deputy Director) and Massimo Pica Ciamarra.
Secretary General Michele Capasso then retraced the main stages since 1987 and underlined the importance in the Constitution of the United States of the World of the articles devoted to climate change, ecological conversion and the protection of cultural heritage - tangible and intangible - in perfect harmony with UNESCO's mission and the issues addressed by the Naples conference.
Among other things, the numerous visits of André Azoulay - Advisor to the King of Morocco and father of the current UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay - to the United States of the World were recalled.
The delegates were impressed by the beauty of the site, a World Heritage Site, and by the 4K videos of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Campania and other places around the world.
