2021 (EN)

On the eve of the G20 meeting to be held in Rome on 30 and 31 October 2021, the majority of the States participating in the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD project - proposed in 1990 by the Fondazione Mediterraneo based on an idea of Gustavo Rol - ratified that the symbol of the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD will be the TOTEM OF PEACE by the sculptor Mario Molinari from 28 October 2021.
The symbol represents the red sail of the Totem for Peace that configures the stern of a ship made up of the multilingual translation of "The United States of the World".
The ceremony was held at the headquarters of the Fondazione Mediterraneo - Maison de la Paix in the presence of ministers and ambassadors representing the various member countries. The latest member was the State of Kyrgyzstan.
President Michele Capasso, visibly moved by the realization of a dream born 30 years ago, made the choice official in the presence - among others - of the Ambassador of Tunisia in Italy Moez Sinaoui, the Ambassador of Kyrgyzstan in Italy Taalay Bazarbaev, the Tunisian Minister and former Director General of ALECSO Mohamed-El Aziz Ben Achour, the heads of the Forum de l'Académie Politique and the Konrad Adenauer Siftung, the Deputy Mayor of Naples Mia Filippone and representatives of the various countries.
