It is a major challenge but at the same time it is a unique opportunity for the Arab Maghreb and for Europe. With the support of politicians, male and female personalities from the world of culture and science, who have been collaborating with the Fondazione Mediterraneo for more than twenty years. Naples will become a centre and a space for dialogue and Euro-Maghreb cooperation”.

Pittella commented on the noteworthy book in the following manner: “Backing Euro-Mediterranean future both necessary and essential for both shores despite being difficult, critical and impervious.
Many mistakes have been made including by we Europeans. Numerous difficulties continue to persist notwithstanding the fact that the Arab Spring has laid down the political and social conditions for strengthening cooperation in every field and for launching a Euro-Mediterranean community policy and in relation to which the Arab Maghreb constitutes and fundamental pillar.
We need to believe in this and fight for its with all our might as people like President Michele Capasso have been doing in a determined and coherent manner for years”.
