The president of the Mediterranean Foundation, prof. Michele Capasso, like everybody, has sent a message for the new year 2021 entitled “All united we will sing”.
In the message, President Capasso retraced the example of his father Raffaele - for 35 years mayor of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio and architect of the reconstruction after the eruption of Vesuvius in 1944 that destroyed the town - underlining similarities with the current difficult moment due to the worldwide pandemic of the Coronavisus which requires everyone and without distinction to work UNITED with the spirit of MANUFACTURERS for the COMMON GOOD.
"The culture of care - concluded President Capasso - constitutes the moral obligation these days: CARE for creation, CARE for the person, CARE for social relations, CARE for the other, CARE for the COMMON GOOD".

The creation of the International Mediterranean Day was announced at the end of 2020 to be celebrated on the 28 November, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the Barcelona Process, which laid the foundations of the UfM. On this occasion, 4 logos of the day were proposed which will be submitted to the vote of the main actors.
President Michele Capasso - who with the Fondazione Mediterraneo has been one of the protagonists of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership since 1990 and one of the main players in the Barcelona Process - expressed his satisfaction with this decision, recalling that the first proposal was approved at "II FORUM CIVILE EUROMED "held in Naples in December 1997. Similarly, Capasso expressed his appreciation for the proposed logos, communicating to the UfM the choice of the Mediterranean Foundation and the Anna Lindh Federation of the first logo depicting the olive branch, recalling a phrase by Braudel that said "the Mediterranean exists where the olive tree grows".

From the wounds of the pandemic to a new model of quality of life. On the occasion of the 31st edition of the survey on the Italian provinces, Il Sole 24 Ore proposed a laboratory of ideas on relaunching the territories after the health emergency. “The future of cities beyond the pandemic” is the theme around which public administrators and experts in urban innovation and social policies met. The leitmotif of the debate was the new priority agenda generated by the Covid-19 crisis: health and culture, digitalization and big data, sustainable mobility and smart working, rethinking of urban centers and proximity services in neighborhoods.
President Michele Capasso participated in the webinar event highlighting "how an interconnected world requires coordinated management, united visions but respectful of diversity. Science continues to decipher ever new forms of bonds and connections - outside, in the Fourth Environment - and also inside our planet. The human adventure, that of homo sapiens, took off a few tens of thousands of years ago with the so-called "cognitive revolution" which gave rise to collaborations and common phenomena.

Today we know - said Capasso - that all living beings have deep ties, both among themselves and with other forms of coexistent life. Plants are interconnected, messages and warnings are sent. So the birds in their flocks, the fish in their schools. Matter itself in its deep structure, the same forces and energy fields that sustain it ignore the barriers between organic and inorganic. These bonds are not exclusive to categories, systems or groups: they dialogue, condition, intertwine. At the basis of the creativity of Sapiens there is not self-centeredness, but collaboration: the future of humanity will be played on this"
