The Fondazione Mediterraneo, established in 1990 to promote dialogue and cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean area, was the protagonist of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership, when few spoke or were interested in the issue. In particular, he participated and organized the Barcelona 1995 events (Ministerial Conference and Euromed Civil Forum) which launched the Euro-Mediterranean partnership under the name of the “Barcelona Process”.
The First Euromed Civil Forum took place in Barcelona in the same place and immediately after the end of the First Ministerial Conference which kicked off the Barcelona Process, also known as the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, i.e. the common European strategy for the Mediterranean region. This process was initiated by the European Union, which at the time had 15 member states, and by 12 other states in the region during the Barcelona conference which met on 27 November and 28 November 1995 at the Hotel Juan Carlos I. The United States attended the conference as observers. Subsequently, after the enlargement of the European Union in 2004, Malta and Cyprus which participated in the process as third countries, became part of the process as members of the European Union.
The First Euromed Civil Forum was co-organized by the Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Institut Català de la Mediterrània and more than 1,500 representatives of Euro-Mediterranean countries participated in that event.

The Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Anna Lindh Italia Federation participated - with their own representatives - in the sixth edition of "ROME MED - MEDITERRANEAN DIALOGUES": the annual high-level initiative promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and by ISPI ( Italian Institute of International Political Studies) with the aim of rethinking traditional approaches to the territory by integrating the analysis of current challenges with new ideas and suggestions and to draw up a new “positive agenda”, addressing shared challenges both at regional and international level.
This year's edition was essentially dedicated to the effects of the pandemic on the Mediterranean region.
Launched in 2015, MED has quickly become the global hub for high-level dialogues on the broader Mediterranean, involving prominent leaders from Mediterranean governments, business, civil society, media and academia. Past editions have brought together more than 1,000 international leaders, including Heads of State and Ministers (among them, the King of Jordan, the Iraqi and Lebanese President, the Foreign Ministers of Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, United Arab Emirates United States, United States Secretary of State, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and Envoy for Syria, as well as EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and First Vice-President of the Commission and many others).

The Italian Institute of International Political Studies (ISPI) is an independent, non-partisan think tank that provides cutting-edge research and workable policy options to government officials, business executives, and the general public who want to better understand international issues. Founded in 1934 in Milan, ISPI has always adopted a pragmatic approach in the analysis of geographical areas and topics of particular interest for Italy and Europe. ISPI is the only Italian Institute - and among the few in Europe - that combines policy-oriented research with an equally significant commitment to education and training, conferences and advice on international trends.
In particular, the Institute is the main Italian forum for debate on international affairs and promotes international events including annual conferences (such as Rome MED), bilateral dialogue forums with France, Germany, Switzerland and Russia and closed-door meetings for an audience selected. In 80 years ISPI has built a vast network of think tanks in Europe and around the world and since 2014 it has been the think tank that represents Italy in the Think20 (T20), an advisory body of the G20.

The four pillars
Rome MED is based on four pillars: shared prosperity, shared security, migration and civil society and culture. Debates on these issues aim to complement analyzes of current challenges with new ideas and suggestions to increase economic cooperation, overcome regional rivalries and conflicts and ensure that adequate incentives for sustainable development are set in motion
