The Fondazione Mediterraneo decided to celebrate "International Women's Day" by dedicating it to Ukrainian women: innocent victims of a fratricidal war in the heart of Europe.
Throughout the day, the Museum's 107 large videowalls projected images of Ukrainian women whose dignity and lives had been violated.
So as not to forget what appears to be a tragedy of immense proportions.
President Capasso was moved and addressed the women present and those connected to the webinar:
"We want to dedicate this 8 March 2022 to the Ukrainian women who resist, who heal, who flee, who fight for life, who cry, who stand against Putin's war, who hope for Europe, who ask us to help them.
The images of Ukrainian women victims of the war flash before our eyes, now unaccustomed to this spectacle in the heart of Europe: thousands dead, hundreds of thousands displaced or exiled, cities and villages in ruins, bridges and buildings destroyed by cannon fire, monuments of culture or faith desecrated, violence and humiliation of all kinds, countless lives of simple people mutilated or torn apart forever. Human suffering cannot be summed up. Can one go beyond it?
This question is addressed at the same time to Russia, which has invaded Ukraine, but also to those who have done so little to stop this war in the heart of Europe.
What can we say, in the face of such a tragedy, of a UN unsuited to the changes in our world with bureaucratic rules and vetoes that prevent real peace action; of a NATO that has remained a prisoner of archaic defence models; of a European Union that cares so little for the rest of Europe except for economic needs and following the law of markets and merchants; of a Russia that is trying to take over from the former Soviet Union using force and violence, of all these games barely disguised by the great powers and their interests? Agreements constantly betrayed, pacts mocked and negotiators made ridiculous, international resolutions ignored, humanitarian convoys themselves becoming targets of deadly rage. Russia has provoked a war in the heart of Europe, against a 'brother-country': Ukraine. A European war that is being waged according to archaic and despotic criteria contrary to any logic. A morally illegitimate war with no legal basis. Above all, it is a war fought by causing humiliation, suffering, genocide, violations, planned and announced massacres, the victims of which are mainly women and children.
On this day we want to pay tribute to the women of Ukraine, to whom our thoughts and support go.
Let us once again throw a bottle into our sea with a common appeal to what is left of consciences on our shores".
