The celebrations for the centenary of the birth of Nino Caponnetto, Judge creator of his historic Pool or "Nonno Nino" for the thousands and thousands of children, took place in Florence and Naples (OMCOM headquarters and the Museum of Peace - MAMT) met, until the last moment of his life, in the schools of all our forgetful Italy.
"He loved Florence, he was loved by it and still is today. He loved Palermo, he was loved but not enough. He chose to be a judge. Without saying anything to his wife, he replaced Rocco Chinnici killed with the Lebanese method by Cosa Nostra. He obtained the first sentence of the Constitutional Court as Magistrate in his first position. He fought in Africa and came back full of nightmares and lined up for peace. He spoke to young people from all over Italy. He created the first anti-mafia pool with four musketeers: Falcone, Borsellino, Guarnotta, Di Lello. He loved his wife Betta for 61 years until her death. He defended the Constitution. He was the first, in the history of our country, to have over 400 mafia bosses sentenced definitively. He wept for the death of his 'children' Falcone and Borsellino. He said 'it's all over', immediately regretting it ".

To save the immense material and immaterial world heritage it is necessary to act "Beyond" and "Other": creating a real dimension outside our planet, precisely in Space, where to protect, safeguard, enhance and promote the most significant part of the assets world heritage. From artistic heritage - at risk of earthquakes, floods and climatic events - to collective immaterial memories, from the most significant documents of history to poems, from ancient knowledge to new technologies: a list nourished of things to be preserved and protected, both at an intangible and material".

On the occasion of the celebrations of the thirtieth anniversary of the birth of the Fondazione Mediterraneo  - scheduled for 2020 - the executive project and the general criteria of "The Republic of Space" will be presented in various countries.
