A delegation from the United States of the World took part in the various sessions of the UNESCO International Conference "Cultural Heritage in the 21st Century" held in Naples from 27 to 29 November 2023.
On this occasion, the long-standing relations with UNESCO were emphasised: from the visits of former Directors-General Mayor and Bokova to the programmes on water and cultural heritage, coordinated by United States of the World members Maurizio Iaccarino (former UNESCO Deputy Director) and Massimo Pica Ciamarra.
Secretary-General Michele Capasso then retraced the main stages since 1987 and underlined the importance in the Constitution of the United States of the World of the articles devoted to climate change, ecological conversion and the protection of cultural heritage - tangible and intangible - in perfect harmony with UNESCO's mission and the issues addressed by the Naples conference.
Among other things, the numerous visits of André Azoulay - Advisor to the King of Morocco and father of the current UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay - to the United States of the World headquarters were recalled.
A number of delegates visited the United States of the World headquarters and the Museum of Peace and were impressed by the beauty of the site, an emotional heritage of humanity, and by the 4K videos of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Campania and other places around the world.
