During a meeting between the architect Michele Capasso and the writer Predrag Matvejevic', the idea of setting up a "Workshop for the Greater Mediterranean" was born within the UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD: the aim is to promote dialogue and cooperation through concrete actions within a coalition of shared values and interests among all the countries that make up the "Greater Mediterranean": the EU countries, those that face onto the southern shore of the Mediterranean, together with those that face onto the Black Sea and the Persian Gulf.
"A great synergy of collaborations developed throughout history, broader and more productive than the wars that have occurred," say Capasso and Matvejevic'. Matvejevic' proposes to hold a conference at the beginning of 1990 on the subject of 'The Mediterranean and Central Europe'.
