The Secretary-General Michele Capasso, the Council of Ambassadors, the Board of Governors with Pia Molinari and Jacopo Molinari, the International Committee, the delegates of the autonomous sections "Fondazione Mediterraneo", "Accademia del Mediterraneo" and "Almamed" and the heads of the branch offices express their deep condolences for the passing of Abdulaziz-Al-Babtain, a founding member of the United States of the World.
A leading figure in Kuwaiti culture, he was a highly regarded poet who made a fundamental contribution to Arab culture by writing numerous poetry collections and serving as head of the Al-Babtain Group for Poetic Creativity.
Secretary General Michele Capasso remembers his fraternal friend, his visits to the Naples headquarters on the occasion of the "Mediterranean Award" attributed to him, his poetry meetings in Kuwait City with Jacopo Molinari, and the opening of a special section on Arab poetry in the Library of the Museum of Peace in Naples, the result of an agreement between the Al Babtain Foundation and the Fondazione Mediterraneo.
An official communiqué expressed sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of the deceased.
