We have intended to create a real crossroads of personal relationships, dialogues, demand and offer of commitment and civil planning, which aims to unite generations, different nationalities, cultures and identities, distant or not, moving from some basic considerations that guide our actions to something more complex. To “mediation and dialogue between ideals and realities”:
- “The reality most ubiquitous and important”, it is precisely the project of European integration, are “the hardest to understand and discuss”;
- “The maturation of a society and a political system (…) is also done with the understanding, assimilation, enhancement of what’s already there, not only with the choice of what to do”.
It is with this awareness that took in reference to Europe as “adventure” to search for, or to be created, not as spectators or commentators but as actors. A Europe to look at, but above all to look with gaze beyond the continental and national borders; seeing new connections, new neighbors and new ones far away; welcoming different points of view and the perceptions of those who live and work outside Europe; favoring territories of Europe and their cultural heritage.
We have decided to overcome the status quo, feeling the desire to be protagonists of a Europe, “union of minorities”, which is laboratory, of social, cultural and institutional, institutional innovation, of rethinking the “future of humanity,” ‘teaching sustainable development and responsibility’; claiming the “ability to translate the world” that Europe has already exercised for a long time.
