To build or to demolish? Rethinking 1968

If today I look at the time of 1968 and my own particular experience, I realize how so many achievements of those times have entered people’s common sense, while some values that a whole generation had discovered, albeit among many contradictions, are not very popular right now...


The lesson of Bulgaria for today's world

"When you have the courage to speak truth to power about the possible consequences of nationalism, you can convince also the people who think differently. Today’s problem is that everything is accepted without a cultural resistance." By Gabriele Nissim


Gariwo at the Plenary of IHRA

Gariwo took part in the plenary of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, held in Rome from May 28 to 31. In particular, we have been called to present our activity before the delegates of the 31 IHRA countries dealing with remembrance, within the Committee on Holocaust, genocide and crimes against humanity presided by Klaus Mueller.


The everyday Righteous who might save the world

“The Possible Good” can be meant as "I can't do more", "I can't do any better". However, it is the instance of the moment that defines possibility. To express this with more depth, it is "the call”. The Righteous responds to an urgency. By Salvatore Natoli


The Righteous and the inviolability of life

The Righteous, by their deeds, show that there is never a necessary reason to sacrifice a life, even for a lofty ideal, because otherwise, we would enter an absolute contradiction: the ideal, in fact, is to make life inviolable. By Massimo Recalcati


The Righteous show us that goodness is possible

The key issue I sought to address is that of giving some references to the youths, but the mechanism was not focused on offering them any models. We don’t have to hallow the Righteous. If we pass on the idea that the Righteous are equal to us, with faults and contradictions, we show that goodness is possible. By Gabriele Nissim 


Cultural dialogue with the world

Visions and awareness

Gariwo, the Garden of the Righteous, has been working on the concept of the Righteous for many years, with the goal of spreading the awareness of the importance of exemplary figures, those who show how to build a future of peaceful coexistence. This is important especially for the young people, who look for reference points to which they can relate the fundamental choices of life.
In recent years the interest towards the Righteous has greatly increased and this paradigm of moral resistance is essential for the development of collective consciousness on major ethical issues of our time.
We believe that the involvemnet of youth, the school operators, the academic, intellectual, artistic, media and public  and private institutionsm is crucial to maintain and strengthen the cultural orientation, which takes this direction.
