Gariwo, the forest of the Righteous, in collaboration with the Association of the Righteous on Monte Stella hill,  is pleased to invite you to our yearly event made of two meetings on: 


The virtues of the Righteous 
The identity of Europe 


The conference is a first step towards the commemorations planned for 6 March, the Day set up by the EU to remember and honour the Righteous. 
Over the recent years we have honoured several Righteous people by planting trees in their memory in the Garden of the Righteous on Monte Stella hill. Now we want to start from this experience to reflect on the significance of the memories linked to a common identity. This meeting is the first date towards the celebrations of 6 March, European Day of the Righteous set up by the European Parliament in Strasbourg in past May in response to Gariwo's call.

Massimo Cacciari, philosopher and former Mayor of Venice, University Vita e Salute (Life and Health) S. Raffaele of Milano
Stefano Levi Della Torre, essayist, Milan Polytechnics
Sante Maletta, philosopher, Università della Calabria
Salvatore Natoli, philosopher, Università di Milano Bicocca
Gabriele Nissim, writer, chairman of Gariwo, the forest of the Righteous
Francesca Nodari, philosopher, director of festival "Filosofi lungo l’Oglio" (Philosophers along the river Oglio)
Francesco Tava, philosopher, Academy of Science of the Czech Republic


Other rapporteurs include the Mayor of Milan Giuliano Pisapia, the President of the City Council Basilio Rizzo, MEP Gabriele Albertini who was the first signatory of the Written Declaration to establish the European Day of the Righteous, the conselor of the Union of the Jewish Communities Giorgio Mortara and the honorary consul of the Republic of Armenia Pietro Kuciukian.

The Garden of the Righteous in Milan (Monte Stella)

against all occurrences of genocide

On January 24 2003, in an area of the Monte Stella hill park in Milan, we inaugurated the Garden of the Righteous worldwide, run by an association set up on purpose by the Milan City Hall together with the Union of the Italian Jewish Communities and the Gardens of the Righteous Worldwide Committee-Gariwo.
Over the years we have honoured exemplary figures of moral resistance from Rwanda, Latin America, Bosnia, the European countries torn by Nazi and Communist regimes, from Tunisia, Russia, and Iran.
