Interviews

Will this be the century of water conflicts?

We wanted to focus on the concept of conflict because we believe that environmental instability can lead to strong political and security instability. We are increasingly moving towards a world that will be environmentally and climatically different from the one human beings have had over the last 11,000 years, and the way in which climate change is mainly visible is through water.


Poland, "invisible Jews"?

“After the collapse of communism, for twenty years polls reported that anti-Semitism had weakened and sometimes even disappeared from the political scene. In the late 1990s, being anti-Semitic came to be acceptable, tolerated". From the interview with Konstanty Gebert by Elisabetta Rosaspina


Understanding climate change

What is climate change? And which strategies could we adopt to counter it? We asked it to Filippo Giorgi, the person in charge of the branch of Physics of the Earth of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) of Trieste, who also contributed to the proceedings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and author of a book, L’uomo e la farfalla; Sei domande su cui riflettere per comprendere i cambiamenti climatici, presenting scenarios and solutions.

Our special guest will be historian Marcello Flores, with whom we have talked about the current situation of human rights around the world, between perceptions, challenges and international organizations.


"Day of the Righteous, a milestone for an inclusive memory "

On past 26 July, the Chamber of deputies passed the draft bill for the establishment in Italy of a Day in memory of the Righteous of the humanity. The enactment is currently being examined by the Senate and we reached Senator Lucio Romano - Vicepresident of the Commission for EU Policies and member of the Commission for Constitutional Affairs - to discuss it. 


Gariwo, the gardens of the Righteous

a non-profit organization in the service of memory

Gariwo's aim is to heighten awareness and interest in the figures and the tales of the Righteous, women and men who fought and are still fighting in defense of human dignity. 
It has been active since 1999 but it was officially set up in 2001 as Gardens of the Righteous Worldwide Committee-Gariwo and in 2009 it became a non-profit organization. It is chaired by Gabriele Nissim.

In 2003 was born the Garden of the Righteous worldwide at Monte Stella Hill in Milan, which since 2008 is run by the Association for the Garden of the Righteous - formed by Gariwo, the Municipality of Milan and the Union of Italian Jewish Communities.

In 2012, after Gariwo's call, the European Parliament established the European Day of the Righteous - 6 March. In 2017 Italy has been the first country to recognize this recurrence as a civil feast, establishing the Day of the Righteous of the Humanity.
