  • Love clothes or not, everyone wears them. However, the apparel industry can be guilty of unethical and harmful business practices that affect many vital human and environmental issues. Thankfully, people like Simone Cipriani of the Ethical Fashion Initiative are making a difference.

    The art exhibition “Dynamism and Elasticity: Umberto Boccioni 100” will be held at the United Nations headquarters in New York from October 3rd to October 7th.
  • In a side event of the United Nations General Assembly, world leaders share their opinions and approaches to migratory and refuges flows from Africa and the Middle East into Europe.
  • I agree with Marcello Saija’s observations on Italy’s and Europe’s chaotic immigration policy, and that both potential immigrant- Europeans and native- born ones would greatly benefit by transforming Lampedusa into a modern version of Ellis Island. However, I have some major cautions as well. America’s immigration policy has never been an instance of “social engineering”...

  • We can’t become men without engaging our fellow man. That seems to be the slogan of Pope Francis’ trip to the United States, during which he will become the first pope in history to speak before Congress in Washington, D.C., before appearing at the United Nations in New York and the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.

These ingredients made for the success of the mayor of Naples Luigi De Magistris’ trip to New York. Street encounters in the Little Italies of Manhattan and the Bronx, conferences in the two major university institutes, meetings with entrepreneurs and tourism agencies – and a great human connection with mayor Bill de Blasio. At the center of it all, an atypical and unexpected Naples, the emblem of an inclusive city, which volunteers alongside New York to jumpstart an international movement towards the globalization of the rights to citizenship – a globalization of humans, not just of capital and merchandize.
  • Is Italy showing signs of turning racist? The pressure of migration brings new stresses to a country which has had, until now, a proud history of open-mindedness. Because the avalanche of newcomers is not about to be stopped, to seek a peaceful solution to the role of Libya could help, Laura Boldrini suggests.
