Processions, holy weeks, patron saint festivals, and the like, have been emptied of their meaning and survive only as spectacles and attractions for tourists. Many academics have denounced this prejudice, but it appears to be particularly resilient and continues to resurface under different forms.

When on 28 October 1922, the Fascists seized power following the March on Rome, most Italian liberals thought it to be simply a theatrical change of regime, and that soon enough the experience of government would normalise the political movement founded by Benito Mussolini.

The European Union has proven itself to be particularly weak is its poor ability to open up a reflection on the causes of the mass exoduses, and it seems incapable of elaborating its own policies on Syria, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Libya – which today remains a crucial migration intersection ruled by anarchy after the war that led to the deposition of Qaddafi.

Generation E is a pan-European project that aims to collect data to help us understand the phenomenon of the migration of young people from Southern Europe who leave, at least temporarily, their countries. It is the description of a generation, or at least of a part of it, beyond the false myths and clichés that label these young women and men, beyond the ‘lost youth’ stereotype.

As you are reading this article, airplanes carrying Caravaggios and Botticellis are flying high over your head: never has the definition of ‘movable artistic heritage’ been taken more literally than today, when an estimated 15,000 archaeological pieces and 10,000 works of art from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century are moved around every year in Italy alone. But to where does all this plenty move?

The flow of refugees applying for international protection cannot be regulated because this would entail a violation of the principle of non-refoulement as established by the Geneva conference on refugees, adopted by states and inherent in European law. This presents a problem for all the destination countries of asylum seekers: the problem of flow ‘control’.

For about twenty years, starting from 1494, Manutius played a key role in the communication and technological revolution that dominated the Renaissance and had a lasting and profound effect on Europe, even to this day. He transformed the printed book into the most effective tool for the accumulation and dissemination of human knowledge of the last five centuries.

Why does the workers’ movement of the European left-wing, which for many years was at the vanguard of political struggle, now look with such attention to the difficult and often contradictory steps that we Latin Americans take in our quest for social progress and for a more dignified life and greater solidarity for our people?

The specific value of cultural assets lies in their being bearers of culture and, as such, fundamental vehicles for the building of the cultural identity of individuals, nations and humanity as a whole. This is why we tend to be very happy when museums become popular: it is not because it means that we are selling many tickets, but because we assume that the visit will lead to an improvement in the value of the human person who is experiencing it. And this is exactly the reason why we take school classes to museums and not to stadiums.

If culture is thought of as the foundation of a society, then it can be the motor for the capacity of a society to develop. The Goethe Institute keeps closely in touch with cultural and artistic developments in Germany; and given its place at the geographical heart of Europe, it can contribute to the development of a European society capable of dialogue.
