Frascati (Italy): Andrea Riccardi presented with the "Civis Tusculanus" award for commitment to peace and détente between peoples

 
printable version

 
On September 8, 1943, the town of Frascati, overlooking Rome, was the target of a terrible aerial bombardment.

The date is now marked by a Memorial Day, on which Frascati confers the distinction of "Civis Tusculanus" to figures who have stood out for their defence of peace and their commitment to concord between peoples.

The award ceremony took place yesterday, and Andrea Riccardi, founder of the Community of Sant'Egidio, received the award in recognition of his commitment to peace and his engagement in calming tensions between peoples, "for the overcoming of racial hatred in many parts of the world, above all in the tormented outskirts of the poorest lands".
