In addition to the people in charge of the Community of Sant'Egidio, the presentation was also attended by Bishop Johan Bonny, commissioner of the city for culture and religion Philip Heylen , Aharon Malinsky for the Jewish community and Hicham El Mzairh for the Muslim community.

The event aims to reaffirm strongly that the spirit of Assisi is more necessary than ever in today's world, which has a valuable contribution to make in the memory of the centenary of the First World War, which has marked this part of Europe so much.

Also present were the ambassadors, bishops and pastors of various Christian Churches, leaders of the Jewish and Muslim communities of the city and supporters. The event was met with great sympathy and willingness to cooperate.
