An African proverb says:

"When elephants fight it is the grass always remain crushed."

Statistics tell us that although women constitute the largest number of victims of conflict, they are almost always excluded from diplomats and decision-making tables that lead to peace. Yet women are good negotiators on the peace tables, perfectly able to be formed at the diplomatic level, to study international relations and political science. Women should participate in peace processes because they are a party to the conflict just as much as men. And the agreements only work well if you have to squeeze the people involved.





Why Monte di Procida? This town has since remote times, a tradition of seafaring among the noblest of history not only Italian but also European.
