GUEST - To make the honors of the event was Claudio Schermi (Chairman of the EUR Rowing Club): «I’am proud to be able to host such an important event as the European Day.

Gildo De Angelis (General Director of the Regional School Office for Lazio) in his speech remind us: «Today we are celebrating and thanking European Union because since the day of its birth it has allowed to almost all the European citizens to live without wars and in peaceful time. Now it is the time for everybody to build the future, especially to young people. The wish of our Europe is that the progress can develop more and more». Giuseppe Castronovo (President of the National Civil War Victims Association) later emphasized: «This is not an usual day, because it underlines the peace that has been going on for 70 years in our wonderful Europe. Peace is the highest value for human beings. You guys, you have to do all your best to avoid war and try that it never overpower this invaluable worth. This is the most important message that goes from Europe: to preserve peace. War can be eradicated only if the new generations will decide to erase it from the dictionary». Raffaele Chiulli (President ARISF and UIM) echoed him: «I have been very pleased to receive the invitation to this wonderful initiative as a proud citizen of Europe. For us, as sport institutions, this date is fundamental because on 9th May 1950 Europe was born together with its principles and ideals which are the same of the sport federations. Sport, in fact, wins diversity, creating union». Then Valeria Baglio (City Councillor of Rome and President of the Metropolitan Town School Commission) added: «It is wonderful to see European and Italian flags waving on this day, because the EU was certainly an opportunity of growth for Italy and for all the countries that are part of it. We must continue to look with courage and optimism towards Europe, especially for youth generation. This project, born so many years ago, must be strengthened and carried on living in unity and without war».
