Italy’s Nuclear Experience in an International and Comparative Perspective
University of Trieste, November 13-15, 2014
This conference aims at analyzing the history of Italy’s nuclear energy policies during the Cold War, by placing the Italian case in a comparative perspective and highlighting the importance of the international context in shaping the country’s specific experience. It builds upon a previous conference, organized by Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A and the University of Trieste in 2012 (Nuclear Energy in Italy after the Second World War: Research, Culture, Politics – http://www.elettra.trieste.it/Ippolito/). This conference proposes to examine the ways in which international politics and economics, technological and scientific exchanges, as well as social and cultural movements, influenced Italian nuclear energy policies, both civilian and military. Furthermore, it seeks to understand how the Italian case compares to other national histories, in Western and Eastern Europe, the U.S., Latin America, Asia and Africa.

Nei giorni scorsi è venuto a mancare uno dei nostri più cari amici, Maurizio Cremasco. Maurizio è stato per molti di noi non solo un esempio di dedizione allo studio della politica internazionale, ma un compagno fraterno con cui condividere negli anni interessi, passioni, progetti, momenti di scoramento e di allegria.
Tutti noi lo ricordiamo con grande affetto per la sua profonda umanità, per la sua instancabile energia, per la curiosità e la simpatia con cui guardava alle iniziative che noi – giovani e meno giovani – gli sottoponevamo, ansiosi di ricevere un cenno di approvazione da parte di chi aveva spesso vissuto in prima persona le vicende che noi ci accingevamo a studiare con il piglio talora un po’ presuntuoso degli storici.
Nel momento dell’estremo saluto, ce lo immaginiamo di nuovo come il pilota che era stato in gioventù, ai comandi di qualche aereo supersonico in viaggio verso una destinazione sconosciuta.

“Italian Cultural Diplomacy & North-South Relations within the EU”
(Rome; June 12th – 14th, 2013)
The Symposium is hosted by President Francesco Rutelli, President of the ICD
Italy’s vast artistic and cultural heritage has assisted the country to practice Cultural Diplomacy effectively as a foreign policy tool for centuries already. In addition, the great cultural contributions of Italy in the 20th century in the fields of the arts, music, cinema, and cuisine have made Italy a cultural icon for many states worldwide. As one of the founding member states of the European Union, Italy has traditionally served the role of a key mediator in political and economic negotiations regarding EU policies and, in the context of the urgent current crises in the European Union, Italy has been called upon once again to take on this role.
The Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in Italy will present, explore, and analyze Italy’s historic and current foreign relations, and will place emphasis on the ways in which the country has directly and indirectly used Cultural Diplomacy as a tool to improve its international standing and its relations with other countries. Examples from the public sector, private sector and civil society will be reviewed, with particular emphasis on the ability of successful Cultural Diplomacy practices to ameliorate relations between Northern and Southern Europe in order to overcome the current crisis and to alleviate the long-standing Italian North-South Divide.
Based in Rome, the Conference will be hosted at a number of important political, historic, and cultural locations across the city. Featured locations during the Conference will include: the Società Dante Alighieri, Senato della Repubblica, the Ara Pacis Museum, and the Mercati di Traiano.
Participation in the Conference is open to governmental & diplomatic officials, academics, artists, journalists, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, human rights activists, historians, young professionals, and students, as well as other individuals interested in Italy, Europe, international relations, global politics, and related fields from across the world.
Speakers during the Conference will include leading dignitaries, heads of state, ministers, politicians, diplomats, academics, authors, human rights activist, journalists, and artists. These speakers will include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board. To learn more about the ICD Advisory Board, please click here.
