Second edition of Mediterraneo Downtown in Prato

From the 3rd to the 6th of May, the second edition of the festival Mediterraneo Downtown was held in Prato, Tuscany.

It was, once again, an eventful and passionating, couple of days : conferences, music, books, outdoor events …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year, the Mediterraneo Downtown Peace Prize was won by Anne, Pierre and Benoit from the French association from Briançon “TousMigrants” which, among other things, helps migrants trying to cross the border through the dangerous mountain-neck “de l’Échelle”.

We also held a conference about “The courage of women : mothers looking for the truth” with Halima Aissa from ARDEPTE association, which fights with mothers, wives, sisters of tunisians who disappeared into the Mediterranean or vanished after their departure.

Thanks to COSPE Onlus, Tuscany Region, the city of Prato, Amnesty International Italia, Libera and Legambiente for this event.
