December  2020


2020 was a very hard year, a real challenge. We had to postpone our Conference and the Summer School, as well. Christmas is incoming but "war is not over": other months of struggle, I'm afraid, are still waiting for us. However, I hope 2021 will be a year of renaissance, so that we can meet together in Gaeta next June as well as we can see once more the cloisters of the Certosa di Pontignano full of our young people and colleagues. So, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful 2021.
