Musical performances are intervalled by short interventions by political personalities that, on an important occasion like this on May 25, highlight the importance of historical relations between Italy and Africa. We recommend the messages from the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Italian Cooperation Luigi Di Maio, Vice Minister Emanuela C.
