“Emergenza Libia” is a project born from the desire to describe -from different edges, views and professional understandings – what has been happening through the last five years in this North African country so closely linked to Italy.
A decade of civil conflicts, ethnic and political divisions, chaos, power vacuums and mass migration, culminating in the war for the liberation of Sirte, the third capital of the Islamic State and the split of Libya in East-West blocks. This division representing internal old and new wounds, regional and international conflicts, that today more than ever are marking the destiny of peoples and nations which preserve the ancient privilege of overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
The book includes essays by Carlo Amenta, Martin Baldwin-Edwards, Salvatore Rino Coluccello, Paolo Di Betta, Gery Ferrara, Mahmoud Gebril, Roland Marchal, Alessandro Politi, Marco Ricci, Alessandro Minuto Rizzo, Francesco Semprini, Giulio Maria Terzi di Sant’Agata, Mattia Toaldo, Arturo Varvelli.
Moderator of the event is Professor Filippo di Robilant.
Will intervene Francesco Semprini, correspondent for La Stampa from New York, the Minister Giuseppe Perrone, Central Director for the Mediterranean and the Middle East and the Ambassador Alessandro Minuto Rizzo President of the NATO Defense College Foundation.
