Finishing Touches of Rimini Meeting

THE MYSTERY OF MATTER
It sounds remarkable, but as humans we only know four percent of the matter that makes up the world. In fact, the discovery of the so called Higgs particle, showed just how much more still needs to be discovered. The research director of the European Center for Nuclear Research, Sergio Bertolucci, and the LHC project leader at the center, Lucio Rossi, spoke about this during the meeting. It's been nicknamed the 'God particle' since it explains how mass comes about.

The experiment took place at  CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, where a team of scientists from around the world worked together. A great discovery, which is described as just the beginning.

"Things don't end here, because this discovery has opened the door to even more questions. When it comes to the Higgs particle, it can't stand as is. There has to be a trigger. It's like going into a house and finding it has three rooms, that lead to even more homes.  It has always been like this. The dimension of the infinite and the unknown is endless.”


"Don Giussiani said, I'm going to see some Buddhist friends. So he came here and from that moment everything began that exists today.”


Wakako Saito remembers when he began working at the International Center of Nagoia. He had to organize a meeting to introduce the Italian culture, so in 1987 Father Giussani first visited Mount Koya, the holy mountain to Buddhism's Shingon Mikkyo.

It's the location where the historic meeting took place with the teacher Shodo Habukawa. Through music and smell the exhibition "Il Koiosan. The sacred mountain that Don Giussani loved,” takes visitors back to that special place for followers of Shingon Mikkyo and can relive what happened there 25 years ago, from the heart of Don Giussani.

"We are different, but we all face the same reality.”

It's an exhibition that tells of the great friendship that was created on that mountain and that even today despite the passage of time.
