About 200 speakers and presenters will dissect issues of violence and war around the globe. They include the Italian ministers for labor and education, as well as the Vatican's permanent observer to the UN. In addition to politicians, business and cultural leaders will also talk about how to achieve piece and bring hope through dialogue and friendship to conflict areas. Religious leaders, like the Custos of the Holy Land, and athletes and entertainers will also take part.
