From August 19th to the 25th, Italy is holding the Rimini Meeting, an cultural and religious encounter with participants from across the globe.
For three decades, it has brought together economists, artists, religious leaders, even athletes to help create a forum for cultural exchange that contributes to building a more humane society. Some of the former guests have been former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and the Egyptian Patriarch of Alexandria, Cardinal Antonios Naguib.
This year, with the theme “By nature, man is relation to the infinite,” attendees will work on the challenges of culture in a time of economic crisis and values. In previous years, it brought together 800,000 people from 20 countries. They also have some 4,000 volunteers helping them in their work.
This year, ROME REPORTS will be following the meeting in both English and Spanish to bring all the details of the XXXIII edition from Rimini. It's an encounter that's organized by Communion and Liberation to generate an attitude of dialogue and understanding among different cultures.
