Security and Defence Days 2022

By Fondazione de Gasperi

In keeping with De Gasperian inspiration which is the lifeblood of our Foundation from an ideal point of view, we wanted to direct the reflection of the «Security and Defence Days», organised in partnership with the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, along two essential lines of Alcide De Gasperi’s thought and work: Europeanism and Atlanticism. These two lines are, in turn, part of an essential framework for Italy represented by multilateralism, which since the Second World War has marked the very essence of the positioning and posture of our country on the international scene, within the broader framework of the United Nations.
