Centre (EFC) to this important meeting on behalf of the Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze (Foundation of Florence) at large and myself. This year’s theme Fighting Poverty. Creating Opportunities is a subject of great interest that concerns not only the parts of the world traditionally considered poor but also the most economically advanced ones. The international crisis that we are passing through is helping us to develop greater awareness of the problems that are also present in our own country. Florence, a city universally known for its culture and art, is itself engaged in facing the old and new forms of poverty that are also found in our city and the surrounding area. However, fortunately, we have in Florence a long-standing tradition of solidarity that dates to the ancient confraternities, both lay and religious, committed to taking care of their neighbours. The Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze (Foundation of Florence), which originated from the old bank founded in 1829, has inherited this tradition and one of its objectives is to support socio-charitable activities. I would like to express my best wishes to the 20th Annual General Assembly (AGA) and Conference of the European Foundation Centre (EFC) for a very successful meeting.

Michele Gremigni
President of the Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze (Foundation of Florence)
