On 2nd October 1955, in Florence, Giorgio La Pira introduced passionately the issues in the conference of the Mayors of the Capital Cities. In that way, the florentine Mayor, during the period of the Cold War between USA and URSS, meant to call an invocation for the peace from his city, thanks to a signature in a Declaration of all the Mayors of the world: the cities, through their top supervisors, claimed their existences and their material, cultural and spiritual growth. The Mayors of Moscow, Washington, Rome and Beijing declared that the governments of the National States couldn’t drop their bombs any longer. In the contrasted atmosphere of that period and considering the danger that a nuclear war could cause in few seconds for centuries of history, civilization and traditions, the message of Florentine Conference was very effective: “the cities cannot die”. Today as yesterday La Pira’s motto, “connect cities to connect nations” can show the path to those who care for peace.
