The climax of the celebrations was on 11th of November, with “History and future,” an event organized at the St. Gaetano centre, in the presence of the President of the Republic of Italy, Mr. Giorgio Napolitano, who met volunteers from Doctors with Africa CUAMM.

Through his presence, President Napolitano wished to publicly acknowledge what Doctors with Africa CUAMM has done and continues to do in and with Africa, on a day-to-day basis, through volunteers operating in the field or providing help from Italy. On the very same day, Mons. Luigi Mazzucato, director of Doctors with Africa CUAMM from 1955 to 2008. received an Honorary Degree in “Institutions and Politics of Human Rights and Peace”, from the University of Padova.
