Facing our challenges with courage and curiosity can lead us to transform even the most pressing difficulties into opportunities. Every day at Rondine, elements of conflict are transformed into opportunities for meeting and living together.Alex Zanardi
Rondine is an extraordinary human and spiritual experience, which has opened my heart. It is born from the curiosity and the desire to know, which are the engines that drives us forward. We must free ourselves from the obligation to be afraid.Brunello Cucinelli
Remembering is also this: fighting for a better world. Rondine is a small hamlet where a dream is cultivated in which I recognize myself.
A utopia? Maybe, but beautiful.
I have great admiration for Rondine’s tireless efforts to promote peaceful coexistence and the transformation of conflicts. It reminds us that welcoming those who are different from us does not weaken our convictions and that human beings can recognize themselves in universal values.Hassan bin Talal - Prince of Jordan
Globalization has upset diplomacy and relations between states. We need to create networks in the global world, where we have the illusion that we know everything. The work that was born at Rondine is particularly important because it represents a safe deposit of peace, at the base of the Mediterranean globalization affair.Andrea Riccardi
Violence always occupies the front pages of newspapers, but we should focus on the stories of hope that come from associations like Rondine. I hope its young people will become the new generation of leaders in their own countries, helping to resolve conflicts effectively.Noa
Respecting other people’s cultures and traditions is essential for overcoming conflicts: diversity is wealth for humankind and future salvation for the planet. Rondine is cultivating this and I hope that the fruit of its work will expand all over the world.Vandana Shiva
Creativity is fundamental to building peace. Conflict is the salt of existence and, without violence, it is something good that every individual should learn to develop. To achieve this, we must use creativity. We should therefore learn to value young people and their ability to develop greater imaginations. Rondine is a fine example of creativity, confrontation, and dialogue. It is a place without violence.Johan Galtung
Today we express anger through violence. My grandfather taught me how to channel it into positive action. Peace depends on us, on each of us, and in how much we believe in it. Here at Rondine we believe.Arun Gandhi
