The presentation of Maria Dolens at the Italian Cultural Institute in Strasbourg was a great success. Many people and numerous representatives of European institutions: among others, Ambassador Marco Marsilli and Papal Nuncio Monsignor Paolo Rudelli.

The Foundation presented its work at the Italian Cultural Institute to an audience of politicians, EU institutions and diplomats.

The event was opened by speeches from representatives of the Institute - Raffaello Barbieri - and the Foundation - the Regent, Alberto Robol - followed by the Italian Ambassador to the Council of Europe, Rovereto-born Marco Marsilli. The official introductions were followed by a screening of Franco Delli Guanti's documentary "Voci di Pace", which follows the story of the Bell of the Fallen Maria Dolens, from Don Rossaro's initial idea to the latest events of the present day.

The Strasbourg event concluded with a speech by Marcello Filotei, artistic director of the Opera Campana dei Caduti Foundation, and concert pianist Francesco Prode who, following his close collaboration with Karlheinz Stockhausen in Kuerten in 2005, has devoted all his passion and rigour to contemporary music, yet without neglecting tradition.
