Passing of our friend Philippe Daverio

Daverio Bilbao

We were very sad to receive the news of the death of our friend Philippe DAVERIO on September 2nd in Milan.

Philippe was a former journalist at RAI and a renowned academic and art specialist. In 2011, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy, he founded "Save Italy", an opinion movement that aims to raise public awareness about the possibility of civil society involvement for a better management of Italy's territory and its cultural and artistic wealth.

A convinced European, Philippe Daverio was also a candidate for the European elections on the + Europa list. In the meantime, he spoke at our European forum in February 2019 in Bilbao and at our Council in April 2019 in Ljubljana. Our condolences to his family and friends.
