GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT EXTRACT
FROM THE STATUTE
The Gens Italica Network Association was established
in order to participate in the international network
between the Foundations and Associations which are most
representative of the communities of Italian origin in the world.
These are communities that constitute a resource of know-how,
experience, traditions and values, consolidated in a highly evolved
and competitive trans-national system, that can and must be expanded still further.
The Association intends to cooperate with the network
in order to intensify relations between the various
communities residing abroad and Italy, thereby making it possible
to establish constant relations regarding issues of mutual interest.
The cultural and socio-economic initiatives and those of solidarity
that will be realized through the network will be addressed towards
the appraisal and evaluation of the creativity, talents,
inventiveness and capacities of intuition and innovation that have
always been considered typically Italian in order to consolidate
the feeling of belonging to a great single community
of Italian origin extending over the five continents.
The Association proposes to stimulate opportunities
and to propose areas of common interest which those participating in
the network and their associates will be able to be examine,
consider and discuss so as to stimulate new social, cultural,
professional and economic wealth for all. These collaborations could also
get young generations positively involved in order to integrate
the educational and training systems of their countries of residence with the
cultural, historical, ethical and linguistic origins of their ancestors.
