The Nobel Peace Prize goes to the European Union

October, 12th, 2012

nobelpeace

With a very merry heart I heard the news that today, the Nobel Committee in Oslo awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union for peaceful reconciliation after World War, and for spreading democracy and human rights through Europe.

It is a great honor for all European citizens, and it’s emblematic that it happened in a very difficult juncture, with our countries torn apart by an economic crisis that seems to resurrect feelings of anti-Europeanism and temptations to take routes other than that has kept together neighboring countries over the course of 70 years.
A common track which, inter alia, has made possible the birth and growth of an organization like our Federation of European Photographers.
We should all be proud of this award, which certainly does not solve the crisis, economic but also cultural, of so many of our studies from around Europe, but finally, after many bitter pills can cause us to rejoice, though in our small, for the huge tiring work FEP made in the last 15 years, thanks to all men and women and all associations that have made possible the birth, growth and development of our Federation, and still try to give their voluntary enthusiastic contribution to gather, accept, understand each other's different cultures and sensitivity, seeking to promote the highest standards of Professional Photography and to represent the interests of all European Photographers.
Long live Photography, long live FEP, long live Europe!   Giuseppe Scozzi
