Ambassador for Peace Presents Peace Framework in Argentina

Spanish

Buenos Aires, Argentina—Ambassador for Peace and founder of the Peace Framework(1), Mr. Gaetano Brancati Luigi, gave a special talk about the initiative at UPF’s Peace Embassy in Buenos Aires on November 6, 2017.

Mr. Luigi, who was born in Orsomarso, a town in the southern region of Calabria in Italy, began by sharing his experiences growing up during the Second World War. In 1949, at the age of 12, he emigrated to Argentina. After living in the country for two decades, he moved to Brazil, where he currently lives, in Sao Paolo, with his family and started the Peace Framework. In his talk, he recounted how he founded the initiative, highlighted the importance of values and family, and encouraged the audience to “make their souls shine like gold.”

Mr. Luigi shares his experiences at schools and other places under the theme “Dialogues for Peace,” and since 2015, has been considered for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts for peace.

Also during the event, which was emceed by Mrs. Rosetta Conti, president of Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP)-Argentina, an affiliated organization, a documentary about the 2017 Peace Road and a video about the Peace Framework were shown.

The program concluded with the presentation of a certificate and gifts from UPF-Argentina to Mr. Luigi(2) and the reading of a poem by Ambassador for Peace Irene Giurlani.
