Praia, Dec 9 (Inforpress) – The Department of Education, Languages, Interculture, Literature and Psychology (FORLILPSI – acronym in Italian) of the University of Florence, in Italy, promotes this thursday, an international conference of solidarity with the peoples from the Portuguese colonies.

According to an information note to which Inforpress had access, the event’s organization considers that the referred conference and the hearing of Pope Paul VI to Amílcar Cabral, Agostinho Neto and Marcelino dos Santos, in July 1970, were “crucial events” in struggle for the independence of the former Portuguese colonies and for the overthrow of the totalitarian regime in Portugal.

However, according to the note, the impossibility of holding a face-to-face event to mark the fiftieth anniversary of this historic moment, due to the pandemic, the FORLILPSI Department promotes, on the initiative of Professor Clara Silva, scientific curator, from the Executive Committee of the Fifty Years 2020 and Filinto Elísio Correia e Silva, an international webinar with the participation of scholars and testimonies.

The opening session, the note goes on, counts on the participation of the Dean of the University of Florence Studies, Luigi Dei, the president of the Lelio e Lisli Foundation, Basso Franco Ippolito, former President of the Republic of Cabo Verde Pedro Pires and the member from the Executive Committee for the 50th Anniversary 2020 Marzio Marzot.
