BolognaThe City of Bologna is proud to host the delegates of the 2008 General Conference of the European Coalition of Cities against Racism.
On June 3rd 1257 , the People’s Council of Bologna decreed that those who lived in the territory of the diocese had to be considered all free men, with no exception. So it happened that 5.855 serfs reacquired their dignity of free citizens.
Social inclusion, human rights and their safeguard are thus values which are part of the identity of our community, witness of an ancient history of welcome, of interaction between different cultures and origins, of evolution of rights and emancipation.
The city administration will follow with special attention this Conference that for three days will allow us to give the themes of Rights and Living together the centrality they deserve.
Enjoy the conference.

Sergio Cofferati
Mayor of Bologna
