I have conceived, planned and
implemented this research while serving as First Counsellor at the Permanent
Mission of Italy to the United Nations.
Nevertheless it would have not been realized without the active collaboration of many people.
Special thanks goes to some young researchers that have patiently
helped me not only in retrieving documents and photos, but also
doing all the long and sometimes complex editing: Katia Mitrovich, Joel Melchiori, Marco Davi',
In particular, Andrea Sandre has provided his skills in editing the
graphical aspects of the site. Special thanks also goes to the many
people of the United Nations Secretariat that have enthusiastically provided
their help and suggestions to collect the material.
I would like to thank Lily Chau, Chief of Multimedia Resource Unit
of the DPI (Department of Public Information) for all her active help and precious suggestions to
implement the project and Veena Mauchanda, of the Photo Library
for her invaluable help in finding the right photos.
