The untimely death of the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, caused deep pain throughout Europe and also in the EcocNews Team who had met him personally on 20 December 2019 at the closing of the Matera 2019 cultural program. In a few hours he made us understand that a smile coincides with authority and that, as he told us, "beauty comes from freedom".

David Sassoli was a friend of culture and the European capitals of culture. During the press conference in Matera he said: "We will not vote that budget of the European Commission, we as the unanimity of the European Parliament, that budget that cuts funds for culture by 20 percent". EcocNews wants to remember the great personality of David Sassoli by publishing his speech, in English, for the Matera 2019 monitoring report "Matera is a producer of culture", his extraordinary greeting at the end of the cultural program, in italian, and some videos of that memorable day.

Hi, David.

As is now known, in 2022 there will be three European capitals of culture, Novi Sad, kaunas and Esch. The first city to inaugurate the program will be Novi Sad, on January 13 at 20.22. Kaunas will follow on January 22 and then Esch on February 22 with a ceremony that will culminate on February 26. Today focus on the Opening Ceremony of Novi Sad.

Under the Christmas tree, French cities have found the announcement which officially opens the race for European capital of culture for 2028.

Leiria was, if not the first, one of the first Portuguese cities to state - long ago on 22nd may of 2015 - the intention to present an application to European Capital of Culture 2027. It was also one of the first to, right after the first pandemic wave, reiterate this intention.
