Inspired by the need to foster the promotion of excellence in southern Italy, the SEcoM Committee ( intends to bring together a qualified representation, in the scientific and cultural field, in order to work an effective stimulus to the central and European authorities on issues of economic development of the area commonly identified as 'South of Italy'.

"The Committee - says Chairman and founder Dr. Paolo Rivelli - aims to contribute to a comprehensive analysis, with a 'glocal' vision of resources, aimed at giving back to the local realities of southern Italy a central role at a global level, through the promotion of all initiatives to raise awareness, spread and safeguard the excellence of southern Italy that can contribute in a concrete and sensitive to the development of the regions of the southern-central side of the country. The Mezzogiorno must catch up with its development, it must look far ahead if it wants to be a candidate for the pivot of the Mediterranean basin, however, in doing so it cannot give up its rich past in terms of culture and heritage, indeed from this experience it draws the driving force".

The territorial observation actions promoted by the Committee will be aimed at a strategic repositioning of the South, in Italian and European policies, through the interception of areas of development that represent a driving force for the economy and development of the South through a fair, economic and environmentally friendly growth.

"A tradition that stimulates innovation therefore - concludes Dr. Rivelli - It is no coincidence that we have chosen an image that most represents us. In fact our logo is represented by 'Helios as personification of the South', a painting of 1765 by Anton Raphael Mengs, exponent of neoclassicism. A clear reference to Greek mythology, but with Helios in the act of striking a fiery arrow to a distant target.

The Committee, chaired by Paolo Rivelli, is also composed of Valentina Dell'Aira, delegate for external relations and institutional communication, and Ugo Cavaterra, delegate for the "Culture and Traditions" sector.
