Mr Santucci's pictures portray the masterpieces of Greek art, which are kept in several Italian museums and the Valley of the Temples. In this valley close to Agrigento, the master architects of Great Greece built a splendid example of their power to re-create the grandeur of Athens throughout the world. Their ideals of beauty, harmony and balance have moved generations and influenced contemporary artists such as the sculptor Igor Mitoraj, who has created an art installation of Greek masterpieces, placing them close to the valley's archaeological remains.

The subject of Culture is close to my heart– it is one of the four priorities of my presidency alongside peace, sustainable development and youth. These are the pillars of the new European Renaissance we must urgently strive for. Culture is not only a driver of economic growth and social cohesion, it has been one of the drivers of European identity for many centuries.

Language competences are vital in order to foster mobility of workers and students and ultimately to improve the employability of the European workforce. Thus it is necessary to work in all possible ways on improving the language competences of Europeans.
We need good language policies and practices which can lead to successful language learning. In recent years, the EESC has drawn up three opinions for the European institutions on Europe's multilingualism strategy. Also, multilingualism policy has always been part of the EESC's political priorities.
