MSIC and CSIC President’s message for Merry Christmas and New Year

Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,

As the festive season draws near, I would like to send to all of you and your families my most affectionate and sincere good wishes for a Merry Christmas and New Year. May bring much-needed serenity and peace to our hearts despite the terrible events which we are facings all over the world.

Let us continue to provide a good example in our daily interactions inside the family, the workplace, the institutions: to demonstrate that loyalty to professional commitments can go hand in hand with the principles of solidarity and with openness at all times to the common good, so thanks to everyone for what you do.

It is also a moment to reflect on our year’s activities. In 2023 the Miami Scientific Italian Community celebrated its 10° anniversary! We had intense moments as a community.
