The 70th Anniversary of the Treaty of Paris

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 20 aprile 2021

The Treaty of Paris was signed seventy years ago, on 18 April 1951. This epoch-making document, by establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), laid down the key foundations for the greatest project of integration of peoples and nations in European history, making Europe one of the most peaceful, prosperous and stable regions of the world. The 70th Anniversary of the Treaty of Paris reminds us of the original goals of European integration and the achievements the idea of a united Europe has brought to our continent over the past seven decades. “The Paris Treaty is both legacy and mandate, and as a consequence obliges us to develop further the European integration process. Therefore, we have to ask ourselves what the “coal and steel” of our time are”, says Sandro GOZI, President of UEF and MEP. “What are the problems that we have to face today united as Europeans? This should be the first question discussed with citizens at the Conference on the Future of Europe”, underlines the UEF-President, Sandro GOZI.Today, Europeans enjoy the highest standard of living ever. However, despite all the achievements and benefits since 1951, the survival of the European project is at stake nowadays. A number of severe problems such as the current public health crisis due to the Covid-19 global pandemic as well as the subsequent difficulties that European national economies are facing, the rise of populism, Brexit, and uncontrolled migration flows have led the EU to experience the most serious crisis of legitimacy in its existence.As the decision taken in July on the Next Generation EU showed, the EU will only be truly capable of overcoming current and future crises if it is united in solidarity and in sharing the democratic values and the rule of law on which its project is based. In the Conference on the Future of Europe, the UEF strongly calls on the EU’s political representatives to find the courage that the Founding Mothers and Fathers had in 1951 and lead the EU to become more united: federal, sovereign and democratic. “The COVID pandemic has offered us an opportunity to respond to the demands of EU citizens for more solidarity, decisive action towards a Health Union, an ambitious climate policy, and a fair digital transition. The legacy of the Treaty of Paris for the present and the future of our continent is to turn this opportunity into a reality by implementing the goal set by the ECSC: a federal Europe. Let us discuss this at the Conference on the Future of Europe!” Sandro GOZI concludes.

Paris turning point: net zero targets would bring warming to 2.1degC

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 5 dicembre 2020

If all national governments meet their 2050 net zero emissions targets, warming could be as low as 2.1˚C by 2100, putting the Paris Agreement’s 1.5˚C limit within striking distance, according to new calculations by the Climate Action Tracker.However, all eyes are now on their 2030 Paris Agreement targets, all of which need to be considerably strengthened to get national emissions onto a net zero pathway.The CAT’s new modelling takes into account announcements by China, President-elect Biden’s 2050 net zero target for the US, along with other recent net zero announcements. In total, 127 countries, responsible for around 63% of emissions are considering – or have adopted, net zero targets.“Five years on, it’s clear the Paris Agreement is driving climate action,” said Prof Niklas Höhne of NewClimate Institute, a Climate Action Tracker partner organisation. “The Paris Agreement introduced the goal of global net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and now we’re seeing a wave of countries signing up to it. Can anyone really afford to miss catching this wave?”“Not only is our warming projection for government climate pledges falling to just over two degrees, a level that puts the Paris Agreement 1.5˚C target within reach, but we’re also seeing a drop in projections for real world action.”The CAT’s warming projection of its ‘current policies’ scenario has fallen from 3.6˚C in 2015 to 2.9˚C today. This drop has come from governments implementing new policies, increased use of renewable energy, a downturn in the use of coal, and lower economic growth assumptions (both prior to and because of the pandemic). However, while 2050 pledges are welcome, none of the big emitters have strengthened their 2030 Paris Agreement targets (nationally determined contributions or NDCs) in time for this year’s deadline set by the UNFCCC.

Eckersberg’s Last View of Paris on the marked

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 21 febbraio 2020

Copenhagen 25 February 4 pm, Bredgade 33 At Bruun Rasmussen’s Live Auction this spring, we turn our attention to the Danish Golden Age as Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg’s rare and masterful view from Paris, The Aqueduct in Arcueil, is up for sale.
Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg lived in Paris from 1810-13 – spending part of the time as a pupil of the famous French painter Jacques-Louis David. The three years would prove crucial to his artistic development, and he spent a good deal of his time in Paris finding new motifs in the city and its surrounding areas.In the featured work from 1812, he depicts the aqueduct in Arcueil, located 5 km south of the city. Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg portrayed the place on a sunny day with people going about their business, and the impressive edifice of the aqueduct stands out through a dramatically composed perspective. The work also reveals other characteristic elements of Eckersberg’s style, such as his focus on the light, colours and figures that all bring life to the motif.
Eckersberg only created four views while in Paris, two of which are today located at The National Gallery of Denmark and one at The David Collection.”The Aqueduct in Arcueil is the only view from Paris left on the market. And it is not only a beautiful and a very rare painting – it is absolutely essential in the understanding of his development as a painter of views from cities,” says Head of Fine Art at Bruun Rasmussen, Julie Arendse Voss.Eckersberg was one of the foremost painters of the Danish Golden Age. However, his importance to Danish art should not only be measured in the high quality of his own work. As a professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, his ideas resonated profoundly with a whole generation of painters, such as Christen Købke, J. Th. Lundbye, P.C. Skovgaard, Martinus Rørbye and many, many more. Eckersberg has since been given the title “the father of the Danish Golden Age of painting,” and today he occupies a special place in Danish art history.

On this occasion, Benjamin Smith, Air France-KLM CEO, along with Pieter Elbers, KLM President and CEO, Anne Rigail, Air France CEO, and Frederic Gagey, Air France-KLM CFO, will outline the group’s strategic priorities and its financial trajectory over the next five years.
· Restore a dynamic of sustainable profitability based on a new value-focused model for the group’s primary stakeholders: employees, customers, and shareholders.
· A plan built around four main strategic priorities: optimising the operational model, refocusing passenger revenue growth around the most profitable segments, developing initiatives on customer data, the Flying Blue loyalty program, maintenance and cargo, and pragmatically analyzing consolidation opportunities. Each of these initiatives support the group’s goal to remain a leader in the sector’s ecological transition.

This is the starting point of a strategy that will allow Air France-KLM to reinvent itself, creating value for all key stakeholders. We will optimize our operational model and increase revenues to significantly improve our operating margin. Everything we do will support our goal of remaining an industry pioneer as the airline group most committed to global environmental sustainability.”The Air France-KLM Group has several unique assets: the strength of its three brands Air France, KLM and Transavia, its two hubs in Paris – the world’s leading inbound destination – and Amsterdam – the leading European connection hub and where the airline hub-and-spoke model was first invented, its extensive and highly complementary combined network, and its powerful commercial partnerships.To fully leverage these assets, the Group must simplify and optimize its mode of operation and reposition itself to pursue the most profitable traffic.At the end of 2018 work was started to lay the foundation for future success, and the next steps will revolve around four main strategic priorities, to be rolled out at each airline.

Collection René Huyghe

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 maggio 2019

Paris. Le 5 juin prochain, la dispersion par la maison Tessier & Sarrou de la collection de l’Académicien René Huyghe sera l’occasion de redécouvrir le fabuleux destin de ce psychologue, historien et mécène.
Né en 1906 à Arras, René Huyghe (1906-1997) fait partie des personnalités dont la vie se confond avec l’Histoire. Décoré de la Légion d’honneur de l’ordre national du Mérite et de l’ordre de Léopold, ses écrits et sa pensée font de lui une figure importante de l’histoire de l’Art. Après des études de littérature et d’art à l’École du Louvre et à la Sorbonne et malgré son jeune âge de 27 ans, René Huyghe est nommé conservateur au musée du Louvre. Parallèlement, il dirige plusieurs revues artistiques telle que l’Amour de l’Art et réalise en 1936 l’un des premiers films sur l’art, Rubens, qui sera primé à la Biennale de Venise.
Pendant l’Occupation, René Huyghe s’engage dans la Résistance et investit toute son énergie dans la sauvegarde des collections nationales. Il fait transférer vers diverses propriétés de province plus de quatre mille tableaux du Louvre qui échapperont ainsi aux nazis. Un journal en partie écrit sous la dictée de René Huyghe et relatant le quotidien de certains de ces châteaux en ces périodes troublées fait d’ailleurs partie de la vacation (estimation : 6 000 – 8 000 €). La guerre finie, le Collège de France crée spécialement pour lui la chaire de Psychologie des Arts Plastiques. En 1960 René Huyghe est élu à l’Académie Française et les enchérisseurs pourront acquérir son habit d’académicien (estimation : 3 000 – 4 000 €) ainsi que son épée executée par Ossip ZADNINE (1888-1967) (estimation : 10 000 – 15 000 €) lors de la vente. Six ans plus tard, il recevra le célèbre prix Erasme, récompensant les personnes ayant participé à la diffusion de la culture européenne.
Vente aux enchères publique – Drouot – salle 4 Mercredi 5 juin – 14h exposition publique – Drouot – salle 4 Lundi 3 juin – 11h / 18h Mardi 4 juin – 11h / 18h Mercredi 5 juin – 11h / 12h contacts presse Mathilde FENNEBRESQUE
À propos de Drouot Drouot est la plus grande place de ventes aux enchères publiques au monde, implantée à Paris depuis 1852. Réunissant 63 maisons de ventes aux enchères, Drouot a accueilli en 2018 plus de 1 000 ventes qui totalisent 376M€. Chaque année, 500 000 visiteurs viennent parcourir les 17 salles de ventes réparties sur deux sites, qui exposent des objets d’art et de collection issues de 21 grandes spécialités, de l’Antiquité au Street art. Le groupe Drouot comprend plusieurs filiales, dont Auctionspress qui publie chaque semaine la Gazette Drouot ainsi que Drouot Digital, plateforme e-commerce ouverte à tous, qui réunit les activités Live (retransmission et participation aux enchères en direct) et Online (ventes dématérialisées). Interviews et images sur demande.
La collection aujourd’hui mise en vente à Drouot rend hommage à l’homme qu’était René Huyghe. Au-delà des œuvres qu’il sauvait ou qu’il analysait, il y avait les œuvres avec lesquelles il vivait. Cette vacation est donc plus qu’un musée personnel, c’est l’environnement de sa vie. Dans ce décor presque théâtral, se côtoient peintures, sculptures, manuscrits et mobilier. Cependant, malgré l’ampleur de cette collection, chaque objet y trouve sa place et raconte son histoire. On y croise une sculpture en marbre blanc, Tête d’enfant riant, provenant de l’entourage de Desiderio da SETTIGNANO (estimation : 8 000 – 10 000 €) ou encore un exceptionnel exemplaire d’une bible comprenant une peinture originale de Marc CHAGALL (1887-1985) et dédicacée à René Huyghe (estimation : 5 000 – 8 000€) attestant de sa reconnaissance par les artistes du milieu artistique.
Au-delà de sa collection, René Huyghe laisse aux générations futures près de 65 livres et de très nombreux écrits. Son autobiographie rédigée un an avant son décès résume dans son titre Une vie pour l’Art la vocation de cet érudit. (par: http://www.drouot.com)

Attracting Investments in European HealthTech Leaders at the first HTID Conference in Paris

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 14 maggio 2019

The first edition of the HealthTech Investor Days (HTID) will take place in Paris on June 24th and 25th 2019. This new forum will help 100 late-stage European HealthTech companies secure the development of new medicines and therapeutic solutions. Launched by France Biotech with the support of the European health innovation ecosystem, HTID will facilitate one-on-one meetings between European health entrepreneurs, international investors and major pharmaceutical companies. The two-day event will also feature a dozen plenary meetings on global issues in health innovation.Europe is a major player in medicine of the future thanks to the excellence of its scientific research and the growing number of innovative HealthTech companies. It is home to 3,000 biotechs and 27,000 medtechs according to European sources EuropaBio and Medtech Europe.Europe’s potential in health innovation is hampered by the structural weakness in funding for the sector which requires large capital investments and long-term financing. The development of a new drug from benchside research to the market takes ten to fifteen years on average. For medical devices, the development process usually lasts three to seven years.In the past two years, investment in HealthTech companies around the world has been rising sharply. However, Europe has benefited only partially from this trend. In 2017, the global amount of funds raised in the HealthTech sector in Europe (via venture capital and IPOs) reached € 6.2 billion (source: EY). This represents less than a third of the funds raised in the United States alone during the same period (€ 19.8 billion). In 2018, the European investment deficit increased further with a total of 5.8 billion euros funds raised (down 6.5% compared to 2017). Meanwhile, 27 billion euros (+ 36.3%) were invested in HealthTech in the United States. This means that American health innovation now attracts five times more investment than European health innovation.HTID is a response to this crucial need for financing and support by the industry. The event will take place on an annual basis to help overcome this lack of investment in the European HealthTech sector.

La lettera di Luigi Di Maio al popolo francese pubblicata da Le Monde

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 8 febbraio 2019

luigi di maioScrive Luigi Di Maio: Ieri sera ho inviato una lettera a Le Monde e a tutti i francesi, mi sembrava giusto fare un po’ di chiarezza. Ecco la traduzione in italiano: Gentile Direttore,
la ringrazio per l’opportunità di poter scrivere questa lettera sulle pagine del suo giornale in relazione al richiamo, da parte del Governo francese, dell’ambasciatore in Italia. La prima cosa che voglio ribadire con forza è che l’Italia e il Governo italiano considerano la Francia un Paese amico e il suo Popolo, con la sua tradizione democratica millenaria, un punto di riferimento nelle conquiste dei dei diritti civili e sociali a livello mondiale.
Da Ministro dello Sviluppo economico, del Lavoro e delle Politiche sociali, ho sempre guardato alla Francia e al suo sistema di Welfare State come la stella polare dei diritti sociali europei. Non mi meraviglia che il popolo francese stia mostrando insofferenze notevoli rispetto allo smantellamento di alcuni di questi diritti. E questo non riguarda solo l’attuale Governo.
Deve sapere, direttore, che nel 2016 mi trovavo in visita all’Assemblea Nazionale francese come vicepresidente della Camera, quando iniziarono le grandi proteste di piazza contro la riforma del lavoro di Hollande che poi è stata portata avanti in maniera ancora più precarizzante dal Presidente Macron.Ricette ultra-liberiste dei partiti di destra quanto quelli di sinistra, che hanno precarizzato la vita dei cittadini e ne hanno ridotto fortemente la capacità di acquisto. Mi ha colpito molto che tra le rivendicazioni nel manifesto dei gilet gialli ci fossero temi che ormai superano la destra e la sinistra e che tengono al centro il cittadino e le sue esigenze, con un atteggiamento post ideologico. E’ per questo che ho voluto incontrare esponenti dei gilet gialli e della lista Ric, perché credo che il futuro della politica europea non sia più nei partiti di destra e di sinistra, sopratutto diffidando da quei partiti di destra e di sinistra in Europa che dicono di essere “nuovi” ma hanno una tradizione in alcuni casi addirittura famigliare.In Italia guardiamo con molta attenzione e rispetto a quello che sta succedendo in Francia e cerchiamo come Governo italiano di prendere ogni giorno iniziative volte a ricostituire i diritti dei cittadini, invertendo la rotta rispetto al passato che basava l’azione politica sul togliere diritti e possibilità economiche ai più deboli per darli ai grandi potentati economici.
Questo perché vogliamo che la qualità della vita sia migliore per i cittadini. Riteniamo, infatti, che dove c’è equilibrio, i conflitti possano diminuire.
Nell’ultima legge di bilancio abbiamo deciso di alzare le tasse a concessionari di gioco d’azzardo, banche, compagnie assicurative, multinazionali che estraggono petrolio nel nostro mare, tagliare mezzo miliardo di spese militari, per finanziare misure che permetteranno ad un milione di italiani di andare prima in pensione e a 5 milioni di italiani di percepire un reddito minimo, e ci permetteranno di finanziare un miliardo di investimenti nelle startup innovative.Abbiamo ricalibrato gli incentivi alle imprese sulla dimensione di quelle piccole e medie che nonostante le grandi difficoltà ci hanno fatto diventare la seconda forza manifatturiera di Europa e le abbiamo escluse dalla morsa infernale di alcune direttive europee come quella Bolkestein. Qui, caro Direttore, il gilet giallo lo indossano i pensionati d’oro a cui abbiamo tagliato la pensione o il vitalizio da privilegiati.
Guardiamo al vostro popolo come un punto di riferimento e non come un nemico.
E nonostante le divergenze politiche e di visione economica tra il Governo Francese e quello Italiano, credo questo non debba intaccare lo storico rapporto di amicizia tra i nostri due popoli e i nostri due stati. Per questo, come rappresentante del Governo, voglio ribadire la massima collaborazione del nostro esecutivo, per le questioni che più ci stanno a cuore come Paese e come membro fondatore dell’Unione Europea.

Ferdinand Desnos: Un naÏf spirituel

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 gennaio 2019

Paris Du 17 janvier au 8 février, Drouot propose au public une exposition consacrée à l’artiste Ferdinand DESNOS (1901-1958). Près de quatre-ving huiles et dessins prêtés par des collectionneurs constituent la première grande rétrospective de l’artiste naïf à Paris. Sur une proposition de Natacha Carron Vullierme, qui en assure le commissariat, l’exposition offre un panorama complet de l’œuvre du peintre.Cette exposition, à caractère non commercial, s’inscrit dans la dynamique que déploie Drouot pour faire de l’hôtel des ventes un lieu de culture à part entière, à précisé Maître Alexandre Giquello, Président de Drouot Patrimoine.Ferdinand Desnos naît en 1901 à Pontlevoy de parents et grands-parents boulangers. Bien que de santé fragile, Ferdinand vit une enfance paysanne heureuse en Touraine, paysages qui marquent profondément l’artiste. Avant l’âge de 10 ans, il fabrique ses propres couleurs et dessine avec frénésie, encouragé par sa mère. Dès 1919, ses premières huiles sur toile – des scènes et paysages de campagne – sont empreintes de sentiments mélancoliques que lui inspire la lumière tourangelle.

Paris Patrick Caput Vendredi 14 décembre Hôtel Drouot 9, rue Drouot, la maison Binoche et Giquello présentera, lors d’une vente dédiée aux arts d’Afrique et d’Océanie, un rare byéri fang. Le caractère exceptionnel de cette statue reliquaire réside dans le choix d’un buste, qui plus est féminin, son épaisse patine témoignant de son ancienneté. Cette statue votive utilisée au début du XIXe siècle pour le culte des ancêtres, importée en France au cours du XXe siècle par un administrateur colonial, est estimée entre 1 et 1,5M€. Elle compte parmi la vingtaine de bustes fang existants, dont une faible proportion de sculptures féminines. Soixante pièces seront présentées dans cette vente pour une estimation globale comprise entre 3 et 3,5M€.

La place des Abbesses.jpgParis Le 23 novembre, la maison Tessier Sarrou dispersera la collection de Pierre Levasseur. Connu pour son génie aéronautique, cette vente illustre son amour de l’art et sa passion de la collection. C’est donc avec enthousiasme que 14 toiles inédites de Maurice UTRILLO (1883-1955) seront présentées aux enchères, après avoir été conservées depuis leur création et jusqu’à ce jour au sein de la même famille. Ces peintures jalousement gardées pendant près de 100 ans accompagnent une correspondance entre Utrillo, Suzanne Valadon, André Utter et Pierre Levasseur. Un ensemble de mobilier et objets d’art complète cette dispersion dont l’estimation avoisine 1,5 million d’euros. Découvrir l’intérieur d’un collectionneur est un moment rare, attendu et espéré par le commissaire-priseur et ses collaborateurs. Ainsi, avons-nous été comblés et émus de trouver disposé harmonieusement en bonne place sur les murs des chambres et au salon, cet ensemble de tableaux d’un Maître singulier qui a marqué l’histoire de l’art au début du vingtième siècle, précise l’expert de la vente, Marc Ottavi.
