The present third issue of the magazine is published under the frame work of ENPI Med Basin project MARAKANDA, Network of Mediterranean markets. This project, promoted by the Municipality of Florence with a consortium of different cities and actors allows us a reflection on the different identities of several Mediterranean territories: some relevant stakeholders in the fields of diplomacy, public institutions and culture are proposed to give vivid impressions of these fragile and uncertain times. Overwhelmed by the financial crisis, personal opinions come to rapid changes and individuating our core priorities becomes difficult. The blogger Alex Lickerman writes: “The solutions our political leaders seek for our most pressing problems are largely determined by which are most popular. And which are most popular is largely determined by our population’s ability to understand the problems for which the solutions are being proposed. This, as far as I can tell, is dismal. This means the most popular solutions are also the solutions most likely to be wrong.” Well, solutions, as well as answers, are often wrong. Fortunately, we don’t have to give answers. We only try to give some impressions, to pose some questions.
