A Slovene musician Gianni Rijavec and his adherents formed the international foundation “The White Dove” in 2002. Its principal goal is to spread the idea of peace in the world!
Dr. Prešeren's great ideas expressed in his “Zdravljica” inspired Gianni and he wrote the music and refrain for the song The White Dove. The song is made up of two verses of Prešeren's “Zdravljica” and Gianni's refrain. It is a clear thought, a basic guidance of the foundation - to spread the idea of peace in the world!
The activities of the foundation are bigger or smaller projects which spread the idea of peace.
The foundation of the project is the song “The White Dove” so the activities are mainly musical projects (songs, records, concerts). The purpose is to spread the activities also on other spheres of social life (the second art – artistic, drama …, sport, politics, economy, fashion …). The idea of peace must begin to live on all spheres of social life. It is necessary to achieve that each person finds his “inner peace” which is the condition for peace among us!
The shield sign of the foundation is the stylized white dove, the work of the artist Ivo Kisovec.
The foundation is run by:
the founder: Gianni Rijavec
the board of directors:
• Gianni Rijavec – a president
