Amongst the Italians: Dario Fo and Rita Levi Montalcini. Amongst the hundreds of international names, we report, amongst others, former Prime Ministers such as:  Inder Kumar Gujral, India, Moustapha Niasse, Senegal, Michel Rocard, France and Majco Pandeli, Albania and former Ministers and Government representatives such as Robert Badinter, Minister of Justice and President of the Supreme Court – France, Bronislav Geremek, Minister of Foreign Affairs – Poland, Catherine Trautmann, Minister of Culture – France, Daniel Ducarme Minister of Culture – Belgium, Ovidiu Silanghi, Minister of Commerce – Romania.

President of the Socialist Group at the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, President of the Italian parliamentarians of the EPP group and the European MPs of Rifondazione Comunista such as Luisa Morgantini.
Other names include Mario Cuomo  (former Governor of the State of New York); Oumar Khanbiev (Chechnya's former Minister of Health); Kok Ksor (President of the "Montagnard Foundation"); Sakae Menda (once sentenced  to death in Japan); Marek Antoni Nowicki (President of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights); Carlo Ripa di Meana (former European Commissioner for the Environment); Fernando Savater (Writer); Mohamed Sahnoun (African Counsellor for the UN General Secretary);  Vanida Thephsouvanh (President of the "Lao Movement for Human Rights"); Vo Van Ai (President of the Vietnam Committee for Human Rights); Yevgeniy Zhovtis (Director of the  Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights and the Rule of Law).
