A moai of Michelangelo Carrara marble carved by Rapanui artist Bene Tuki stands in Venice. In early 2004, an agreement was signed between the Italian Marenostrum Foundation (whose President is Orlando Pandolfi) and the Rapa Nui Mana Henua Ote Ao Corporation (President, Edgard Hereveri) for a series of joint activities leading to cultural and artistic exchanges, development strategies, and education and training. I am my self Honorary President of the Rapa Nui Corporation and Director of the Scientific Council of Marenostrum.
