Our logo represents a cell, that is the main unit of every living being and the smallest living structure. Each cell is a self-sufficient unit: it assimilates nourishment and turns it to energy and relations. It can also reproduce and do specialized functions. Cells all together form an organism.
Family is described as the main cell of the society (from Familiaris Consortio, 42: “family is linked to the society by living and organic ties: through its service to life, family is its own first nourishment. Family gives life to new citizens and it is for them the first school of social virtues, the soul of development of society”). The Italian Constitution defends main family rights by the article 29: “Italian Republic recognizes family rights as a natural society based on marriage”, and by the article number 31: ”Italian Republic facilitates new families through economic policy, with a particular care for the large ones. It safeguards maternity, childhood and youth, creating facilities for this purpose”.
The very first human cell is formed by the union of a woman’s egg cell with a man’s one: the first cell receives, the second one gives his life.
Suddenly, something extraordinary happens: 23 of 47 man’s chromosomes meet as much woman’s other chromosomes, creating a new life.
This union and exchange, its logic and order are the main wonder of Creation: the outcome of a human meeting, of a marriage tie, the archetypal of the marriage rate.
Then, another divine miracle happens: the new cell divides into two parts and each of them contains the very first cell’s love property.
Thus, the formation of all the human cells celebrates this first cells meeting which gave and received each other with joy and whishing.
We are all that. That is our body, that is our association: loving cells, giving cells, receiving cells.
Every cell of our body celebrates the wonders of marriage.
Our logo cell is light brown in the external part, darker in the inside nucleus.
The positive meaning of the colour remembers the earth, but also fecundity, growth, maturing, up to all the comfort experiences of life.
It is the colour of welcome, stability, safety, of love for our own origins, of patience and tenacity. Those ones who love brown prefer a calm life, live strong and safe relations, have great work abilities. Brown is the colour of people who are peaceful, trusty, thoughtful, integrated, strong with an easy personality and attached to good traditional values.
The nucleus is the most complex organ present in all the cells: the point from which all the activities and relations of the living cells start.
In our nucleus logo there are six stylized figures: a father and a mother , looking and embracing with tenderness their little children, keep safe with love.
A nest, a living womb: warm, welcoming, full of kindness, embraces, caress.
All the six figures are white with silver glints. White colour is associated with light, goodness, innocence, simplicity, sacredness and redemption.
It contains all the other colours unifying them, and it is used to describe all the changes: just like bride’s white dress or the funerary white of the oriental cultures.
It is the starting colour, a bridge to something new and beautiful.
The silvering white symbolizes the moon and the woman’s beginning: our mums, who gave us life and our family that welcome, embrace and grow life.
