Marie Marzloff

Marie Marzloff was the Deputy Director at CESIE and Head of the HR and International cooperation department. Initially arrived in Palermo in 2004, where her curiosity and dedication to discover the local reality lead her to work for the European volunteer service. Right from the very beginning, Marie’s been strongly promoting initiatives related to gender equality and intercultural dialogue. One of the most active and convinced supporters of the CESIE’s work and mission, Marie was constantly contributing to the center’s growth and its successful performance on both European and international levels.

The contest pays tribute to Marie’s memory. It aims to continue even further on her path by trying to use her passion to bring her ideas to life: relying on the universal language of art to promote intercultural dialogue so that it becomes a means of communication and education.

Anyone who was lucky enough to work with her has gained a unique learning experience leading to new horizons and possibilities. Marie always knew to give a piece of advice to dispel all doubt and to help find ideas and unusual solutions.

Marie was the energy, drive and soul of CESIE.

We wish that her curiosity and ability to combine ideas coming from places which are very different from each other will continue to inspire others.
