The journalist Emiliano Guanella visited Medellín in August of this year to understand how the city has transformed, mainly in relation to mobility, social inclusion and security. Hand in hand with ACI Medellín ―entity that prepared a large agenda of meetings and interviews with officials of the Secretariat of Security for the journalist― the he had the opportunity to approach initiatives such as the mass transport system, Metro de Medellín and the San Javier Library Park. In these spaces, he interviewed representatives of the Recreando Corporation and the group of Mujeres Caminando por la Verdad.
After his visit, Guanella highlighted the renaissance of Medellín after living a past marked by violence. Also, the journalist highlighted the efforts of the Ministry of Security of Medellín to reduce the homicide rate and restore citizen trust.

In the same way, he said that the Public Library System provides culture and spaces of quality to its inhabitants, driving them away from violence.
