Maison de la Paix

CASA UNIVERSALE DELLE CULTURE

The Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture is a place strongly representative, in which will convey the knowledge of the different identities and cultures, structuring permanently initiatives aimed at the spreading of peace, necessary for the shared development.

The Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture (MdP) is a project conceived by Michele Capasso, approved by many Countries and international organizations. It is an architecture that keeps the memory of many Peace activities which created history, often more than the wars, but it is – above all – a space "to build” Peace.

The architectonical complex has an important symbolic worth: it represents the Countries of the World engaged in the Peace process and the Countries victim of the conflicts.

Proposed by the Fondazione Mediterraneo with the Maison des Alliances – together with the main adherent organizations, such as the Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly, the League of Arab States, the "Anna Lindh" Euro-Mediterranean Foundation and others, the MdP represents a referent point for all the ones who dedicate their lives to peace.

The symbol of the MdP is the "Totem for Peace", an artwork by the Italian sculptor Mario Molinari which the Fondazione Mediterraneo is promoting all around the world, creating the network of the "Cities for Peace".

The first seat of the MdP was inaugurated on the 14th of June 2010 (Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture) in the historical building of the Grand Hotel de Londres in Naples.

The action of the Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture aims at improving the main activities of the "Universal Forum of Cultures" in: Barcelona (2004), Monterrey (2007), Valparaiso (2010) and Naples (2013).

In it, a new leader of the “RIDE-aps” was appointed to replace the Fondazione Mediterraneo, elected as such by the General Assembly of 11 September 2015 and with anexpiring mandate set for 11 September 2018 (as confirmed by MAECI by letter of 23.11.2015).
Members unanimously expressed their dismay at this decision and sent a letter to the Minister Alfano with a proposal of a mediation with twoleaders.
The representative of “CO.PE.A.M.” - Ms. Paola Parri, - declares "to have confirmed the membership of CO.PE.A.M. to the RIDE association and that this does not conflict with the status that the CO.PE.A.M. he is a member of the FAL Italian Network (see signed minutes, page 12).
This was the unanimous opinion of the 26 members of the National Network, many of them members of the FAL Advisory Council and representatives of international organizations who sent a letter and an appeal to the Minister Alfano.
The lawyer responsible for the Italian Network Dr. Salvatore Calleri - President of the Caponnetto Foundation - sent a letter to the Minister requesting the implementation of the only possible solution.
In order to facilitate this solution - the appointment of two leaders, one "RIDE – aps” and the other “Anna Lindh Italy Onlus Federation”, with the allocation of resources at the “RIDE- aps” alone - the General Assembly, legitimately constituted and legitimately deliberating, has approved new "Internal Rules" that allow the immediate implementation of the proposed solution.
The General Assembly of the “Anna Lindh Italia Onlus Federation” met on August 28, 2017.
Many members of the Italian Network have expressed the intention to write autonomously to Minister Alfano. Details in the attached documentation.
