The Fondazione Mediterraneo - with the sections "Académie de la Méditerranée", "Maison de la Méditerranée", "Museum of Peace and the Mediterranean"; with the branch offices, the members of the International Committee and of the Executive Council - pays tribute to Jaques Chirac and his vision for a Mediterranean of peace in dialogue with a United Europe.

AT THE MUSEUM OF PEACE CELEBRATED THE DAY OF THE MIGRANT AND REFUGEE

Great influx of young people and migrants to Museum of Peace to celebrate the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, wanted by the Church since 1914. It has always been an opportunity to show concern for the different categories of vulnerable people on the move, to pray for challenges and raising awareness of the opportunities offered by migration.
Pope Francis chose the theme "It's not just about migrants" to show us our weaknesses and make sure no one is left out of society, whether it's a long-time resident citizen, or a newcomer.
President Capasso recalled the thirty-year commitment of the Mediterranean Foundation and its staff in favor of migrants, summarized in the Museum's emotional journey entitled "Voices of Migrants".
Moments of prayer with the celebration of Holy Mass took place on the ground floor of the Museum in the Chapels dedicated to Don Bosco, Mother Mazzarello, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope Giovanni Paolo II.
The Islamic communities have held moments of common prayer in the Peace Museum Mosque

THE CITY OF NAPLES HOMAGE THE TOTEM OF PEACE WITH THE URN OF THE UNKNOWN MIGRANT

On the occasion of the "Day of Migrants and Refugees", the city of Naples paid tribute to the "Totem of Peace" (Molinari sculptor) with the urn of the Unknown Migrant, which became the symbol of the refugees who launch an appeal against the closure of the ports, for a policy of welcoming and integrating all those fleeing wars.
The "Totem of Peace" - which the Fondazione Mediterraneo is spreading all over the world - increasingly represents refugees, the weak, the poor and those who are victims of injustice and illegality.
In particular, the monumental work made in front of the Maritime Station of the Port of Naples - donated to the Coast Guard Corps on the occasion of the 150th anniversary - contains the relics of the Unknown Migrant, brought by the Coast Guard officers of Lampedusa on March 21st 2015 in presence of Pope Francis
