From today onwards, peace has its own address: Via Depretis, 130, in Naples, headquarter for the Fondazione Mediterraneo and now for a great action for peace too: the Maison de la Paix.

And the Maison de la Paix could not but have one symbol: the Totem of Peace, the icon for the peace in the world. A red sail, symbol for journey and union, chosen by 187 countries in the world as an image of dialogue and union, created and made by the sculptor of colour, Mario Molinari. The work is displayed on the terrace of the Maison de la Paix, but soon it will be also at the Museo Diocesano in Naples, at the Theatre of San Carlo and in more meaningful places too.

In the ancient building of the former “Grand Hotel de Londres”, gathered around the “Totem of Peace”, ambassadors and representatives from supporting countries, members of International organizations and institutions officially started the activity of the “Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture” with an important debate “Middle East: which dialogue for which possible peace”.

Several messages supported the opening of the “Maison de la Paix”: from the Italian President Giorgio Napolitano to Msg. Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, from the Advisor of the King of Morocco André Azoulay, to the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Jordan Wijdan Al-Hashemi, from the Secretary General of the Parliamentary Assembly for the Mediterranean to Beatrice of Bourbon Two Sicilies.
