The Fondazione Mediterraneo, in partnership with academies, universities and various countries around the world, presented at the Museum of PeaceMAMT, "THE REPUBLIC OF SPACE": a long-term project aimed at protecting, preserving, enhancing and promoting the heritage of humanity in the main categories.

We live in a difficult moment in our history - said the president Michele Capasso - in which the fluid dimension seems to be predominant: values, climate change, art, creativity, crafts, collective memories and much more seem to have no more meaning and everything appears at the mercy of an "anomalous" wave capable of upsetting the world by taking everything away.

To save the immense material and immaterial world heritage it is necessary to act "Beyond" and "Other": creating a real dimension outside our planet, precisely in Space, where to protect, safeguard, enhance and promote the most significant part of the assets world heritage. From artistic heritage - at risk of earthquakes, floods and climatic events - to collective immaterial memories, from the most significant documents of history to poems, from ancient knowledge to new technologies: a list nourished of things to be preserved and protected, both at an intangible and material".

On the occasion of the celebrations of the thirtieth anniversary of the birth of the Fondazione Mediterraneo  - scheduled for 2020 - the executive project and the general criteria of "The Republic of Space" will be presented in various countries.
