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.
President Michele Capasso, deeply moved by the sobriety of the ceremony but at the same time by touching moments like the music of Daniel Baremboin on the piano, recalls the friendship with President Chirac and his high sensitivity when he accepted the invitation of President Ciampi (July 2000) to transfer the headquarters of the "Maison de la Méditerranée" and the "Museum of Peace" from Marseille to Naples.
As a member of the honorary committee, he never failed to give the "Maison" and the Fondazione Mediterraneo its support and its highest consideration.
Thank you President
