MAMT||Museo Mediterraneo dell' Arte, della Musica e delle Tradizioni (EN)

The Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Museum of Peace - MAMT celebrated the "50th World Earth Day" via the web and with numerous initiatives: video conferences, links, chats and - above all - sending 1,000 copies of the volume "This good land of ours" published in 2014 by the Foundation and written by Sister Maria Pia Giudici, disappeared on 20.02.2020 just on the day the coronavirus spread in Italy.
Through high-quality multimedia videos, a gift of the World Heritage Museum, it was possible to make a virtual journey across the 5 continents, giving voice to the peoples who daily guard our common home, living and fighting for the protection and recognition of rights of every people in every corner of the Earth.
In a world too often crushed by the European interpretation of the environment and its functions, the commitment of organizations and realities emerges which, by establishing positive relationships with nature, protect the original peoples who have always preserved the lung of the earth. They fight together with those who daily commit themselves to service and to promote conservation, of the Amazonian forests or of the Congo forest.
Taking care of these peoples means taking care of the entire ecosystem, of the world, of our common home.
The interrelation between the peoples of the earth is clear, the interdependence that makes us protagonists of a common destiny, which depends on the actions of men and women from every corner of the planet. With delicate ferocity, current events reveal the subtle but constant bond that makes us all part and architects of the future of our planet.
One people sharing one planet.
The virtual journey of the Museum of Peace - MAMT allows us to listen to those who daily protect the earth to protect each of us.
President Michele Capasso retraced the steps of his commitment to the land: at the age of 16, on April 22, 1970, he participated in the first edition of the world day. A commitment that for half a century has seen it spread, by all means, the alarm on the conditions of our common home, as evidenced by hundreds of reports and publications.
