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

The Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Museum of Peace - MAMT celebrated the "51st World Earth Day" via the web and with numerous initiatives: videoconferences, connections, chats and - above all - the sending of 1,000 copies of the volume "This good earth of ours" published in 2014 by the Foundation and written by Sister Maria Pia Giudici, who passed away on 20.02.2020 precisely the day the coronavirus spread in Italy.
Through high-quality multimedia videos, a dowry 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 each 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, establishing positive relations with nature, protect the original peoples who have always preserved the lungs of the earth. They fight together with those who daily commit themselves to service and to promote the conservation of the Amazon forests or 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, it is current events that reveal the subtle but constant bond that makes us all part of and architects of the future of our planet.
A single people sharing a single planet
The virtual journey of the Museum of Peace - MAMT allows us to listen to those who protect the earth every day to protect each of us.
President Michele Capasso retraced the stages of his commitment to the earth: at the age of 16, on April 22, 1970, he took part in the first edition of the world day. A commitment that for half a century has seen him spread, by all means, the alarm about the conditions of our common home, as evidenced by hundreds of interventions, reports and publications.
As I recall for Sister Maria Pia Giudici, below is the preface by President Michele Capasso to the volume “This good earth of ours”.
On this occasion the "APPEAL FOR THE UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD" was presented
