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

Inaugurated on 20 December 2013, the Museum of Peace - MAMT (Mediterranean, Art, Music, Traditions) opened its doors to the public on 1 January 2014.
In these ten years - thanks to a 'cordate' of artists, critics, experts, donors, and representatives of institutions - it has been possible to realise a dream that has fascinated more than 100,000 visitors from all over the world, and, in particular, school students who have been able to enjoy a unique place between "Chaos and Wonder".
The Museum of Peace - MAMT is housed in Naples in the historic building of the former 'Grand Hotel de Londres', opposite the central Piazza Municipio, a stone's throw from the cruise port and the new underground station designed by Alvaro Siza.
The Museum was created by the Fondazione Mediterraneo and the 'United States of the World' and is a place where collective memories, art collections, multimedia systems, music and events capture the visitor's imagination, guiding them through a unique emotional experience.
The main rooms of the Museum are named after the most important cities and countries of the Mediterranean and the world and have been inaugurated by their respective heads of state and government: examples include Presidents Gligorov (Republic of Macedonia), Cavaco Silva (Portugal); Erdogan (Turkey), Peres (Israel), Abu Mazen (Palestine), de Marco (Malta); Obama (USA), Juan Carlos (Spain), Rania of Jordan and others.
With 107 large video wall screens, the Museum is equipped with an unprecedented multimedia system: thanks to the new 4K technology, it is possible to enjoy videos, images and multimedia applications that capture the attention of visitors through a unique journey through history, geography, cultures, traditions, politics, religions, destiny...
The Museum of Peace preserves documents, objects and videos from many countries of the world, including gifts from heads of state and government who have visited the Foundation and the "United States of the World".

The 20 sections of the Peace Museum cover major themes such as ecological conversion, archaeology, architecture, art, craftsmanship, legality, migration, music, religions, history and traditions, food, and the great protagonists of history: from Pertini to Caponnetto, from Churchill to Kennedy, from Padre Pio to Mother Teresa, from Don Diana to Falcone, from Don Bosco to Borsellino, and so on for a long list.
At a difficult time in our history when the world's media are focused only on what divides us - wars, pandemics, assassinations, feminicides, terrorist acts, rapes and so on - the precise objective of the "United States of the World" and the Fondazione Mediterraneo is to convey to young people, through the Museum, what unites us: the beautiful, the true and the good.
How? By telling about the environment, cultural heritage, traditions, music, good politics, legality, social justice and whatever else unites us.
In this way it will be possible to partly counteract our daily exposure to news of death, wars and violence that kill our hopes and threaten the idea of a common future: this is especially true for young people who must, instead, become "Hunters of the Positive".
The Museum is the 'emotional heritage of mankind', as UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova stated during her visit to the Museum:
