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

The MAMT- Mediterranean Museum of Art, Music and Traditions is an institution created by the Fondazione Mediterraneo with the aim “to experience” in an interactive way, the positive emotions of Our Sea through Arts, Music and Traditions. The MAMT is one of the most important initiatives of Fondazione Mediterraneo: an active space created in order to let communicate Arts, Music and Traditions of the Mediterranean contemporary society. The awareness of a past full of ancient traditions is the base for the construction of a rational and connected humanity: the vastness of the Mediterranean area collects together the responsibility, the hard work and intelligence with the ability to share spaces and cultures. Today, more than ever, the sense of future is given by the awareness of the sorrow, of the conflicts and at the same time by the ability to share joys and bond.
Art and Music are since ever the tool of communication and sharing of the humanity that, in a particular “Mediterranean” path, allows us to overtake the violence of the human being that showed itself in his greater brutality in countries as Bosnia, Palestine, Syria and other places: as testify of this there are Bosnia, in order not to forget and Suffering and Hope in the world, exhibitions of the museum.

At the same time there are symbols inviting to meeting and hope appear in lands of desolation and Hush: The Ferrigno Nativity Scene, the exhibition a Sea, three Faiths, the Peace and the Last Neapolitan Supper are part of the Museum.

Thanks to the Campania Region, the manager Anita Florio and the officials Federico Lomolino and Carmine Oliva, it was possible to supplement the 2021 Braille Call for Proposals with additional unused resources.
Thanks to these resources, the Fondazione Mediterraneo, together with volunteers and collaborators, has created tactile plaques and reproductions in addition to the existing ones, enabling the most significant works to be enjoyed by the blind by means of transcoding them into Braille.
This is particularly important for the large works - such as "The Last Supper" (4.5 x 2.60 m) and the Great Mihrab (9 x 1.60 m) - for which it is now possible to "touch" them and enjoy all the details with tactile Braille relief reproductions.A special thanks to the companies "Handy System" of Rome, "EdilSantagata" of Caserta and "Stampa Gargiulo" of Naples for the quality of the work carried out with passion.
