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.
Near the Totem of Peace and other works by Mario Molinari, sculptor of the color, accompanies the lonely journey of freedom, the Dreamlike World of John Crown and the desire of participation and recognition of the role of women in the Mediterranean in the exhibition “Breaking the Veils, women artists of Islamic World”.
Fado, Flamenco, Tango and Sirtaki, the Song of Naples, the Great Lyric Operas, Arabic Music and the Classics of all the times catch the attention of the audience with the acoustic perfection of the “Music hall” of the Museum.
The section dedicated to Pino Daniele has a particular meaning.
The warm of the Mediterranean human nature and the awareness of the necessity to keep track, the the wealth and the fertility find in the “Section Architecture” – with the Associated presences of Alvaro Siza, Ciamarra Picas, Vittorio Di Pace, Nicola Pagliara, Marco Introini and others - and in the Voices of the Migrants and other strong point.
The artworks of Pietro and Rino Volpe mark Mediterranean signs in which the culture and the literature merge with the creativity making a unique collection.
A collection of HD video about the most important sites of the Campania Region will accompany the tourists of cruises and the visitors in the whole building: the ground floor facing on Municipio Square will host an info-point unique in its kind. The MAMT is also an articulated system of services in the heart of the city of Naples: the library, the emeroteque, the music hall, salt conventions, the restaurants, the Euromedcafé, the residences and the bookshop receive the visitor with sympathy and enthusiasm: that enthusiasm of the Mediterranean!

Three hundred students from various schools came to the United States of the World and the Peace Museum to celebrate Liberation Day on 25 April 2022. In connection with Acerra, the official ceremony in the presence of President Sergio Mattarella was broadcast live on large video walls.

The Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Museum of Peace - MAMT celebrated the "52nd World Earth Day" with the theme "INVESTIAMO PER IL PIANETA" (WE INVEST IN THE PLANET) via the web and with numerous initiatives: videoconferences, links, chats and - above all - the sending of 1,000 copies of the book "Questa nostra buona terra" (This good earth of ours) published in 2014 by the Fondazione and written by Sister Maria Pia Giudici, who died on 20.02.2020 on the very day that the coronavirus spread in Italy.
Through high-quality multimedia videos, a gift of the World Heritage Museum, it was possible to take a virtual journey across the five continents, giving voice to the people who daily guard our common home, living and fighting for the protection and recognition of the rights of each people in every corner of the Earth.
In a world that is too often crushed by the European interpretation of the environment and its functions, the commitment of organisations and realities emerges which, by establishing positive relationships 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 serving and promoting the conservation of the Amazonian forests or the Congo forest.
Caring for these peoples means caring for the entire ecosystem, the world, our common home.
The interrelationship 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 in every corner of the planet. With delicate ferocity, it is current events that reveal to us the subtle but constant link that makes us all part of and creators 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 protect the earth on a daily basis to protect each one of us.
President Michele Capasso retraced the steps of his commitment to the earth: at the age of 16, on 22 April 1970, he took part in the first edition of World Earth Day. For half a century, his commitment has seen him spread the alarm about the conditions of our common home, as evidenced by hundreds of reports and publications.
As a reminder for Sister Maria Pia Giudici below is President Michele Capasso's preface to the volume "Questa nostra buona terra".
On this occasion, "THE APPEAL FOR THE UNITED STATES OF THE WORLD" was presented.
