The idea of ​​the project “ITALY TO DISCOVER” was first proposed by the Fondazione Mediterraneo (FM) on the occasion of the Euromed Civil Forum (FCE) in Naples (1997): on that occasion the 3,000 representatives of 36 countries commissioned the Foundation to implement this action.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo - with the Maison de la Paix (MDP), the Maison de la Méditerranée (MDM), the Accademia del Mediterraneo (ADM) and the Museum of Peace - MAMT - has been committed since 1989 to enhancing the role of Italy in the Euro-Mediterranean area: for these reasons, on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the FM (2020), the Governing Council resolved to consolidate the results obtained by implementing the project "ITALY TO DISCOVER" intended as a set of events finalized each year - from 2020 to 2050 - to promote and enhance the main Italian institutions and regions.
