THE MAISON DE LA PAIX

CASA UNIVERSALE DELLE CULTURE

The Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture is a place strongly representative, in which will convey the knowledge of the different identities and cultures, structuring permanently initiatives aimed at the spreading of peace, necessary for the shared development.

The Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture (MdP) is a project conceived by Michele Capasso, approved by many Countries and international organizations. It is an architecture that keeps the memory of many Peace activities which created history, often more than the wars, but it is – above all – a space "to build” Peace.

The architectonical complex has an important symbolic worth: it represents the Countries of the World engaged in the Peace process and the Countries victim of the conflicts.

Proposed by the Fondazione Mediterraneo with the Maison des Alliances – together with the main adherent organizations, such as the Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly, the League of Arab States, the "Anna Lindh" Euro-Mediterranean Foundation and others, the MdP represents a referent point for all the ones who dedicate their lives to peace.

The symbol of the MdP is the "Totem for Peace", an artwork by the Italian sculptor Mario Molinari which the Fondazione Mediterraneo is promoting all around the world, creating the network of the "Cities for Peace".

The first seat of the MdP was inaugurated on the 14th of June 2010 (Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture) in the historical building of the Grand Hotel de Londres in Naples.

The action of the Maison de la Paix - Casa Universale delle Culture aims at improving the main activities of the "Universal Forum of Cultures" in: Barcelona (2004), Monterrey (2007), Valparaiso (2010) and Naples (2013).

The Maison de la Paix performs most of the initiatives jointly with the Maison de la Méditerranée.

Of the 127 victims buried this year alongside the 6,504 existing graves, there are also sminors.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo, founded precisely to help these innocent victims, appeals to the world to prevent genocide of this kind from occurring again.

In the 22nd anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre, thousands of people gathered in the Potocari memorial cemetery, near Srebrenica, to pay homage to the 8,372 victims of the genocide committed in 1995 by the Bosnian Serbs of Ratko Mladic, and to participate at the funeral of another 71 victims identified in the last year. 5,000 participants in the March of Peace arrived in Potocari. Of the 71 victims buried this year alongside the 6,504 existing graves, there are also seven minors: the youngest is Damir Suljic, who was killed only 15 years, while the oldest is Alija Salihovic, 72 years old.
The 6,662 victims of the genocide so far identified with the DNA method, of which 233 at the behest of the families are not buried in Potocari, were found in 81 mass graves. We are still looking for the remains of 1,100 victims of the genocide officially considered 'missing'.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo, founded precisely to help these innocent victims, appeals to the world to prevent genocide of this kind from occurring again.

The end of the nineteenth century brought with it profound changes to the city’s town planning. The government began action to renovate the most deprived areas of Naples and to construct the sea-front from scratch. This exciting atmosphere of urban renewal also attracted a Belgian financier named Oscar du Mesnil, who was in Naples with his wife. He was so fascinated by the city that he decided to construct a hotel on the new sea-front to do justice to the beauty of the site. “Grand Hotel du Vesuve” was duly constructed in 1882.
On 11th June 2018 the panoramic terrace opens: a magic on the Gulf of Naples.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo, which has hosted to  "Vesuvio" personalities from various countries of the world during the last 30 years, took part in the event.
