The Fondazione Mediterraneo - which has had its headquarters in the city of Marrakech since 2002 - supports the ocher city designated African Capital of Culture 2020: a showcase for today's urban Africa, to promote the diversity of African cultural expressions.
In 2020, Marrakech, this millennial city twice listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, first through its medina since 1985, but also Jamaa Lafna Square as an intangible heritage in 2001, will bring the colors of African culture.
World famous tourist destination, Marrakech has an important tourist-cultural value capable of hosting international events of absolute importance.
The human capital of the city and the habit of multiculturalism allow Marrakech to launch a pilot edition of African capitals of culture, through the creation of the organizing committee of Marrakech 2020.
The African capitals of culture, which will be launched for the first time, is considered an important event, anchored and piloted in Africa and spread internationally. It is an initiative that coordinates and enhances the skills, know-how and abilities in the continent and in the diaspora that make up Africa today and shape the world of tomorrow.
