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.

 

The Fondazione Mediterraneo took part in the inauguration ceremony of the Chair dedicated by the "La Sapienza" University to the "dialogue and peaceful coexistence among religions". In the aula magna of Palazzo del Rettorato, was held the inauguration ceremony with the title "King Hamad Chair for Inter-Religious Dialogue and Peace Co-existence", whose owner is Alessandro Saggioro. The ceremony opened with greetings from Rector Eugenio Gaudio and Crown Prince Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa representing the HM King of Bahrain Ḥamad bin'Īsā Āl Khalīfa.
The institution of the Chair aims to involve the new generations in a policy of knowledge and relationship between cultures and religions, as an antidote to extremism and radicalism. In a recent statement, His Majesty the King of Bahrain said: "Ignorance is the enemy of peace and therefore it is our duty to learn, share and live together".
