The Mayor of Ispica, Piero Rustico, accepted the proposal made by President Michele Capasso of creating a seat of Fondazione Mediterraneo in Ispica dedicated to the inter-religious dialogue and to creativity.

The project is based on the realization of the "Totem for Peace" by the Italian sculptor Mario Molinari, which represents the Countries of the Greater Mediterranean and that will be positioned - in various dimension - in the most important cities of the world and in the building of the “Maison de la Paix”.
The Totem will be positioned in the heart of the city of Ispica, within the framework of a larger project which insert Ispica in the Unesco World Heritage.
