The Museum of Peace - MAMT is housed in Naples in the historic building of the former "Grand Hotel de Londres", facing the central Piazza Municipio, a stone's throw from the cruise port and the new underground station designed by Alvaro Siza.
The Museum was created by the Fondazione Mediterraneo and the "United States of the World" and is a place where collective memories, art collections, multimedia systems, music and events capture the visitor's imagination, guiding them through a unique emotional experience.
The main rooms of the Museum are named after the most important cities and countries of the Mediterranean and the world and were inaugurated by the respective heads of state and government: as an example we mention the presidents Gligorov (Republic of Macedonia), Cavaco Silva (Portugal), Erdogan (Turkey), Peres (Israel), Abu Mazen (Palestine), de Marco (Malta); Obama (USA), Juan Carlos (Spain), Rania of Jordan and others.
With 107 large video wall screens, the Museum is equipped with an unprecedented multimedia system: thanks to the new 4K technology, it is possible to enjoy videos, images and multimedia applications that capture visitors' attention through a unique journey through history, geography, cultures, traditions, politics, religions, destiny…
The Museum of Peace houses documents, objects and videos from many countries of the world, including gifts from heads of state and government who have visited the Foundation and the "United States of the World".
The 20 sections of the Museum of Peace concern major themes such as ecological conversion, archeology, architecture, art, craftsmanship, legality, migrations, music, religions, history and traditions, the food, the great protagonists of history: from Pertini to Caponnetto, from Churchill to Kennedy, from Padre Pio to Mother Teresa, from Don Diana to Falcone, from Don Bosco to Borsellino and so on for a long list.
In a difficult moment in our history in which the world's media are focused only on what divides us - wars, pandemics, assassinations, feminicides, terrorist acts, rapes and so on - the precise objective of the "United States of the World” and of the Fondazione Mediterraneo is to transmit to young people, through the Museum, what unites us: the beautiful, the true and the good.
As? Talking about the environment, cultural heritage, traditions, music, good politics, legality, social justice and everything else that unites us.
In this way it will be possible to partially counteract our daily exposure to the news of death, war and violence that kill our hopes and threaten the idea of ​​a common future: this is especially true for young people who must, instead, become "hunters of Positive".
The Museum is an "emotional heritage of humanity", as stated by the Director General of UNESCO Irina Bokova on a visit to the Museum. Visitors from all over the world are impressed and moved by a unique place called "Chaos and Wonder”.
