The  International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, thanks to the precious treasures of ceramics coming from all over the world, it preserves has been acknowledged “Monuments messenger of a culture of Peace”, according to the program of UNESCO in 2000, year for a culture of peace.

Maria Luisa Stringa, President of the Italian Federation Club UNESCO and Responsible for Italy of the Program “Monuments and sites messengers of peace” announces the reason for the acknowledgement:

“considered the deep values testified by the MIC, not only concerning Art but also the development of strategies to stimulate the dialogue among the cultures of the world, we realized that the Museum constitutes a point of reference for ancient, modern, contemporary ceramics, both national and international. It is due to the presence of a great ceramic collection and to the exceptional documentation preserved in the Museum Library. We also considered the importance of a place where studious and artists from all over the world meet to deepen and stimulate their knowledge. It is of a great value the dish with the peace dove by Picasso that welcome the visitors: the dove flight symbolically represents a hope for the future. Our acknowledgement is addressed to the MIC Faenza, expression of ceramic art in the world, for the pertinence of the program, the significance of the intercultural dialogue and the meeting of people for building the peace”.

A fundamental element is represented by the Italian Federation of UNESCO Clubs that accepted the invitation from the past General Director of UNESCO Federico Mayor, who, on the occasion of the opening of the year for the culture of peace, wished to evaluate art and natural sites testifying the culture of peace, thanks to their richness of values.
