A research and a proposal to a circle line of the mare nostrum
As privileged place of the meeting, the Mediterranean has brought different peoples and civilizations into contact, it has always been a frontier in the most positive sense of the term, a border projected towards the other where purity is lost in favor of continuous contamination.
The peculiarity of the Mediterranean pluriverse lies in the fact that it is a real “sea among the lands” through which traditions, religions and different cultures can interact and enrich themselves by mutual comparison.
The role of the Mare Nostrum is increasingly marginalized, overwhelmed by oceanic drift: East and West are thought of as opposing monocultural blocks between which only conflicting relationships are possible.
It is precisely in this context that the importance and value of the Mediterranean must be rediscovered
We have imagined a circle line of the mare nostrum, an opportunity for exchange and knowledge for everyone, a connection between countries not only for tourism or trade.
Fast boats and electrically- propelled seaplanes that will connect the shores of the mare nostrum, floating stations and fast and continuous maritime connections to encourage migration and cultural exchanges. A light infrastructural path with interchange points that will lead to a greater relationship between peoples and to a development of the coastal areas affected by the maritime stations.
The enhancement of the characteristics of the sea among the lands constitutes the alternative to be followed to promote mutual understanding and multilateral cooperation, to finance and implement development projects necessary to achieve economic and social peace.
