What is it about?

The Mother Teresa Museum (see www.museomadreteresa.it or www.motherteresamuseum.net) is a project support by Italian and Albanian non-profit associations.

It promotes the message of Mother Teresa and it needs to raise funds for social initiatives.

On the 4th of September 2016, Mother Teresa will be proclaimed Saint by Pope Francis, and on the same date the Museum will be inaugurated in his first part but we have collected a lot of other documentations that we can not expose for lack of funds.

WHY IS IMPORTANT YOUR CONTRIBUTION

1) To expose these documentations and to make the Museum more beauty, large and important: with your contribution, we can support the cost of installation for the rights of photos, texts, translations, graphics, printing , the location and the lighting;

2) To realize the “Dialogue Network”, an absolute novelty and it consists in an intranet network that for the first time in the world it will connect all the Museums and sites that promote the same message of solidarity and dialogue between different religions and cultures. It will be possibile to use it through a totem placed inside the Mother Teresa Museum.

DESCRIPTION

The Museum was born in Durres (Albania, Mother Teresa’s country of origin) and it has the support of the Municipality of Durres, the patronage of the Vatican, the Nobel Peace Prizes, and the representatives of all religions (Christians, Orthodox, Muslims ).

It is set up in a space long more than 100 meters and it looks directly in the main square of the city, close to a Mosque: the location is already itself a great message of dialogue.

Inside the Museum there are placed audiovisuals and over 60 panels (of m. 2 X 1) that show in three languages (Italian, English and Albanian) the most beautiful phrases of Mother Teresa, documents, images and photos of the greatest photographers who followed his work (Podestà, Morihiro, Collopy).
