Our sponsors testify

Since its creation, the CoPaM has been fortunate to benefit from prestigious sponsors. 

"I welcome this collective initiative on the Mediterranean heritage resulting from the Summit of the two shores. As a pilot project, the revitalization of the Medina of Sfax is of paramount importance. Not only for Sfax but also for the preservation of Arab-Muslim architecture, of a historic centre that has inspired so many creators and artists and for the collective memory. The logistical and financial support of the CoPaM and its partners offers a glimmer of hope to all these places on which our civilizations are based. »
