The second museum is called Cerem and is designed by Stefano Boeri and is a tribute to the mare nostrum which is the Regional Centre for the Mediterranean. The great structure whose shape is like a large C cut in half by a dock with a large roof overhang and is suspended 19 meters above the ground.
