The ancient civilizations it has hosted, the subsequent population exchanges, and the attraction it holds for people today have kept the Mediterranean pulse beating and culture beaming.

The bright-colored rubber slippers struggling to ride the waves represent people who have migrated to places far away from here as well as people who have migrated here from far-away places. The intention of the video is to draw attention to the state of being Mediterranean.
