Mur Akush is the ancient Berber name of Marrakech, one of the best known and most important cities in Morocco.

For the Berbers, who have inhabited these areas since prehistoric times, Mur Akush means Land of God. And it was precisely this land, over the centuries, that welcomed such distant cultures as the Egyptians, the Romans and finally the Arabs, who colonized and shaped the landscape, leaving stratifications still visible to the naked eye today.

Morocco is in fact a sui generis African state in which the various cultures that inhabit it seem to find a subtle transcendent balance: it is precisely in the Land of God that religion and secularism intertwine surrounded by the metaphysical breath of a hard and varied natural landscape.

It is the Land of God, the ancient land of the Berbers, that welcomes and dilutes diversity; it is the land of where the Earth ends.
