The ecomuseum

An ecomuseum is radically different from a traditional museum, since it achieves its objective in a completely different context. It is not housed in a building and does not have a collection of physical objects or artefacts. It allows visitors to discover the cultural and environmental identity of a region, as well as its tangible and intangible heritage through a structured narrative and specific thematic routes that begin at specific locations that also serve as information points. 

The earliest ecomuseums appeared in various European countries in 1971 and contributed to the preservation of traditional professions, the transmission of historical memory, the revival of local events, the protection of the environment, the strengthening of alternative tourism models, and the adoption of sustainable development activities. 

Cultural heritage is the sum total of individual lives. Ecomuseums protect it and present it with the contribution of local residents. Visitors have the opportunity to discover this heritage through a comprehensive experience based on a dialectic relationship with the contents of the ecomuseum. This cordial environment entertains visitors and enables them to effortlessly acquire new knowledge and identify with the provided information.
