Ecomuseum ‘Antennae’ Network

Ecomuseum ‘Antennae’ Network

The Ecomuseum of Casentino is located in the first valley of the ‘Valle dell’Arno’, in the province of Arezzo. The initiative was started at the end of the nineties by the ‘Comunità Montana’ (mountain community) with community funding (LEADER 2 and LEADER PLUS) and the direct involvement of various municipal administrations.

The general structure of the project, with a focus on museum systems and centres, which can be found amongst other experiences in the region, represents a sort of ‘Tuscan model’ in the definition of museum systems on a local scale.

The Ecomuseum of Casentino, in its original conception, was set up using six systems (archeological, castle civilization, water, woodland, pastoral agriculture, manufacturing), macro themes through which it’s possible to examine the dynamics of the relationship between mankind and the environment in time and space. Every system is expressed through a series of themes, with specific roles and characteristics, which also reflect diverse times, spaces and ways of doing things.
