NORTH-EAST PASSAGE.
THE MUSEUMS AND
LANDSCAPE OF
NORTH-EASTERN UMBRIA.

This project aims to put online the cultural institutions and sites of interest which are part of the Umbrian Regional Museum Network while also highlighting the currently emerging natural and environmental issues  relevant to the north-eastern areas of the Region. The primary intention is to increase awareness both of the museums themselves and of the natural landscape of the territory, but also to underline, strengthen and enhance the organic links which exist between the various museums in the area, between the museums and their surrounding districts and, also, between the different local communities, whose historical memories and identity are further strengthened by the sharing of knowledge about them. The underlying philosophy of the project envisages an active role for museums in safeguarding the territory’s heritage and facilitating the informed enjoyment of its treasures, whether by residents in the local communities or temporary visitors.

THE MUSEUMS

ITINERARIES

MORE

This project envisages the promotion of transversal or thematic itineraries centred both on the collections of individual museums and the cultural and natural heritage of their surrounding territory. The itineraries  are intended to highlight the peculiar nature of the cultural and environmental problems currently emerging but within an overall unifying framework. In this perspective, each specific aspect, each particular focal point, is relevant to and plays its part in promoting the territory as a whole and its historical and artistic heritage in its entirety, thus creating a complete picture in which, however, specificity and identity are also centre stage.

TEACHING

There are a variety of teaching materials, which can be used either in the exhibition halls of the Museum or remotely, pertaining to the collections or to study themes of interest to the territory’s schoolchildren, thus offering them the opportunity to widen their knowledge of the territory’s history as part of their school syllabuses. In this way the historical, artistic, anthropological and natural aspects of the territory make up a veritable text-book in which the focal points on the web site, the individual museums and the itineraries proposed  constitute the various pages and chapters that can be browsed through.
