THE MUSEUM

The Pietro Conti Regional Museum of Emigration was created in order to highlight the historical, cultural and anthropological heritage linked to the massive migratory exodus in which Umbria and Italy as a whole were implicated, from the end of the 19th century on, and which numbered more than 27 million departures. Designed using the technique of video projections, it draws the visitor into an emotional journey which is lived going backwards in time, beginning with the arrival at the final destination, then following the stages of the journey and, finally, ending with the leave-taking. There are documents, images and accounts from every Region in Italy. A chorus of journeys focussing on the emigrant’s experience: the goodbyes, the encounter with and reaction to the foreign country, the nostalgia, the daily satisfactions and heartaches, the assimilation into the new reality, the defeats and the victories, and also a comparison with and reflection on immigration today. The Emigration Museum is also a Study Centre and provides educational workshops. These are envisaged as places for discussion and collective programming which provide teachers with the opportunity to exchange ideas and chose their methodological approach, being equipped with a data-bank, a series of teaching aids and a space for reflection. They offer a number of possible ways to study history, to live the present and to connect with the past using multi-medial sources and content, and multidisciplinary methods and techniques. Study sessions with classes are organised in groups and generally comprise an introduction, a practical activity and a discussion session about the experience. Priority is given to time for exchanging views, exploring content and role-play. The subject-matter dealt with is adapted according to the specific category of school involved.
