Ecomuseo del Vanoi

The Ecomuseo of Vanoi embraces the SPACE (in the broadest context and extending to the whole environment, to the landscape, to man's places and activities, to the material and spiritual culture and to spaces recognised and made use of on a daily basis...), the TIME (tracing the history of man from his past in this area to the present day, with a view to the future, recognising the continuity of history, the transformations and possible evolution...), the COMMUNITY (a mirror in which the population recognises itself, where it seeks the values of the area to which it is linked, presenting the area to visitors in order to better make itself understood, respecting its work and identity...) and the SKILLS (still present in the activities, crafts and knowledge conserved in the living memories and skills of many inhabitants, offered as a working resource and in new creative and entrepreneurial forms).

The Ecomuseo aims at 7 main themes:

WATER: for centuries the Vanoi stream has represented a means of transporting timber, with mills and sawmills, springs and irrigation ditches
WOOD: the wealth of the Vanoi valley since the 14th century
MINES: lead, copper, zinc and silver mines dating back to the 15th century, a place where hundreds of German miners known as bergknappen or canopi worked. Lime kilns for the production of lime
RELIGIOUS SITES: signs linked to worship are to be found everywhere, with churches, shrines, frescoes, rural and processional crosses
WAR: the war cemetery, the First World War museum in Caoria, the walkways and trenches high in the mountains
GRASS: meadows at medium altitude for haymaking, a resource and feature of the landscape
MOBILITY: the movement of people within the valley and towards the outside world.
