TEACHING AND EDUCATIONAL CLASS TO THE MUSEUM OF THE ALPS
The Museum of the Alps collects and proposes the natural, historic, social and cultural rights of the Alps. Through a multi-sensory and multi-disciplinary path, the visitor is emotionally involved in a story line that starts from orogenesis and comes to the signs of anthropization, dwells on the rituals and myths of the mountain civilization, illustrates the relationship between the city and the mountains in modernity, to be completed by assuming new forms of sustainable development for the future.
Sets, re-enactments, reconstructions and interactive multimedia tools are chosen to express the themes proposed in an on-going dialogue between technology and tradition.
