Network-Centres in the province of Cuneo

“The Memory of the Alps” Interreg project is now underway in the province of Cuneo. The project, which covers the entire Alpine arc from the Ligurian Sea to Canton Ticino, aims to set up a cross-border museum network dedicated to the history and memory of the mountainous areas of Italy, France and Switzerland. Traditional or virtual ecomuseums, open-air museums and exhibition structures have been set up or revitalised for this purpose.

As part of this project, a total of 43 paths, known as the “Paths of Freedom”, are being built in the
province of Cuneo
and structured around the themes of war, racial persecution and the Resistance. Signs have been prepared for each path which will allow visitors to walk along it and get an initial understanding of its historical importance. Further information will be provided by the 10 Network-Centres that have been created, dotted throughout the area and located in buildings that are themselves linked in various ways to the themes of the historical period in question.  Spaces, materials and equipment are available at these Network-Centres and initiatives are organised to offer historical information to back up the trips along the paths and allow the choices, circumstances and emotions of those involved to be relived.

Each Network-Centre possesses the necessary equipment to provide assistance and information for visitors. In particular, it will be equipped with:

  • teaching and informative material on the entire network: maps, brochures, books, CD-Roms;
  • IT stations to access the Italo-French and Swiss data banks on the themes covered by the itineraries;
  • activity areas for further study.
