Main Article Content

Marta Pascolini Roberta Altin


The report aims to provide a critical assessment after seven years of a participatory museum action carried out in an ethnographic museum that is part of a regional ecomuseum network in north-eastern Italy, in the Friulian foothills of the western Dolomites. From 2016 to 2021, the Maniago Museum of Blacksmith’s Art and Cutlery has started a process of research in the places of previous work phases - now mostly used for other functions - to build a participatory map of memories with an intersectional approach, which then assumed the form of a “mobile” section of the museum’s permanent exhibition. The layout and interactive mode chosen represent a work in progress of anthropology applied to heritage, with a particular awareness of activating subaltern memories, especially gendered ones.
