Area Waterways Martesana (Lombardy) – Ecomuseum Martesana
MAP OF THE COMMUNITY ‘THE PLACE OF MEMORIES’ OF ECOMUSEUM MARTESANA
The idea of a parish map was born in England in 1987 from Sue Clifford, Angela King, Roger Dreakin with non-profit organization Common Ground. The parish map is a paper and digital tool that represent a landscape from the point of view of the local community. The aim of map is to enhance of ‘local specificities’ of the cultural heritage and landscape through community involvement.
The goal is the create an archive of the cultural heritage and landscape and starting a policy of management of territory by the local community.
We realized the parish map (to be expanded) of Ecomuseum Martesana in partnership with Ecomuseum Martesana, Habitat_Scenari Possibili, R.A.M.I (Multidisciplinary Artistic Residence Ilinxarium), Percorsi di Comunicazione Off.ed and Region Lombardy.
The map collects, through words and images, the places of the Martesana Canal that the people involved remember most fondly. A brief, but intense, ‘journey in the soul’ of the Martesana Canal (Lombardy).
