A new concept of a museum, open, digital, and inclusive.
Since 1978, the Civic Museum has been a cultural offering in the city of Vignola, serving as an important reference point for the study, research, and enhancement of the geo-paleontological heritage of the Panaro Valley.
The exhibition is divided into two main sections: one focusing on paleontology and another on geo-mineralogy, with a brief section on paleoanthropology. The visit has been designed following an educational approach: a general introduction to the topic followed by a section dedicated to the local findings displayed in their relevant environment.
Thanks to the funding obtained from the “Open Air Museum” project, all these objectives were achieved, and the Museum has transformed into a welcoming, engaging, and accessible place for learning and discovery.
Idea-re supported the Municipality of Vignola in accessing public funding provided by the DOORS project, Digital incubator for museums, financed by the EU Horizon 2020 program, under the cascade funding scheme. The program targets small museums throughout Europe and is managed on behalf of the EU by the Austrian company Ars Electronica.
The “Open Air Museum” project is the only one in Italy to have successfully passed a rigorous European selection process and reached the final phase of project implementation.
The Open Air Museum will receive a non-refundable grant of €27,000 for the development of a digitization and gamification project aimed at primary and secondary school children.
