THE ECO-MUSEUMS OF THE BIELLA AREA

This wide network, which counts 15 ecomuseums, endeavors to preserve local traditions, handicrafts, archives and photographs by reconstructing settings from the past. At the forefront of such efforts is the Biellese Ecomuseum, where since 1966 curators have aimed in various ways to protect cultural traditions and at the same time to develop the resources of the area.
