The Memory Rooms

The new premises of the Fassa Ladin Museum opened in 2001. They house the ethnographic collections of the Ladin Cultural Insitute, the result of twenty years of research. These are concerned with various aspects of Ladin civilization: prehistory, economic activities, the development of political institutions, religious and secular rituals, popular beliefs and traditions, historical dynamics and the deep changes induced by the development of mountaineering and tourism in the last century. The subject of the exhibition reflects the image of a lively and self-aware community with its own language and a unique territory and history. The structure of the exhibition is aimed at a faithful and yet critical rendering of such image. It was designed by the architects Weber and Winterle under the supervision of Ettore Sottsass.

Audio-visual aids

One of the most significant aspects of the exhibition is the Multimedia Support System. The visitor will have access to seventeen information points, controlled by a computer network and featuring interactive touch-screens. Through them visitors gain access to 80 short monothematic films on single objects or aspects of the exhibition, complete with original sound and texts in various languages. The artist Milo Manara has produced a series of drawings that will help the visitor to visualize a number of folktales narrated by Ladin story-tellers.

An itinerary through popular culture

The museum is not confined to its central premises. Instead, it was conceived and planned as a territorial museum. It therefore consists of several local theme-sections set in pre-existing, real ethnographic sites such as: "La Sia" (Venetian style water sawmill) in Penia; "L Molin de Pezol" (18th century mill) in Pera; "L Malghier" (cheese making) in Pera; "L Segat" (the Forestry) in Pozza; "L Stònt" (the Marksmen's lodge) in Campitello.

Bookshop and Museumshop

Publishing is one of the core activities of the Ladin Cultural Institute, with a production that aims at responding to and satisfying the various requests of an heterogeneous public;over four hundred publications and multimedials are on sale in the bookshop, covering a variety of subjects to meet all tastes and interests. Beside publishing, the Museum offers a selection of high quality products, chosen among a series of particularly significant and distinguished objects that represent Ladin culture in its different aspects: gadgets, prints, artistic objects, textile and ceramics products.
