The best gift: ten years of sharing

                          December 21 2017

    The ecomuseum for ten years has been the place where the sharing among people, institutions, associations and companies is facilitated to create communities and to release new energy for sustainable development. Ten years in which we has exchanged intellectual and moral gifts, time, know-how and know to see. Actors and spectators, thanks to everyone who enthusiastically welcomed the invitation to work together. Only together can we can realize a dream: to continue sharing resources, time, knowledge and skills to make our cities live and make our landscape more beautiful and habitable.

    Merry Christmas and Happy 2018 year of participation!
