The theater landscape

"The theater of the landscape" is the evocative name chosen for the new stage of cultural territory: the valuable work of Antonio Adriano joins the modern technologies and immersive simulations to renew the account of the environment and territory. The result is an interactive museum, in continuous dialogue with "his" room. An eye on the past, but look to the future of the territory crossed by the Tanaro

The museum, in short

The museum is spread on the main floor of the castle, next to the existing Museum of the Plasters. Dell'allestimento aim is to narrate, through emblematic and evocative culture objects and documents, and especially thanks to interactive multimedia systems, the hilly landscape and the river Langa and Roero.
In particular, the Museum aims to illustrate and critically investigate the recent period marked by deep and often disruptive changes that have disrupted the signs and rhythms constituent space-time that define the ethnic traits of the region of investigation. To do this, the project identifies some thematic areas around which to develop the story: the memory, the hills, the river, the stone, the conscience.
The exhibition allows the visitor to "dip" into the landscape making different time paths: for instance, can navigate the Tanaro in a scenario of the early twentieth century, when the river was populated by fishermen, ferrymen and maceration of hemp, walking between rows of a vineyard to understand its changes over time and how these affected the local landscape. But it will also go into the future, to see the effects that the choices in the economic, productive, constructive can determine the territory.
