Why a museum about urban commons?
gE.CO museum aims at representing a useful tool to increase the knowledge about the raise of generative commons, to discover local needs and to collect information about good practices.
A Museum to inspire new experiences of regeneration of urban voids.
What is the heritage it wants to tell?
The heritage of gE.CO museum is intangible and alive: these are the experiences, stories, practices, experiences, ideas that gave life to the commons we met during the project.
Each of these community places has its own genesis, is born in very different social, cultural and geographical contexts, works by moving between art, social and participation, is governed by personalized governance systems. A wealth of experiences not to be missed.
How it works?
gE.CO museum will be a digital tool, since it will be integrated in the gE.CO map: this way, digital thematic itineraries will be virtual paths over the map, connecting experiences, problems, solutions, and best practices. Moreover, a specific page in the gE.CO website will include all the materials (such as data, infographics, multimedia contents, etc.) and in-depth analysis that will be developed by exploiting the results of the gE.CO survey, and later on of the gE.CO DIY toolkit.
Information, pictures, infographics will be collected in a catalogue and in a travelling exhibit.
How to explore the museum?
