Exploring the museums of the Oltrepò mantovano
Esplorare i musei dell’Oltrepò mantovano
The charm of a borderland, of a landscape in evolution told with an emphasis on locations that preserve and promote cultural identity. Accompanied by illustrations by Giacomo Bagnara and by several infographics and photographs, this book represents an attempt to talk about the Oltrepò mantovano through the museums that convey local art and history, science and technology, ethnography and environment. An essential journey in search of a land that is rich in culture and tradition; one that expresses its essence through its differences, making them distinctive and fundamental traits.
Part of a larger project that started with the Oltrepò mantovano consortium and which is preceded by A Taste for Exploring the Oltrepò mantovano – an unconventional guide brimming with information on local products–, this book rounds off the journey, gathering directions for curious travellers who are drawn to the culture of this area that is lapped by the slow waters of the Po.
