This exhibtion stems from the idea of re-evaluating the area by experimenting with new ways of narrating Argentiera’s history and memories.

MEMORIE is the first hub of the permanent installation. This brings to light the life of the village and its inhabitants inside and outside the mine. A journey that is rebuilt thanks to the contribution of experts and the participation of the local community - that decided to share its private memories to make them a collective memory.

The path starts from the ancient washer and continues winding through the main buildings and old ruins populated with objects and images of past and present. All these objects speak about stories of work, family and everyday life that for over a century have animated the township.
