|Abstract: ||Geoethics has among its objectives to promote the recognition and enhancement of geological culture, as a wealth
of knowledge that can contribute to the construction of a proper social knowledge, strengthening the link between
population and territory and offering the opportunity to teach, especially the young, good behavior towards the
The work here proposed is an example of how to promote knowledge, awareness and appreciation of its territory by
use of innovative and multidisciplinary educational programs; paths that allow young people to redraw the places
to returning them to the communities that live there as a common heritage to be lived and protect.
The experience described refers to the realization of the pilot project "Towards an Eco Museum of the Castelli
Romani". The project, proposed and implemented by a group of researchers of the Laboratory of Education and
Science Communication of National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) in collaboration with the
Regional Park of the Castelli Romani, involved students of the Classic and Psycho-Pedagogical High School of
the Mancinelli Falcone Institute of Velletri (RM).
Educational activities carried out in the academic year 2009-2010, were structured on multidisciplinary training
programs designed to create eco museum routes.
These training programs have been grouped into three main areas (historical, archaeological and literary, geological
and town planning, ecological and naturalistic) that are particularly representative of the complexity of geological
and anthropological territory of the Nemi Lake.
The eco-museum is a revolutionary concept compared to traditional museum because it adds to the traditional museum
the social dimension. The environment is described through history, culture, landscapes, activities, society
putting in relation to aspects of life, material and spiritual, and tying them to the places, territories and the culture
that created them.
Very often the age of globalization takes us to lose sight of the concept of place in favor of the non-place, an
environment free of characteristics and boundaries.
This trend, if on one hand helps to share problems and solutions related to environmental protection, other hand
risks producing a variety of effects that lead communities to disown the values of their territory.
Instead the experience realized takes us in an opposite direction.
We believe that educational projects structured on eco museum itineraries can promote in young people an experiential
path of rediscovery and enhancement of the territory (genius loci).
The active techniques used in the project (dramatization, creative writing, music, etc.) favored boys in the acquisition
of knowledge and skills that allow enhance of territorial resources and sharing it with the community.|
