The Martinsicuro Ecomuseum of the Sea and of Fishing in Abruzzo is a positive example of preserving and promoting maritime cultural heritage at local level, according to the Interreg Europe programme.
The good practice is a positive example of preserving and promoting maritime cultural heritage at local level. It is important to highlight the key role of the local authority and the Martinpescatori association in creating an ecomuseum that presents, protects and preserves the collective memory of the local fishing community. The organisation of cultural events and educational activities are also essential elements of the practice. This ecomuseum has inspired the creation of other museums on the same topic in Italy and can provide helpful insight to other coastal areas interested to preserve and exhibit their maritime cultural heritage.
