The intangible heritage of the Abegg Silk Museum In the Lecco area, until the late 1920s, silk production dominated the local economy and people’s lives. In order not to lose the life testimonies of the workers, now very old, the Liberi Sogni Cooperative and the Abegg Silk Museum undertook a project to recover and preserve the working memory of their territory. After careful ethnographic research, a team of historians interviewed the silk workers and searched the archives for documents and work songs of the time. The multimedia content created – interviews, historical documents, images, historical videos, songs, infographics – were divided into macro themes (the machines, the workers, silkworm breeding) to create a multimedia storytelling. A Web Strategy action for the enhancement of cultural heritage.
