STORIA DI STORIE

Proseguono i festeggiamenti per i 90 anni di fondazione dell’Ente (1927 – 2017). 

Grazie all’eccezionale collaborazione con i cittadini del territorio, chiamati a diventare veri e propri coautori del progetto espositivo, verranno presentate al pubblico le fotografie e le testimonianze di giardinieri, custodi, sposi, scolaresche e visitatori che hanno vissuto ed amato Villa Carlotta, lasciando un segno che merita di essere ricordato. 
La mostra non rappresenta un punto di arrivo, ma un’importante tappa di un percorso che nei prossimi anni porterà alla costituzione di un archivio della Memoria Storica di Villa Carlotta a cui tutti visitatori sono chiamati a dare il proprio fondamentale contributo.
