The last day before leaving Rome, the five REcall workshop teams have presented a summary of the work undergone during the week: all groups had interesting suggestions for their working sites and each of them also presented a good collection of documents and information gathered during the stay. This was due the incredible collaborative approach of Routes Agency who assisted POLIMI to arrange the workshop.

REcall publication

Re-enacting the past
Museography for conflict heritage

The book takes inspiration from one of the most significant subject of debates of the recent years, that is to say the role of memory connected with Conflict Heritage. Linked as they are to unpleasant stories, they represent a patrimony that is difficult to manage. However, we believe they have the potential to resonate beyond their local contexts and work toward the construction of a collective identity on a European scale. This book presents a critical anthology of essays for the first time grouped in according to three main topics, archaeology, art and museography, and offers different approaches and new perspectives on the theme of Conflict Heritage.

The work, edited by Michela Bassanelli and Gennaro Postiglione, is published by LetteraVentidue and results from the previous research “Museography for Conflict Archaeology” that merged (and inspired) in “REcall-project”.

We hope this Reader will critically contribute to the on-going discussion about Conflict and Difficult Heritage.
