In 2020 the Ethnographic Museum of the Muggio Valley celebrates its 40th anniversary.
To mark this important anniversary and the link with the territory, the exhibition event Frontier pieces. Geographies and imagery of the border will be inaugurated.
The territory of the Muggio Valley is characterized by the presence of geographical limits and boundaries. Here the border, more than a barrier, represents a familiar element and a space of interaction full of contrasts, but also of meetings and exchanges. From the borders visible in the landscape and linked to traditional agricultural practices and the use of a territory with unique peculiarities in Switzerland, this exhibition broadens the view of current events and the world to reflect on the complexity of borders and the imaginary boundaries between past and present. The border as a receptacle for stories and a crossroads of destinies.
The exhibition can be visited at Casa Cantoni in Cabbio, home of the Museum, from 17 May to 1 November 2020. The exhibition will be present until 2022 and will be accompanied by a series of events and initiatives in the territory. For information: www.mevm.ch
