EGEA Eco-Museum - A light on memory
EGEA recounts the historical events behind the birth of the inclusive and varied community of Fertilia
In particular, the OFFICINE pavilion tells of the Exodus of The Istrians, Fiumans and Dalmatians, some of whom landed on the shores of the Calich Lagoon.
These populations found the ideal place to rebuild their homes in the "City of Foundation", despite the interruptions caused by the outbreak of the Second World War.
The Museum strives to make known the history of a land made fertile by the work of man; a land that welcomed people from Sardinia, Alghero, Ferrara, Veneto, Istria, Fiume, Dalmatia, those repatriated from Libya, Eritrea, Corsica and numerous other people who came at different times from every corner of the globe.
This Museum aims to "keep a light on memory" and to "bring together the threads of history" for all those who have been forced by overwhelming historical events to leave their birthplace in search of a new landing place in which to carry out their existence in freedom.
Alghero Ticket includes admission to the museum.
