Iron Valley tells the historical stratifications of the area through four paths: the geographical and historical context, the era of steel and iron, the following deindustrialization and the contemporary challenge of the regeneration. The paths are available through a dual system equipped with material (totem) and immaterial (web site and app) exhibitions. Iron Valley is a project by Public History that suggests to promote the active involvement of citizens in the creation of new contents and new stories about the history of industry, the history of work and about the memories of this place.
