In Italy, the academic and professional practice of Museum Anthropology has frequently crossed its path with that of so-called “spontaneous museography”. Its passionate and charismatic actors, auto-didactic researchers active all over the Country since the Seventies, share the objective of preserving and promoting material and immaterial documentation on the Italian pre-industrial way of life.
Simbdea has a long history of dialogue, research, collaboration and reflection on their objectives, aesthetics, methods and realizations. Members of our association are professional, academic as well as “spontaneous” museographers.
The reciprocal influence the two fields have had on each other contributed to the enlarged and complex vision of “cultural heritage” that Simbdea “naturally” inherited from its anthropological perspective, and that is distinctive of the stand from which we continue exploring and collaborating to national and international museographic pratice.
Such a dialogue still consists in a crucial basis for possible further experimentation and collaboration, as well as for a long-awaited recognition of the significant and vital “alternative heritage” to which, globally, many undisciplined, provocative practices direct our attention.
