Projects
The Ecomuseum is actively collaborating with the local administrations and other public bodies on various strategic projects in the fields of culture, environment and tourism. These include:     
Development by the participating Municipalities of a 120 km long network of pathways  in the territorial area of the Ecomuseum. The pathways have specific themes including: 
  •      Nature and landscape
  •      Archaeological sites
  •      Ancient village churches, villas, castles and  medieval villages
  •      Agricultural estates and rural buildings
  •      Ancient and medieval routes
  •      Knowledge, professions and local traditions 
Some routes will include facilities for people with special needs, including the provision of signposts in Braille. In keeping with the philosophy of environmental protection and sustainability, the network of pathways will be utilisable for trips on foot, on horseback or by bicycle, but not by  motorised vehicles. The Ecomuseum, along with local bodies, the Italian Alpine Club and associations operating in the area, is actively involved in the promotion of the pathways project. The scientific team of the Ecomuseum proposes various routes for nature lovers, designed to stimulate learning through exploration of the natural beauty of the territory.
  • Creation and installation by the Province of Perugia of appropriate road signs and information placards which will make it easier to reach the main points of access to this network. Some of these signposts have already been installed, all the signposts will carry the logo of the Ecomuseum, defining the identity of the area. 
  • Creation by the Municipality of Perugia of a large green zone in the locality of the ancient aqueduct of Monte Pacciano. The management of the green zone will be undertaken by the Ecomuseum in collaboration with volunteers from Associations operating in the area.
  • Creation, with the participation of Umbra Acque and the Municipality of Perugia, of the Museo dell’Acqua and of a multicultural centre of documentation, studies and research on the territory in the building known as the “house of the Monk Caretaker” of the ancient aqueduct of Monte Pacciano, which has been completely renovated. The Museo dell’Acqua and the multicultural centre will be managed by the Ecomuseum in collaboration with the Municipality of Perugia, the University of Perugia, Umbra Acque, the P.O.S.T.  and Sistema Museo.
