geo centre immaginario geografico
In 2008, the former dairy of Malnisio di Montereale Valcellina was turned into the Geo Centre Immaginario Geografico (IG), an innovative interactive and multimedia centre focusing on geography, landscape and environmental issues.
Located just a few hundred metres from the Museo della Centrale & Science Centre Immaginario Scientifico, the Geo Centre consists of three rooms whose floor is covered with giant high-definition orthophotos of the area of Malnisio, Valcellina and the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. All the people making trips in this area should visit the centre: through big interactive boards visitors can interact with maps, places, mountains and lakes “touching” the areas and choosing their itineraries.
Also, they can walk on the orthophotos with comfortable slippers to recognise, rediscover, look and get to know the area, the region and our planet in a different way.
The tools of the old dairy production plant are scattered here and there between maps and exhibits: they are small and big objects telling the exciting adventure of the dairy and the people working there.
28 giugno 2008 – inauguration day: before the ceremony in power station, then visiting IG
The museum also organises several activities for schools, such as:
GUIDED VISITS and theme tours for school groups to discover the local and regional area with orthophotos.
DEMONSTRATIONS AND EXPERIMENTAL ACTIVITIES: the Science Centre provides a broad range of workshops to arouse curiosity about science through informal education activities. By using common objects and simple experimental equipment, 6 to 18 year olds can learn different scientific topics, such as Earth sciences, ecology, chemistry and nutrition.
NAVIS: the Science Centre comes to you directly in your school, with workshops organized to be held in class, to stimulate group work.
IMAGINABLE: museum tours and workshops targeting the disabled.
