Ecomuseums are cultural bodies and institutions that ensure, within a given territory and thanks to the participation of local communities, the functions of research, conservation, protection and enhancement of a set of cultural assets, of both a tangible and an intangible nature, representing an environment, landscape, territory and the ways of life that have followed and accompanied its development.
They are also an instrument of popular participation for the management of the territory and the development of the community: the Ecomuseum is, indeed, a pact with which the community takes care of the local area.
