In the Ecomuseum it is possible to identify different ICH domains expressions (language, social practices, ritual and festive events, performative arts, etc), inside a multiethnic context. The Ecomuseo Casilino is the only institution, present in this contexte supporting the various communities of practices, promoting the knowledge of their heritage, involving the different communities in its safeguarding and enhancement.
The Co.Heritage program of the Ecomuseum Casilino develops research activities with the various local communities (Italian, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Afghan, Maghrebine etc.) aimed at identifying those social customs, community events, narratives that represent the product of interaction/dialogue between the different communities (Italian and migrant) within local cultures.
The Ecomuseo Casilino carries out research, narration and safeguarding activities directly with the communities of practitioners. Individuals, groups and communities are therefore directly involved in the project activities.
