Educational experiences

Cervia has seen the birth of MUSA, the salt museum, dedicated to the local reality. Place of identity, in which knowledge, activities, characters and history find a suitable storage space but from which knowledge, activities, characters and history must also move outwards to reach those in the local community and those who come from other realities.

The educational experience offered by the museum is aimed at young people living on the territory and elsewhere through training courses carried out in association with the Gruppo Culturale Civiltà Salinara, the Atlantide cooperative and other local cultural associations.
