CULTURAL DIPLOMACY – CULTURAL FOCAL POINTS

Perigeo, since its foundation, has considered the human being as a red line for its action

The projects “Museums without Borders” and “The deep roots do not freeze” are an important example of this concept 

Meeting up with ITSTIME, a research center of the Università Cattolica of Milan, has allowed to develop the medium of the Cultural Focal Point (CFP) in order to take more effective action in contexts of post-conflict and crisis areas.

The Cultural Focal Point is:

static: as a museum represents the cultural process and shows the artifacts that they produce

dynamic: it is the  meeting place where what is presereved is produced, encourages dialogue and the vertical transmission of the memory, teaches “how to do”  

singular: it underlines the cultural peculiarities of a single community that, by strenghtening its own identity, gains awareness and resilience and express themselves as a “competent node” of the global network

plural: every community comes into the necessary relationship with the other communities (the other nodes of the network) keeping the mutual relationships that are useful for the sustainability of the projects
