The Museum of Man and Environment in Terra del Sole offers a wide range of opportunities for both visiting and educational purposes.
The main purpose of the Terra del Sole Pro Loco is to unveil, through various itineraries, the beauties and rarities contained within the four bastions and the nearly five hundred years of history they preserve.
To this end, different proposals have been created according to the needs of those who visit Terra del Sole, considering their age, interests etc..


A) Guided tour at M.U.A. (Museum of Man and Environment)

Lasting approximately one and a half hours, the guided tour at M.U.A. is one of the most interesting offerings of our museum located in the ancient spaces of the Palace of the Grand Ducal Commissioners . Spanning over 25 rooms, it is designed as a journey through the millennia-long history of settlements in the Montone river valley, from prehistoric times to the present day, with a particular focus on the Terra del Sole and Castrocaro Terme area.
B) Guided tour of the Fortress - City of Terra del Sole

Lasting approximately one hour.
This is the most historically focused itinerary, aimed at connecting visitors with the immense heritage of Terra del Sole. With the city-fortress retaining much of its original appearance since its foundation in 1564, the tour includes a visit to the buildings of Terra del Sole, starting from the Piazza d'Armi. Visitors will then embark on a journey back in time, exploring the vaults of the Palace of the Grand Ducal Commissioners with its nine "prisions", experiencing the ancient spirituality of the seventeenth-century church, and moving from the sacred to the secular by exploring the hidden gun emplacements in the bastions*. With their imposing maneuvering areas, these impressive military structures from the sixteenth century are true gems of military art. Other highlights of this "walk through time" include the Castles of the Captain of the Square and the Captain of the Artillery, as well as the small villages that open before them.

*The visit to the bastions and gun emplacements is subject to prior reservation and evaluation by the guide of the accessibility of the areas to be visited, depending on weather conditions.

C) Visit to the Costumes Room of the Palio di S. Reparata with outfits from the court of the Grand Ducal Commissioner and viewing of a video from the collection "Lost Crafts" or "The Factory of Terra del Sole."

Lasting 30/45 minutes, it's a dive into memories to connect students with a series of jobs that are no longer practiced and whose memory risks fading away. Through a comprehensive video archive, with the titles listed below from which one can choose based on their interest, students can open a door to a not-so-distant past that, due to the rapid pace of modernizations, deserves to be examined with the same perspective as ancient artifacts. This video section is one of the museum's highlights as it represents a cultural heritage whose value increases day by day, becoming one of the few direct testimonies of the past that can be viewed. It is essential for anyone interested in approaching an anthropological study of our region.

D) Use of the educational classroom and laboratory, guided by a teacher

It is possible to choose differentiated paths for primary school and lower secondary school students from the following list of activities:

Educational modules

1. The Kitchen: Center of Domestic Life.
Workshop: Making Piadina (Dough and Production).
This is a very fun module designed to educate students about the multifunctional value that the kitchen has played and still plays in certain cases. Through the preparation of piadina, students will be engaged as a cook than just spectators, experiencing an essential food of the Romagna region. This activity is sure to stimulate and capture their interest.

2. The Wine Cellar.
Workshop: The Wine Cycle (Painting the Glass).
The "Wine Cellar" module is designed to go beyond a simple visit and show students the intricate and laborious process from grape to wine. It is undoubtedly fascinating, not only for the students but also for the accompanying adults. As a related activity, students will have the opportunity to decorate a glass.

3. Ancient Artisan Crafts.
Workshop: Rust Printing (Printing a Placemat).
This activity is often talked about, and we are delighted to offer it here in our museum. Rust printing on canvas is one of the distinctive products that characterize our region. Universally loved and appreciated as an artistic craft, it is unfortunately part of the disappearing traditions. Through this workshop, students will learn the ancient and refined art of printing and create their own decorated placemat.

4. Roman Tombs.
Workshop: Decoration of a Terracotta Artifact.
This workshop is dedicated to the archaeological section of the museum. Through the decoration of the glass, students will be introduced to the fascinating Roman history, its customs, and traditions.

5. Puzzle.
Workshop: Interlocking game linked to the modules of the ethno-anthropological path. Connected to the ethno-anthropological visit, it is a fun moment for testing and assimilating the learned concepts.

6. Eliopolis - The Game of History.
Workshop: Path game for learning history. This workshop is very interesting because through a real board game designed and created specifically for the museum, students will learn about the history of Terra del Sole in a different and more engaging way compared to traditional history lessons.

In relation to the chosen educational module (1 - 2 - 3 - 4), each student will keep as their own property whatever they produce during the workshop. For educational modules 5 and 6, each participant will receive a puzzle as a gift.

E) Use of the educational classroom and laboratory with guided tour

This is a variation of proposal D. In addition, it includes the possibility of conducting a museum tour simultaneously with the laboratory activity, which serves as support and deepening of the educational activities.
