Childbirth and Childbearing among the Friulian Peasantry

Free guided tour on Saturday May 21, 2016 at the Museo Etnografico del Friuli During the course of this fascinating tour, visitors will be introduced to two important figures whose accounts bear witness to the customs and medical practices related to childbearing in the rural communities of Friuli.

Museums without Borders

At the proposal of the Polo Museale del Friuli Venezia Giulia, the Civici Musei (City Museums) of Udine have joined "Museums without Borders", an initiative which aims to promote the “improvement of the knowledge and dissemination of the culture and history of the European peoples” in accordance with the principles set out in the Lisbon Treaty. This international agreement applies to Slovenia, Croatia and Italy and entitles visitors from these member states (in this case, Slovenia and Croatia) to obtain a 50% discount on ticket prices at participating museums, provided that these visitors are in possession of a valid ticket (free or purchased) issued by one of the other participating museums in the preceding 20 days. This reduction applies only when the original ticket is either a single or family ticket.

Extended exhibitions "Deportees" and "light on"

A few more days for those who have not yet visited the exhibits at project galleries and the ethnographic museum. DEPORTED. The deportation policy from Friuli (1943-45) Photo-documentary exhibition created by CDC in partnership with the civic museums of Udine, ANED and Friulian Institute for the history of the liberation movement, then provided with open until April 24 to allow a few more days to those who have not yet had the opportunity to admire it."Deported" is a journey of remembrance that relives the experiences of Nazi concentration camps by opponents to the fascist regime. A path to tell how from Friuli, through imprisonment and torture and suffering untold, there were deported and, in many cases, tragic deaths.

Via di comunicazione e crocevia di popoli nel 6000 a.C.

October 11, 2014-February 22, 2015

The purpose of the exhibition was to showcase the most important finds arising from several decades of archaeological investigations in the eastern Adriatic on the part of Italian, Croatian and Slovenian archaeologists. Conceived within the scope of the annual Riunione Scientifica dell’Istituto Italiano di Preistoria e Protostoria (Scientific Meeting of the Italian Institute of Prehistory and Protohistory), the exhibition was held under the patronage of the President of the Republic. An introductory section displayed finds discovered by the Archaeological Museum of Split following excavations on the most remote island of the Adriatic, Pelagruza, recalled by the writer Paolo Rumiz in his series Racconti Estivi (Summer Tales) published in the Repubblica in the summer of 2014. The discovery of fragments of pottery dating back to 6000 BC on the island provides exemplary proof of nautical navigation during the period, a period so historically remote in time. While relatively small, the Adriatic is nonetheless a particularly perilous sea to navigate, as yachtsman Andrea Stella explained in a film interview accompanying the exhibition. If it is difficult and dangerous today, we can only imagine the challenges it posed back then when it was crossed by dugout canoes equipped with rudimentary stabilizers.

adriatico invito

The exhibition provided the opportunity to marvel at, admire, and compare archaeological artifacts of considerably ancient provenance and yet, despite their age, remarkably modern in both form and decoration. It is in fact during this time that man progresses from hunter-gatherer to farmer and animal breeder and begins to make his first clay vessels. While those produced around 6000 BC are primitive and simply decorated with shells around the rim, those produced but 400 years later are intricately decorated with curvilinear motifs. The exhibition, the first in the Museum’s history to provide complete disability access, also offered guided visits in English, German and Slovenian, provided by the Museum’s education team.

Venues for hire

Rich in history, versatile, and fully functional, the CIVICI MUSEI in UDINE are the ideal place to hold special events such as conferences, meetings, and previews.
