Documents and research

Traditions and Rituals of the territory

The Museo della Terra of Latera, has been following its mission since it was first established, paying close attention to documenting and researching the most important aspects of the material and intangible local heritage.
Festivities, traditional work practices and oral traditions have been studied and documented under the supervision of the Museum’s scientific division.
The outcome of these efforts, like pictures, videos and recordings, are preserved in the Museum’s archives, available to be consulted and studied. Over the years, by sourcing this significant amount of data, the Musuem has promoted the production of a series of publications and impromptu exhibits.
