The Centrale Montemartini participated in this European project together with four other museums from Portugal, France and Germany, which are also housed in industrial buildings of archaeological interest.
The Euromusées 2001 project, started in early January 1999 as part of the European Commission’s “Raphael” program, is intended to establish the basis for a European web of museum institutions created in industrial buildings of archaeological interest.
The Centrale Montemartini participated in the program in the program along with the Museu de Electricidade di Lisbona, the Musée d’Art et d'Industrie di Roubaix, the Neues Museum Weserburg and the Städtische Galerie im Buntentor of Brema.
These ancient spaces, which are often found in a state of abandonment, contribute today, with their architectural heritage, the memories that connect them to labour and with their new usage, to the socio-cultural development of the historic areas in which they are found.
As part of the project, co-ordinated by Eurocultures (Brussels) with the collaboration of the Civic Association (Rome) and the technical assistance of Sindnova (Rome), a website and a CD-Rom have been produced
