Carpinguerra. The war in the city 1940-45. Guided tour of the city, with the support of the App created by ITIS da Vinci of Carpi and IIS Venturi of Modena.
Carpi is an open-air museum in which specific places - among all the Deportee Memorial Museum and Fossoli Camp - and the many traces scattered in the urban space, built a unique fabric of testimonies of the Second World War. The itinerary developes itself through the city center and identifies some focuses: the places of power (such as Casa del Fascio and Casa del Podestà) and the places of solidarity (such as Vescovado); the war gardens, green areas that were converted to agricultural areas in time of war; the largest air raid shelter in the city, in use since March 1944 to the end of the war; the train station, from which the convoys of deportees left for the Nazi concentration camps; the monument dedicated to the massacre in piazza Martiri, etc. These sites are an opportunity to highlight the historical-artistic value of the cultural heritage and to address specific themes they evoke (deportation, civil war, food, bombing, call to arms, consensus / dissent within the ages of the Second World War).

Virtual and interactive visit to the Diffused Museum of Carpi”, winner of "Io amo I Beni Culturali - VII edition" ideas competition, promoted by the Institute for Cultural and Natural Artistic Heritage (IBC), Region E-R.
