Museum Multiplicities: Field Actions and Research by Design collects experimental works led by several research teams involved in the MeLa Project—gathered in the first section of the volume, titled “actions”—as well as scholars and students in Architecture attending the Politecnico di Milano—organised in a section called “Research by design”— all of whom share the common purpose of challenging the traditional idea of exhibition and introduce participative practices able to promote a better cultural integration and dialogue. The theme running throughout the essays presented in the book relates to finding applicative strategies and promoting practices which enhance the awareness of a collective identity of people living in Europe—whether they be part of communities historically rooted in a certain territory or groups of recent immigrants—and the understanding of differences. The adoption of a transcultural perspective, however, may be the key for a further enrichment of the material and immaterial heritage of the continent, as well as a more effective conservation and enhancement of this patrimony, and a real social integration.
