In Italy, we have museums for each topic. I'd like to introduce you something of extravagant...

Castelbosco, Emilia Romagna
The Museum of Shit



Opened in May 2015, the Museo della Merda – or Museum of Shit – showcases projects that span between art and technology, but are all in some way linked to the reuse of organic waste.





The museum is located in Castelbosco, where 2,500 cows produce 30,000 litres of milk as well as 100,000 kilograms of dung. The farm's owner Gianantonio Locatelli created an industrial facility that extracts the methane gas from the manure, which can be burnt as an energy source. His plant also turns the dung into a raw material that can be used as a building product, either as a plaster or fired to form bricks.





Together with architect Luca Cipelletti, curator Gaspare Luigi Marcone and gallerist Massimo Valsecchi, Locatelli created a museum inside a late-medieval castle on the site to showcase the potential uses and benefits of the waste material. "In the museum spaces and castle rooms – and in their digital version – those aesthetic and scientific, human and animal, modern-day and yesteryear experiences are and will be on show, displaying what a useful and living substance crap really is".





Visitors first take a tour around the farm and its production facilities to learn about where the material comes from, and the processes that transform it into a useable material. Inside the renovated castle, the interior has been stripped back to reveal the building's original structure. The ground floor is dedicated to the display of conceptual materials and installations. The spaces are kept warm by engines that generate heat using the methane extracted from the manure, while iron-framed vitrines are partially clad with dung. Plaster made from the muck covers sections of the walls, carefully placed to look as if it is pouring from the ceiling. One wall is mounted with a set of 16 glowing green jars. The light is generated by bioluminescent bacteria that feeds on methane pumped into the vessels, demonstrating that light can be created using entirely natural materials.





Continuing the theme of reuse, old iPads and iMacs display media and information about the exhibits. "The Shit Museum will expand in three dimensions: not only will it remain a physical space to visit, but also a virtual space and an ever-evolving reality," said Cipelletti. "The contents of the Museum will also be loaded onto its online platform, a website which allows for direct and broad interaction with the public, as well as the constant updating of activities, projects and initiatives," he said.

Milano, Lombardia
Castello Sforzesco (Sforza Castle)


Built in 14th-15th century, the castle has an imposing and iconographic aspect. During the Renaissance it was the residence of Milan’s Duke Ludovico Sforza. Leonardo Da Vinci worked there as a military and civil engineer and only later as an artist. He painted the frescoed ceiling of the "Sala delle Asse" (‘room of the wooden panels’), combining a naturalist depiction with a strong symbolism.

The castle hosts a series of civic museums ranging from ancient and Egyptian art to paintings, musical instruments and 21st century furniture. The art gallery displays works by some famous Italian artists such as Mantegna, Giovanni Bellini e Antonello da Messina. Among them a real masterpiece: the ‘Pietà Rondanini’, an unfinished sculpture by Michelangelo on which he worked in the last years of his life.

Milano, Lombardia
Church of Santa Maria del Carmine


The Church of Santa Maria del Carmine is situated in Brera district. The Carmelites, starting from the 14th century, have built a convent with an annexed church. The latter was however destroyed in a fire in 1330. The rebuilt church fell also in abandon before the end of the century, after the friars moved to another convent. The new church was built from 1400, under the design of friar Bernardo da Venezia. Works were completed in 1446. In the mid-15th century, the church became a favourite destination for aristocratic burials, as testified by the numerous noble tombs in the chapels and niches.

The campanile shows Islamic influence, product of syncretism of Apulian Romanesque (which also has other influences: Byzantine, Lombard ...), as happens in the Sicilian Romanesque. Both are made under the domination of the Normans.
