Piazza Libertà 2 Sciacca (AG) – Italy

We are a "Museo Diffuso," which means that Sciacca itself is our open-air museum. Here, every element of the city, including its people with their stories, represents our priceless treasure, ready to be shared with anyone who comes to visit us.

The impacts that the Museo Diffuso dei 5 Sensi (essentially, a Scattered Museum) has on the community encompass economic, cultural, social, and environmental dimensions.


From an economic perspective, we've demonstrated our influence on tourism activities. The number of nights booked by tourists has increased, often simply after we've shared the experiences they could enjoy. Additionally, we've attracted tourists beyond the traditional tourist seasons, thanks to year-round activities. 

This, of course, extends benefits throughout the entire region. Tourists staying longer have more time to explore local businesses, purchase quality products, and indulge in culinary curiosities at bars and restaurants. 

The growth in the number of experiences now offered reflects the community's confidence in the Scattered Museum project and its ability to meet expectations. Furthermore, as the variety of available experiences expands, the entire destination becomes more attractive to a diverse range of tourists seeking empathetic, exciting, and transformative moments. These are the tourists with greater spending capacity, as they recognize the value that this land offers.


Culturally, we've opened common treasures that have been visited by thousands of people, enhancing the overall appeal and reputation of the destination. We've also made a collective heritage of immeasurable value available and shared. In addition to the Grotte Vaporose, we've opened the Museum Diocesano, the Chiesa della Badia Grande, and the Torre Campanaria of the Chiesa di San Michele. All these efforts were carried out in collaboration with partners and associations that have jointly ensured the accessibility of these treasures. 

The number of experiences booked through the Scattered Museum underscores the protection, enhancement, and sharing of knowledge, which become tools for economic sustainability. In doing so, these treasures come alive again in the eyes, minds, and hearts of those who come from afar.


On the social front, we've forged a multitude of new connections that have made our community more interconnected and aware. For example, when a pastry chef, a pizzaiolo, and a cook work together with our millers to find a blend of ancient grain flours suitable for creating completely unique products, they aren't just creating new products; they're fostering new synergies among people, knowledge, and passions within the community. These collaborations strengthen relationships, reconnecting the weakened ties that we lost during the pandemic. They also increase our capacity to face the daily challenges of an increasingly complex reality. 

Moreover, new developments reinforce positive supply chains, as mentioned earlier. Croissants, pizzas, and pastries made with ancient grains rejuvenate the cultural culinary tradition without distorting it. Simultaneously, they contribute to making the region more appealing to travelers who appreciate innovation, authenticity, and a deep connection with the local offerings in terms of accommodations and dining.

Environmental conservation has also become a development strategy. Our environment has transitioned from a constraint to an opportunity. 


Environmental associations have become an integral part of the tourism offering, exemplified by the Oasi Marevivo of Eraclea Minoa. Accommodations have committed to replacing disposable soaps with locally produced, eco-friendly liquid soap made from olives or citrus blossoms. These unique and original dispensers are crafted by ceramicists from the community cooperative in accordance with the preferences of bed and breakfasts. Hospitality has improved, and the quality of a specific target of tourists who are interested in visiting has increased because the destination is becoming increasingly environmentally friendly. Experiences related to slow tourism have been developed to meet the demands of a green market. Moreover, the community's endogenous resources have been valued to develop a local supply chain supported by the various activities of the cooperative community members (food in bed and breakfasts, products in stores, tastings at experiences, products consumed in restaurants).
