Language: Multilingual

A film about a community project of safeguarding the living culture of Rovinj - The Batana Ecomuseum.
The batana, a traditional fishing boat important to Rovinj's trade and heritage, became scarce with the popularity of industrial models but in 2004, not-for-profit House of Batana decided to help safeguard it and its associated practices by opening the Batana Ecomuseum. With support from the municipality, Italian Community of Rovinj, Heritage Museum of the City of Rovinj, Rovinj Historic Research Centre and an eco-museology expert it has a permanent exhibition on batana culture, a shipyard and hosts workshops and regattas.
