Interreligious Museum Bertinoro

The Interreligious Museum was officially born in 2005 in the wake of the 1995 Mediterraneum inter-university agreement, signed between the universities of Bologna, Thessalonica, Tunis, Ankara, Heidelberg, Jerusalem, the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Pontifical Antonianum University and following which there is a clear need to create a space where monotheistic cultures and religions could meet, get to know each other and dialogue, combining the value of tolerance and respect. Since then, the museum has been housed in the oldest parts of the Rocca Vescovile di Bertinoro: the dungeons and the cistern, dating back to the 12th century.

The Foundation

In all its activities, the Museum is managed by the “Interreligious Museum of Bertinoro” Foundation, established in 2005 and made up of the Diocese of Forlì - Bertinoro, the Municipality of Bertinoro and the Bertinoro University Residential Center (Ce.U.B.).

Operational Structure

The management and activities of the Museum are entrusted to the director Enrico Bertoni, responsible for the scientific contents, the planning of the projects and their implementation, as well as the administrative reporting. The educational activity for schools is entrusted to Lisa Turroni, head of the Didactic Secretariat, which takes care of contacts with schools, the promotion of the "Zero Km Museum" project, the reception of groups, guided visits to schools and individual visitors.
