Following the recognition of Ivrea as a Unesco Industrial city of the twentieth century, some cultural actors of the city came together to develop a path that imagines the future of the city, reinterprets it, and creates events to understand cultural needs and train operators.
Mission and Purpose
Following Unesco recognition of the industrial city, Ivrea, a group of socio-cultural operators came online to develop a common project aimed at seizing the moment as an opportunity for themselves and the territory.
Origins and Development
Operations began in June of 2019.
Organizational Structure, Membership and Financing
The network of communities with which the project started is composed of some of the main cultural organizations of the city of Ivrea:
- Public Cultural Association-08
- PA Garda Museum
- Zac! - Active areas of citizenship
- Natale Capellaro Foundation and Technologically Museum Laboratory
- The Fifth Enlargement Association
- Cooperative Alce Rosso
- Association Il Contato del Canavese
This configuration is strengthened by the presence of some associated partners who share the planned purposes and collaborate in the operational implementation of some project actions:
All the cultural organizations involved, both public and private, have accepted the proposal to start working in a systemic logic, with the aim of overcoming a historical fragmentation that has often limited both the creative potential of the local cultural scene and the participation itself of the audience. The common commitment is therefore to create an increasingly solid "IVREA18-2096" community, which over time becomes a reference for:
- launching new processes of cultural participation;
- favouring dynamics of exchange and collaboration between the subjects involved in the network;
- making the community autonomous in the management of the initiatives launched;
- contributing to the sustainability of the same initiatives over time 
Specializations, Methods and Tools
The network is composed of subjects who specialize in the organization of cultural events; in recreational and educational activities for young people; care and management of museum structures, workshops, and theaters. In particular, surveys were conducted with questionnaires, a laboratory with 20 young people of imagination, an artistic / performative / training event and a public street event.
Main projects and events
Cittadini Illumina\ti is a meta-project that includes various events (see ).
Analysis and lessons learned
It is a long-term path, which assumes strong aspects of self-organization, both decision-making and implementation. The presence or external role of the public administration in the network's activities is not given.
