Fondazione Luigi Micheletti

Fondazione Luigi Micheletti is a library, an archive and a research centre on contemporary history,
specialized on collecting and spreading material and immaterial heritage of the 20th and 21st
century. In particular, scientific research and heritage selection aim to preserve and study the
ideologies of the 20th century, the ambivalence of technical progress and the origin of
environmentalism. FLM hosts a very rich collection of writings, postcards, photos, posters, videos,
audio documents, but also objects and memorabilia. FLM promoted the musil – Museum of Industry
and Labour of Brescia, including three museum – on cinema, iron and hydroelectric. One of our
leading activities is the Luigi Micheletti Award, since 1996 the European award dedicated to
museums of science, industry and contemporary history.
«Learning from the Past» is a way to learn how to make our activities fresher and more participated.
That’s our hope, that’s our engagement.
