The idea of Progetto LuMe started in 2019 with the aim of safeguarding and preserving the memory of the Bibione Lighthouse.
An intense research work has allowed the collection of autobiographical material never seen before, thanks to the oral testimonies and photographs of the lighthouse keepers and mariners, and of their relatives. The archives of the Italian Military Navy have returned important historical documents and drawings for the reconstruction of the events and the architectural changes of the Lighthouse over time.
At the end of the exhibition, Progetto LuMe will go on becoming the first archive of memory of the Bibione Lighthouse: a collection of photos and stories (“My best memory at the Lighthouse”) that will be soon published in the website, hoping to see it growing over time.
All material collected has been selected and elaborated to organize the contents of the exhibition “LuMe – Storie di Luce e Memorie” (LuMe – Stories of Light and Memories) at the Bibione Lighthouse.
The visitor will be taken through the discovery of the Lighthouse’s history, from its construction to the present time and will listen to the stories of its protagonists.
