- THE ENERGY OF THE MUSEUM

The buildings of the Museum are equipped with photovoltaic systems and are part of a local energy community: that is, they self-produce and consume collective energy together with three other municipal buildings. In this way energy autonomy is achieved and excess production is transferred to others.

- THE BEES OF THE MUSEUM

The museum houses a colony of honey bees (Apis mellifera) in a hive monitored through webcams. The social organization of these bees usually provides for a queen, the only fertile female, a few tens of thousands of workers and, during the reproductive period, a few hundred males (drones). From the biological point of view, the colony represents a superorganism, that is a single entity composed of thousands of closely interdependent individuals. By pollinating many plants, domestic bees do a great deal of work for overall biodiversity. You can monitor the activity of the bees in our hive through the three dedicated webcams.
