Guide to the UNESCO Serial Site

Together they give a complete picture of the artistic and architectural heritage of the Lombard people – who, after a long period of migration, settled in Italy and became integrated with Classical culture.
Educational Game with the Lombards
Vannini Editrice, in collaboration with the “Italy Langobardorum” Association, has created “Engage Yourself with… the Lombards!”: an educational game about the Lombard world and its main cultural reference points in Italy, aimed at learning about Lombard art, history, and traditions while having fun.
Ermelinda and Folco, the main characters of the adventure, along with their cousin Helga, will guide players through games and puzzles, allowing them to discover the 7 stages of the journey: the monuments of the UNESCO serial site.
Interactive Tables within the Monuments
At each location within the UNESCO site, visitors have access to interactive tables that allow them to virtually delve into the history and details of each monument, providing an immersive and multimedia visiting experience.
Itinerant and virtual exhibitions
Since 2019, Lombards in Italy has created 3 virtual and itinerant exhibitions in the seven UNESCO site localities: “Getting in touch with the Ancient Lombards”, “Lombard Textiles” and “Lombards in the limelight”, involving in these projects national museums that do not belong to the Network but possess a Lombard or Early Medieval section.
Exhibitions on the history, culture and traditions of the Lombard people to get to know this fascinating people and their archaeological heritage better: from symbolic animal burial practices to monumental architecture, hunting wild game, weaving clothes and other craft activities.
The exhibitions are available online and can be visited in the UNESCO monuments, as updated on the events calendar.
