The association House of Batana established its ecomuseum to safeguard the local maritime heritage. It manages three physical spaces and a yearround program. The ecomuseum approach combines preventive care for tangible heritage (a collection of fishing tools and boats still in use) and varied participative programs with the local community to ensure the transmission of knowledge and skills related to Rovinj’s maritime heritage. These include: a yearly organized regatta for traditional boats of the Upper Adriatic, construction and maintenance of boats, demonstration and workshops of traditional boatbuilding, language workshops as well as the management of a local tavern where local gastronomy and bitinada traditional singing are transmitted and presented.
