Dalarna Museum

Falun, Sweden

The exhibition shows the industrial heritage of Falun and the province of Dalarna. People from Dalarna have had to be creative to provide for themselves in a harsh environment. A variety of industries, including the copper mine in Falun, suited to the natural resources of the area, have developed and dominated the Dalarna landscape for over a thousand years.

The gallery features craftwork and industrial products from the region, art inspired by the industrial landscape and reconstructed rooms. Historical and contemporary film shows the industrial processes which influenced the Dalarna we see today. See how the historic trading centre of Falun has become a modern town from our first floor viewing gallery.

Nice and neat. A lot of interesting facts about Sweden including artists paintings and his life from birth to death. Also, the clothes they wore back then. My Uncle and cousins live in Sweden took us to a bunch of well known area's in Sweden.

Historic Site of the week

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
