PARCO MUSEO JALARI AS AN OBJECT OF INTEREST OF CULTURAL TOURISM
Languages of publication
The article focuses on a private museum of a hybrid character, Parco Museo Jalari, as an example of reception and understanding of the cultural heritage of Sicily. Trinkaria, with its historical, cultural, natural and climatic background, has been a valued destination of educational and artistic trips for ages. These factors made an impact on the Sicilians’ awareness, significantly influencing the ways of expressing and understanding their identity. The analysis of the park structure, of the creation history, as well as that of the exhibition and festival activity, shows the way in which it reflects the island’s history and culture, the way in which it defines itself or the extent in which it caters for the needs of different cultural tourists. The starting point of the elaboration is an attempt to capture Sicilian individuality reflected in the trip accounts written by the great ones of this world as well as in the meanders of history. Next, after introducing the museum context of Jalari, the profile of the park is presented: its history, structure and activity. The summary of the article exposes the extent to which the theoretical assumptions have been fulfilled and to which they are useful for the protection and promotion of the region’s culture. It also presents the value of the park’s offer in the context of cultural tourism. As for the complete lack of texts in Polish describing the park, the primary aim of this article is to bring the idea, the stages of creation and the functioning of the park closer to Polish cultural, and museum, tourism researchers as well as Polish reads interested in the subject.
