This followed our participation in early April to the final conference of the DITOs project, and various on- and off-line meetings where the pibinko.org network, and especially its Metalliferous Hills Jug Band version, is active on the topic of participatory investigation and community engagement.
A “panforte” (medieval cake from Siena, used to demonstrate an ancient game, andh then gobbled up by the players)
Cavallucci (another medieval biscuit from the Siena area)
Salame with Porcino mushroom, from Boccheggiano
Pecorino cheese from Massa Marittima
Less local pecorino cheese (but produced near our area)
White Léllero (vermentino az. Bartoli Loriano)
It is interesting to note the evolution of the “catalog” from one event to the other (check out here what we presented in Florence at the end of February).
Putting together the map base and the thematic data, plus the personal background of the participants, we were able to draw an interesting picture, ranging from the definition of “Maremma” , to the role of Polish troops during the Monte Cassino operation, to ancient games and state-of-the-art environmental monitoring. We also had a surprise ending with some Sicilian flair.
In this event Andrea Giacomelli, aka pibinko or Jack O’Malley, will provide an overview of the pibinko.org network and its activities in the promotion and protection of lesser known assets in the areas of culture, environment, and open innovation.
In the same evening there will be a tasting session with typical products from Southern Tuscany, delivered jus the day before by pibinko (who lives in the area), and a temporary exhibition of some books, part of the pibinko.org distributed library.
Last, but not least, some information will be shared on the final preparations for the upcoming tour in Germany, via Politecnico di Milano (May 30-June 3) by the Metalliferous Hills Jug Band. This is a rock-blues collective created by Jack O’Malley and three other experts (two of which under-30 rockers making records and touring Italy since 2011), as a development of the pibinko.org outreach and empowerment programme.

The pibinko.org network had an interesting appearance in the final day of the European project “Do-it-together Science”. Below you see the stand (or the travelling micro-museum) before the start of the “marketplace” session. In this there were about fifteen companies from all over Europe, including other Italians, but with the pibinko.org network as the only subject with a project from Italy. We don’t have a photo of the stand at the end of the session (since the layout changed gradually, as people were stopping by and interacting with the different features), but we will do our best to cover this aspect with our report on the overall trip.
Following the installations of the pibinko.org mobile museum in various Italian sites (with the one in Florence with a cultural and archaeological focus on February 23, 2019 as a flagship event to date), we are glad to announce that the same situation will have an exhibition space within the final event of the “Doing it Together Science” (DITOs) European Project.
You may visit us on Wednesday, April 3, at the Brussels Natural Sciences Museum.
This is not the first time that palla a 21 balls, night sky quality meters, forgotten Tuscan valley community maps, or geomusical song lists travel with pibinko, but this is the first time that these items will be proposed in an official EU exhibition space.
The pibinko.org network will be present in a group of fourteen stands from various European countries, as well as the European Commission itself:
Thanking the DITOs project for this opportunity and for granting travel support, we go back to work on the final preparations for the mission, with The Seeker in the background.
The outcome of this experience will be reported to our audience at home towards the end of April, with three events planned in Southern Tuscany (see the first call)
