Announced as a 2013 finalist under the name ‘Corfu Living History Museum’, this HEA winner opened to the public in March 2014 under the name ‘Casa Parlante’ (http://casaparlante.gr/) – a reference to the strong Italian cultural and architectural influence in Corfu. Located in central Corfu Town, Casa Parlante recreates the environment of an historic mansion, by depicting the everyday life of 19th century nobility. It includes animated figures and features the essences and sounds of the age, creating an authentic and involving experience. The mansion which houses the museum has been totally renovated and has already provided indirect employment to dozens of local professionals in addition to the permanent jobs created for the operation of the venture.
