History is both a matter of seriousness and a hobby; therefore, the way re-enactment and Living History groups operate was taken as the basic assumption for the exhibition. But ‘making’ history can be seen as a social game, even if no theatricals are used. Old myths and collective memories are mixed together with personal experience. Film and media images become factoids. An historical monument becomes a stage set; and a stage set becomes a prop to confirm and elaborate an historical experience.
