forumferrum.com offers insights into the extensive collection of "ferrum", the interactive museum of the world of iron in Ybbsitz. Thanks to the possibilities of digital presentation, the forging works of Austrian, Czech, Italian, Hungarian, Slovakian, Ukrainian, and yes - international - blacksmiths and metal designers can be experienced anywhere and anytime.
forumferrum.com is testimony of the friendship between Austrian and Czech blacksmiths.
It is the result of the project "Borderless Blacksmith's Treasures" - a cross-border project of the association Schmiedezentrum Ybbsitz in cooperation with the Czech communities of Brtnice and Náměšť nad Oslavou. Within the framework of a project funded by Interreg, members of the association , blacksmiths, representatives from politics and tourism as well as other interested parties developed the concept for the digital platform "forumferrum.com" together with the agency P&R.
Presenting forged works digitally and introducing their creators
