Welcome to the project “Museum Collaborative Digital” Museum of the Shoes and of the Industry of the Inca. The initiative arises from the need to create a digital archive in line with the contributions made by the community, in order to gather all the material heritage and intangible that even today it is stored in the homes of Mallorca, and that it is impossible to preserve the Museum.

Preserves home machinery, shoes ancient, tools, photographs, files, magazines or books related to the footwear or its auxiliary industries? If this is the case, you have the opportunity that this property does not disappear and is exposed to ever more on our website. Fill out the following form with those fields that you know, and to make your contribution to the story.

If you have additional information about any of the published pieces, help us complete the form with your contribution. Write an email to with the number of the piece you have information on and what you want to contribute
