Nationwide museum fest to sweep Italy this weekend

Rome, May 17 - The third edition of Italy's nationwide Museum Festival will be held this weekend, May 19-20, on the theme "Hyper-Connected Museums: New Approaches, New Publics". As part of the festival, there will be special initiatives across the entire country, guided tours, workshops and the 14th edition of the European Museum Night, during which many museums will be open in the evening with a one-euro entrance fee. In Rome, some 50 museums will be taking part in the evening opening, with shows, concerts, performances and initiatives for children, from the Capitoline Museums to the Ara Pacis, from Palazzo delle Esposizioni to the Casa del Cinema. To get an overview and ideas, Rome residents and visitors can look at the Mappa dei Musei from Giulia Sotto la Metro, which shows the closest museum open for every underground stop.
