Innovation in Italy: the a.muse project
Museum professionals and the public have long been aware of the inadequacy of Italian museums in view of the unparalleled artistic treasures they contain. The need for reform led to a major pilot project aimed at identifying the direction of ongoing change so as to point the way for Italian museums and to foster communication among the most forward-looking institutions. Maurizio Maggi is scientific director of the Arch Institute (Institute for Assessment and Research on Cultural Heritage of the Rosselli Foundation of Turin, Italy) and was manager of the a.muse research project. He has developed surveys and published books and articles on the cultural heritage, environmental management and sustainable tourism.
