Amico Museo, the campaign for valorizing the territory’s rich cultural legacy, returns to the Region of Tuscany from May 18th to June 2nd. More than 200 ofTuscany's museums will open their doors (many of them with free entry) to the public with guided tours, expositions, workshops, presentations of significant works, and special events for discovering the numerous collections and museums scattered throughout the Region.
The initiative will include theatrical performances, visits, inaugurations, Classical music concerts, excursions along the paths of eco-museums, trekking in gardens and archaeological parks, nocturnal tours through archaeological ares, and sky observations in planetariums.
The Caffè Letterario delle Murate in Florence will host a pre-Amico Museo event with a solidarity display in favor of Naples’s City of Science that, a few months ago, was destroyed by fire.
