Al Museo Con - Patrimoni Narrati per Musei Accoglienti

11-12 June 2014

Rome, Italy | Museo Nazionale Preistorico Etnografico “Luigi Pigorini” and Museo Nazionale d’Arte Orientale "G. Tucci"


The Project "Al Museo Con - Patrimoni Narrati per Musei Accoglienti" was conceived to foster the enhancement of three fundamental tasks of contemporary museums – accessibility, participation and representation – in order to promote a more democratic fruition and acknwledgment of heritage, to involve wider and more differentiated audiences, and to produce and spread alternative and plural narratives. The initiative ensued from the cooperation between Museo Nazionale Preistorico Etnografico “Luigi Pigorini” and Museo Nazionale d’Arte Orientale “G. Tucci”, and it was developed through the collaboration of different subjects, among which MiBACT, ICOM Italia, Istituto Comprensivo “Daniele Manin”, several refugee and migrants associations (“Casa dei diritti sociali”, Kel’Lam, Comunidad Peruana di Roma, Kiasso, CREI, etc.).

The Project's activities have started in April 2013 and ended in June 2014. On 11 and 12 June, the Museo Nazionale Preistorico Etnografico “Luigi Pigorini” will host a conference aimed at presenting and debating the results.
