Basso Peressut, Luca, Francesca Lanz, and Gennaro Postiglione, eds. 2013. European Museums in the 21st Century: Setting the Framework - Vol. 1. Milan: Politecnico di Milano.

This book grew out of the earliest work of the MeLa Research Field 6, “Envisioning 21st Century Museums,” aimed at exploring current trends in European contemporary museums. Analysing their ongoing evolution triggered by this “age of migrations” and with specific attention to their architecture and exhibition design, the volume collects the preliminary observations ensuing from this survey, complemented by the some paradigmatic examples, and further enriched by interviews and contributions from scholars, curators and museum practitioners.
