  • MEIS how it will look like in 2020
    As Jews around the world lit Hanukkah menorahs in celebration, The National Museum of Italian Judaism and Shoah (MEIS) in Ferrara opened its doors for the first time. The museum creates a bridge between the past and present in a city which has played a central role in Jewish culture within the country.
  • Love and the writing of love letters are a central part of Italy’s history. These letters tell stories of love lost, love found, and love rekindled. Their most common subjects are immigrants, refugees, and the exiled. In many cases, love letters are forgotten in drawers, in our grandparents’ suitcases, or in the attic of our parents’ houses. However, one museum looks to highlight the importance of these letters in an intriguing way.
  • Italian painter Giovanni dal Ponte, along with Canaletto and his nephew Bernardo Bellotto, are currently on display in Florence and Milan respectively, featuring over 150 pieces of critically acclaimed pieces and less familiar hidden gems.
  • Good news on the tourism front: cultural tourism is on the rise in Italy, in a trend that contradicts what's happening elsewhere in Europe. In 2015, the ì visitors to Italian museums rose by 6% over 2014, resulting in a boost in income of no less than 14%. At the same time Italian treasures are cultural ambassadors abroad.
  • Antonio Pietrangeli: A Retrospective explores the filmmaker’s career from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s. It features 11 films, from Pietrangeli’s best-known work to a number of rediscoveries. As a major father of the Commedia all'Italiana genre and a leading figure of Neorealism, Pietrangeli explored the ever changing role of women in Italian society after the fall of Fascism. They have to deal with a new freedom that is attractive yet at the same time ambiguous and somewhat dangerous.
  • In a radical change of policy, the Italian government has just appointed twenty new directors for museums and archaeological sites from Milan to Paestum. Among them are ten women. Seven are non-Italians, such as German art historian Eike Schmidt, who will head the Uffizi Galleries in Florence. Not everyone is thrilled at the sweep of this new cultural broom.
