Museum beyond its walls / edited by Laura Carlini, Giulia Pretto. - Bologna : Istituto per i Beni Artistici Culturali e Naturali della Regione Emilia-Romagna, 2013. - 104 p. : ill.
The IBC (Institute of Cultural Heritage of the Emilia-Romagna Region), in collaboration with all the partners of the “AdriaMuse” project and the museums of the Emilia-Romagna region, has put together a series of “good practices” that show the possible ways to bring museums to towns and communities.
The repertoire of cases described below has not only provided inspiration for discussion on the players and places of a “museum beyond its walls” but also for a SWOT analysis of these activities, highlighting the strong and weak points, opportunities and threats.
The IBC has selected 25 successful “stories” among the numerous events that were reported in the area pertaining to the project partners, which can be used as a stimulus and example to other museums.
The repertoire proves to be very varied and describes festivals of various kinds, training and educational courses, educational play activities for children and teenagers, historical re-enactments, fairs and seminars, travelling exhibitions, real and virtual tourist tours, readings, and gourmet tastings.
