European Heritage Days: discovering Italy

The next Italian week-end will be entirely dedicated to art and culture. Yes, because on 29th and 30th September Italy will take part to the European Heritage Days, this year with the name “Le grandi strade della cultura: un valore per l’Europa” (“The wide roads of culture: a treasure for all Europe”).

Therefore, to make Italians and tourists happy, during this week-end all the art places, as museums, archaeological sites, and art galleries will open their doors to the public, with free entrance. People will also have the chance to enjoy the organization of many exhibitions, concerts, conferences and guided artistic itineraries.

European Heritage Days are a perfect and unique opportunity to know and explore with no limits all the treasures of our country, discovering historical and artistic details, which make the Italian artistic heritage one of the richest in the world. For two special days, Italians and tourists from every corner of the world will have the opportunity to visit thousands of art places and to see artworks which for the first time will be admired by the public.

In this edition of European heritage Days, special attention will be given to ancient churches and buildings of our country, which are the most important proof of 20th century’s Italian art history, and which have been remained in the shadow for too much time.

In fact, in Florence it will be possible to visit the ‘Church of San Giovanni Battista’ projected by the architect Michelucci, and Palazzo Lenzi, called the “palazzo degli enigmi” (“mystery palace”); in Rome tourists will have the chance to visit the Church “Dives in Misericordia”; in Genoa the apartment of Duca degli Abruzzi (Duke of Abruzzi) on the first floor of “Palazzo Reale” (“Royal Palace”) will be open. In addition, other many monuments and buildings in Milan and Turin will be open to the public.

Of course, two days are not enough to admire all the beauties and treasures that our country offers, but European Heritage Days are a unique occasion to dedicate some of your time discovering Italy, its art and its history, at least once in your life.

Therefore, if you would like to spend a week-end dedicated to museums and cultural events, take advantage of this fantastic initiative!
