museum.dià International convention on Museum Studies

Italian version



Two days of presentations and debates on the theme of museum storytelling, closed by the presentation of best practices selected both by the British School at Rome and the Dià Cultura Foundation


Scholars – from Italian and foreign museum institutions, public administrations dedicated to cultural valorisation, universities and specialized research centres – were invited to discuss the general theme of “Policies, poetry and proposals for a museum storytelling”.

The participants had the chance to represent the experiences and methods used, the difficulties encountered in building storytelling components for museum activities and spaces, as well as the evaluation of the reactions and satisfaction levels of the audience.
