Museums and cultural heritage

There are over 300 museums in Emilia Romagna, including large historical collections, as well as more recent ones.

museiriminiThis variety and richness (from archaeology to art galleries, from historical houses to naturalistic and scientific collections, from municipal to ecclesiastic museums, to ethnographic ones) reflects the past and present history of the regional area, in its various aspects and from different viewpoints.
The relationship existing between the different objects, as well as with the places in which and for which they were originally produced ¿ different ethnic groups, courts, the various commissioning bodies, the church, universities, economic and rural organisations ¿ establish a link with the patrimony which is not kept in museums, but constitutes the “cultural heritage”, that is a museum in the open, or else a museum diffused all over the regional area.
The activity of the Istituto with regard to museums are carried out by the unit “Museums and Cultural Heritage”, which deals with the various aspects of researching, cataloguing and documenting collections (also with ICT), planning, conserving, setting standards, training museum professionals, organising services and initiatives to the benefit of citizens, such as educational activities, exhibitions, publishing.
As far as conservation and restoration are concerned, the unit is active with programmes addressed to preserve cultural assets located in museums, churches, public buildings or buildings of public interest. Documentation is carried out in compliance with methodologies and standards set at national level, so that the regional information system is already integrated in the wider national one.
