International Museums Day – May 18, 2014


Thursday 15 May 2014




Since 1977, the ICOM (International Council Of Museum), celebrates the International Museum Day: an annual event dedicated to the museums and their cultural value. The theme of this 2014 will be: “Make connections with collections”.

The Museo del Cognome, in addition to the ordinary research activity, will inaugurate the projection room, a kind of multimedia space where videos about the past traditional crafts will be projected. The aim is to incline the visitors towards those manual arts almost entirely disappeared. 

On this occasion only,  the Museum will follow these opening times: 
9:00am – 01:00pm
03:00pm – 09:00pm
