Museocity is a project involving over 70 museums of science, history, art, house museums, artists’ residencies and foundations in Milan. The aim is to promote, joined together, the precious collections preserved in the city, organizing a series of initiatives such as guided tours, special events, children’s workshops, special openings, conferences etc.
The focal points of the program are three itineraries proposed in every museum: Secret museum, that consists in valorizing unknown artworks through dedicated guided tours, Museokids, which offers workshops for children and families and Milanese stories, ideated by the Adolfo Pini Foundation and presented in 15 milanese institutions, especially house museums, to guide the public at the discovery of the city, through the owners’ point of view in an innovative form of storytelling.
Linked to Museocity is also the exhibition hosted at Palazzo Reale in the Sala delle Cariatidi titled Muse a Milano. Accoppiamenti giudiziosi (Muses in Milan. Judicious pairings) where the nine muses introduce visitors through the city’s art venues.
