Provaci ancora Museum!

Gerardo De Simone, Emanuele Pellegrini

What is a museum? Since 1946, ICOM has been proposing several definitions of museum that reflect different concepts of museums, its role in the society, its relationship with the public or the art market. In 2019, ICOM launched an international call for a new definition. The debates that were raised around the call, and the many different new definitions that have been proposed all over the world, provide a very interesting insight on how museums are conceived in present society and their possibile development.
