Guest Lecturer: Museums and Digital Culture in Italy - January 5, 2021

CCR members and friends are really missing their usual cultural activities as the pandemic has shuttered so many museums and monuments in Italy. Yet, now more than ever, some may have discovered there are countless opportunities to learn and explore online. 

Author of "Musei e cultura digitale: Fra narrativa, pratiche e testimonianze" (published by Bibliografica) and a teacher of museum management and multimedia transformation at a number of institutions including the Brera Academy, Maria Elena Colombo will be giving us a talk in English about the exciting transformation currently underway in many of Italy's famous museums. Part of her focus will be on exactly what it takes to tell the stories behind works of art -- online and off!

Her academic background in the preservation of cultural heritage, museology, museography and cultural management, along with a research focus on digital communications, produced a career studded with fascinating highlights. These have included supervising the development of the web site, social media channels and digital products and services of Milan's Museo Diocesano.

When: Tuesday, January 5, 2021
Time: 6 p.m.
Where: remote interactive talk by Zoom
Cost: CCR members free, non-members €5
