NEMECH partecipated in the European Reserach
MUSEUMS AND THE WEB AT THE TIMES OF COVID-19
In search of lasting museological innovations during the pandemic, a project published by EUROPEAN MUSEUM ACADEMY FOUNDATION, The Hague (NL) and University of Padova (IT).
The section “A TERRITORIAL CASE Witnesses from Italian local museums” (pag 29) includes some selected quotes from MuseiEmotivi e motivi post Covid-19, report published by NEMECH during the first lockdown, collecting experiences and new opportunities for “more digital” museums in the post-pandemic era.
“The lock-down – experienced as it happened almost overnight – has ravaged the heritage and culture sector, because the sector was and is dependent on larger number of actual visitors. Most museums were shocked, but soon tried to come up with new initiatives. Though mostly born out of panic, some are innovations and/or worthy extensions and to stay. To put it in a broader perspective: the corona crisis has been and will continue to be an accelerator in the adoption of new practices in most sectors of social and economic life”.
