Celebrating Italy's heritage, in collaboration with the European Council and the European Commission
The European Heritage Days provide access to thousands of rarely opened sites and unique events to over 20 million people every year in Europe.
During the European Heritage Days, doors are opened to thousands of monuments and sites, some of them normally closed to the public, allowing people to enjoy free visits, learn about their shared cultural heritage and become actively involved in the safeguarding of Europe’s heritage for present and future generations.
The initiative is designed to:
- raise awareness of Europe’s cultural richness and diversity
- stimulate interest in Europe’s cultural heritage
- counter racism and xenophobia and encourage greater interest in other cultures across Europe
- inform the public and governments [or policymakers] about the need to protect cultural heritage
- invite Europe to respond to the social, political and economic challenges of the culture sector
What to do in Italy
In Italy, all the State-owned cultural sites and a great number non-state places – including civic museums, municipalities, galleries, foundations and private associations – build up an extremely varied cultural offering, with a calendar that often reaches almost a thousand events. And, usually, the offered events are at discounted prices (e.g. Milan’s Pinacoteca di Brera takes part to the European Heritage Days with a special admission ticket of 1 euro)
