In the months of October and November 5 training days for museum operators
Organizing the visit experience in the best possible way, welcoming and communicating with the most diverse types of public, is one of the main missions of a museum. The diversification of the targets involves understanding the needs of visitors and planning specific programs and services. Hence the need for a training program dedicated to those who work in museums on a daily basis: a series of appointments to explore – thanks to the contributions of experts and scholars – the needs, characteristics and best ways of relating to certain targets.
