The Comune di Empoli recently decided to unite the city’s six museums under a single management body that would ensure their relaunch on a local level and beyond. The museums that make up the network are the Museo del Vetro, the Museo della Collegiata, the GAM, the Museo Paleontologico, the Casa-Museo Ferruccio Busoni and the Casa del Pontormo.
According to the Comune di Empoli and the Promocultura cooperative, which has taken on the management of the museums, these spaces will be required to open up to local communities, working on their relationship with nearby audiences.
BAM! has been asked to develop a training and coaching course for the new museum staff, supporting the development of new specific skills for museum operators.
