The Istituzione Bologna Musei was dissolved in 2022, ten years after its foundation. The network’s resources were channelled into the municipal structure, leading to the establishment of the Comune di Bologna’s Settore Musei Civici [civic museums sector]. It is formed of twelve museums grouped into six thematic areas: Archeological Area, Ancient Art Area, History and Memory Area, Modern and Contemporary Area, Music Area, Industrial Heritage Area.
During this transition phase, BAM! was asked to conduct an organisational analysis that could be used to identify strategic investment areas and revival ideas for the structure in order to develop the museum network and improve its positioning.
