MuseoCity is a non-profit association, founded in 2016, which works for the promotion and enhancement of the great museum heritage of Lombardy. The aim is to involve a larger public to the participate in the artistic and cultural life of the city, giving the Museum a comfortable and welcoming dimension. MuseoCity connects museums of art, history, design, science museums, museum houses, artist studios, company museums, archives, art foundations and cultural institutions.
Since 2017 the Association, in collaboration with Milan City Council, is running a museums’ festival entitled Milano MuseoCity. Every year, the first weekend of March, MuseoCity involves over 85 museums and sees the turnout of about 80,000 people.
The Association has developed many other activities throughout the year: four series of podcasts entirely dedicated to museums that have exceeded 42,000 listeners; guided tours of the local museums; an app constantly updated where you can also discover which works of art are hidden on the facades of twentieth century’s buildings.
IN TOUR – Design, Artists and Made in Italy is the latest project conceived and curated by the Association, which from 22 to 24 October 2021 has promoted the discovery of 38 artist’s archives, design venues and company museums located in some cities and towns of Lombardy.
