The Ronchey Law of January 14, 1993, represented a major revolution within the world of cultural heritage and museum appreciation. Visiting hours are extended, the museum visitor will finally have the opportunity to buy the guidebook, a monograph, a reproduction of a work of art in different media, there is talk of museum merchandising for the first time in Italy. The Legislature takes similar French, British and U.S. realities for inspiration and adapts them to our country. Inside the museum or archaeological area, you can enjoy a good coffee or sip an aperitif in the cafeterias that will be open to make your visit more relaxing and enjoyable.
Exactly 30 years later, what is the current situation of services to the public? How has the role of the private operator who must guarantee and ensure these services to the highest possible standard transformed? The time has come to take stock by looking back at the past with the ability to envision the future. To this and much more the Roundtable will try to provide answers, pose questions and make proposals.
