Museum Studies (MUST)
Director: Emanuele Pellegrini
The track in Museum Studies is dedicated to museums and museum studies. Based on an institutional partnership between IMT and some of the most relevant Italian museums and cultural institutions (Fondazione Museo Egizio, Torino; Galleria Nazionale di Urbino; Museo Nazionale Romano; Parco Archeologico di Pompei; Galleria Borghese, Roma; Galleria dell'Accademia, Firenze), the track proposes courses on public engagement, cataloguing methods, museum management, museum visitors, provenance studies. PhD research will be developed in strong connection with the members of the above mentioned partnership and other museum professionals involved in Lynx Research Unit projects.
