Why are we still so sensitive when we talk about museums? Why buildings full of evidences, are still developing after centuries?
This book is focused on these charming “cultural machines” and is about what museums are, why we need them, how they work, and how we can promote them. Museums had to deal with demographic, tecnhological, and economic transformations and reacted like an united cultural system developing themselves. In this time characterized by the internet, while the risk is to know everything without understand nothing, museums preserve, spread memory, teach and inspire us.
