Fondazione Santagata collaborates with the National Family Day at Museums – FAMu as a scientific partner through the development of questionnaires addressed to families and museums participating in the event, within a study on the habits of the cultural consumption among young people in collaboration with IULM.


The National Family Day at Museums – FAMu is a nationwide event born in 2013, during which all participating museums organize specific activities for families with preschool or primary school children; it’s a tool to encourage the meeting between families and culture, an opportunity to show how a museum can be welcoming and how children with families can be excellent “users of culture”.

Since 2014 the CSS-EBLA (as Fondazione Santagata since 2018) has been conducting a study on the habits of the cultural consumption of young people and children in Italy within the research activities of the Observatory 0-18 on cultural production and consumption under 18 in Italy, and the National Day of Families at the Museum is a valuable opportunity to gather information on a topic not studied with statistical detail, fundamental instead to understand the nature and dynamics with an adequate level of detail.


The research intends to contribute to fill a knowledge gap about the profiles of children and families who today enjoy culture in Italy – and also the “excluded” ones – in order to divulge useful information and knowledge to strenghten the country’s cultural policies and the strategies of cultural institutions.
