BEYOND the center. The Parco archeologico del Colosseo meets the city’s museums — fifth and final date on 12 December with the Museo delle Civiltà presented by Filippo Maria Gambari

4 November 2019

Beginning Thursday 7 November in the Curia Iulia in the Roman Forum, visitors are invited to the new conference series OLTRE il centro. Il Parco archeologico del Colosseo incontra i musei della città (BEYOND the center. The Parco archeologico del Colosseo meets the city’s museums) — designed by Giulia Giovanetti and Federica Rinaldi — which aims to promote the PArCo as meeting place between city center and greater urban area and as a space to tell the stories of the city’s museums.

The series comes as part of the “PArCo outside the PArCo” project organized by the Communications Service, awarded the European Heritage Brand of the Year 2018-2019, with the objective of promoting the PArCo not only as a tourist attraction in the city’s monumental heart but also as a space of dialogue with the cultural realities that exist outside the PArCo and outside the city center.

The fifth and final date is set for Thursday, 12 December, at 16:30 in the Curia Iulia:

Museo delle Civiltà – MuCiv

Filippo Maria Gambari, museum director (Mibact)

The Museo delle Civiltà is comprised of the “Luigi Pigorini” Museum of Prehistory and Ethnography and the Museum of the Early Middle Ages, and conserves some exceptional artifacts of ethnological, anthropological and archaeological interest dating from prehistory to the middle ages. Other components of the MuCiv include the “Giuseppe Tucci” Museum of Asian Art and the Museum of Folk Arts and Traditions, all forming the MiBAC’s new museum complex in the EUR neighborhood, in the southern quadrant of the city.
