€ 29,00

The Nuova Pilotta project, the reconstruction of one of the oldest Italian institutions of collecting and culture, concerns the theoretical foundations of museology, its roots in scientific research which, in this case, reveals the most recent historical-critical orientations even in ancient collections. At the Pilotta Complex, an extensive rethinking of the historical collections is under way, thanks to the opportunity represented by the Franceschini reform, which has made it possible to rediscover, through the scholarly renewal of the various institutes, the original intellectual perspective with which the collections were established and organized over time.

Today a museum like the Nuova Pilotta is also a place of intellectual and civil emancipation, where the study and exhibition of documents serves to make citizens freer and more aware of the past. From this point of view, the museological work is related to disciplines – such as anthropology or sociology – that go far beyond the concepts of the “work of art” or the “masterpiece”, explaining how some artifacts have come to provide a symbolic frame of reference for a community. A fundamental role in this process is played by citizens who, together with associations and other institutions, continually regenerate the meaning and value of the creations in which the city, as a civil community, identifies itself.
