THE EUROVISION LAB. IN ITALY
As a University partner, the Center for Museum Education of Roma Tre concentrated on organizing workshops to promote the ideas of the EMEE project during its EuroVision Lab. With the help of the Roma Tre University’s EMEE partners network, which consisted of renowned museums and institutions, and the help of the project’s link to CECA, which is one of the most productive committees of ICOM and presided over by Prof. Emma Nardi, the Italian partners succeeded in reaching out to and involving a broader network of international museum professionals, but also the general public.
With regard to the Italian Lab. activities, one central element was a workshop series entitled Experiencing the Change of Perspective. These workshops were organized in cooperation with the Museo Nazionale Romano Terme di Diocleziano (National Roman Museum – Baths of Diocletian), and the Archivio Antonio Cederna. During the first workshop, participants received training on the implementation of a laboratory activity aimed at designing an Exemplary COP-Unit. The second workshop of this series, whose motto was All Roads lead to Rome, took place at the Appian Way Archaeological Park and was based on the Exemplary COP-Unit referring to the same topic. Another major task of the Italian EuroVision Lab. activities revolved around the discussion of the EMEE concept with museum professionals during a symposium at Roma Tre in June 2015. The wider context of the symposium was the ICOM General Conference in Milan 2016. Moreover, and with the goal of reaching out to a wider public, the Center for Museum Education organized an international conference that dealt exclusively with the EMEE project and was entitled Una prospettiva internazionale per i musei europei.
‘Mostly young and adult museum professionals, the participants showed a deep interest in and concern about the task of creating a more horizontal relationship with their audience, in order to overcome the general perception of the museum as a boring place, driven by a “top-down” and old fashioned idea of education. In their feedback they all expressed this general concern, and thanked the EMEE team for having provided tools and guidelines to overcome the barriers that keep museums and society apart.’
