Women will get free entry to Italy’s museums on International Women’s Day

All women will be able to enjoy free entry to Italy’s museums and cultural sites on March 8th, International Women’s Day.

Italy’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage said on Thursday that it wanted to “celebrate the feminine world” through a series of projects to mark the day.

Not only will museums offer free entry to women, but they will also aim to highlight works of art by and of women in their collections.

Several cultural heritage sites across the country will hold special events, talks and exhibitions to mark the day, some focussing on specific periods, authors, or regions, and others looking more generally at the representation of women in art. Read more at The Local…
