On 6th November, the Ministry of Culture's first Sunday of the month with free admission is back. ll visitors will have a further opportunity to explore the spaces of the VIVE Institute, museum heritage among the most representative in Italy. On this occasion, the Vittoriano, including the Panoramic Terrace, will extend their opening hours from 7.30 pm until 10.30 pm, with last admission at 9.45 pm.
Free admission to individual monuments, without booking.
The VIVE Institute is offering on the first free Sundays a cycle of visits, different each month, to allow visitors to always admire various works and aspects of the museum's various collections. Every cycle includes four different tours of half an hour each and focuses on three works chosen as particularly illustrative. An invitation to come back every month to discover more treasures and explore new themes each time.
On 6th November it’s the turn of the 3/30. Three works in 30 minutes. Objects with a soul: collectors and collections. Part 2, which will conclude the short cycle dedicated to the stories of private collectors who have decided to donate all or part of their art collections to the Italian State. This is the case of Prince Ladislao Odescalchi (founder of the town of Ladispoli and a great lover of antique weapons) or of the Museum founded in the Collegio Romano by the Jesuit father Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680): a veritable chamber of wonders where medieval art treasures such as the small pyrite sculpture attributed to Nicola Pisano or the Byzantine ivory casket with the Stories of David could be admired.
For families and kids aged 5 to 12 special day and evening tours, organised on the occasion of the Italian National Unity and Armed Forces Day, will be available: I’ll tell you a story, a journey through the dreams and principles held by numerous generations of Italians and the animated visit Stories of Heroes, that leads us to learn about the heroes and heroines who helped shape Italy's history.
Reservations are recommended for guided tours and educational activities.
