The MUSE-Museo delle Scienze of Trento wins 2014 Micheletti Award !

The MUSE-Museo delle Scienze of Trento  wins 2014 Micheletti Award ! - European Museum Academy

 

 

At a glittering ceremony held in Glasgow at the Riverside Museum (2012 Micheletti Award winner), MUSE - Museo delle Scienze in Trento, Italy was announced as the winner of the 2014 Micheletti Award. The trophy was presented to the museum’s director, Michele Lanzinger. Representing the Luigi Micheletti Foundation was René Capovin. A strong delegation from the European Museum Academy, which was responsible for the selection and assessment of candidates, was also present.


A museum of natural history was founded in the city in 1922, and the new museum reopened in July 2013 in an extensive urban park. Most of the investment was made by local authorities after a concept development phase of about 10 years. The building, by Renzo Piano, simulates the slopes of the surrounding mountain peaks of the Dolomites and is a centre with a further seven external locations. 

On the same occasion, the DASA Award was given to the Petroleum Museum in Stavanger, Norway.

For further info about candidates, finalists and other details of this exciting event in  Glasgow please download the Press Release here attached.

 

 Here is a video presentation of the MUSE opening:
