Museums and entertainment: a traditional visit or a genuine cultural experience?
Modern technology is literally at our fingertips supposedly making life easier with everything just a click away, but the ever constant stimuli has had the opposite effect of making our attention even harder to capture…This phenomenon is as true for daily life as it is for entertainment and free time. Museums and art galleries are doing their best to keep up with the times and evolve to suit the visitors of the digital age. The idea is that of transforming museum visits from something traditional and interesting into a genuine, unforgettable experience.
Involvement strategies in museums
There is a vast range of museums but what unites them all is the need to transform visits into something memorable.By changing the mindset from regarding museums as mere glimpses into the past, visitors can be transported into the past and become part of history itself.
A variety of activities and workshops are a great way of leaving an indelible memory in visitors’ minds. Well chosen events create moments to be remembered forever. A perfect example close to home is the concert of famous pianist Ezio Basso in 2016 in Naples Gallerie d’Italia, in the gallery where Picasso’s Harlequin with a Mirror was exhibited. The perfect synergy between art and music was a truly unique experience for the spectators.
