“Facts like the Galileo Museum will be more and more appreciated.” This was stated by Maria Cristina Mesa, Minister of University and Research, who supported this statement with a specific commitment: a contribution of 1.5 million to be paid each year to the Museum of Florence.
The announcement came during a visit last Monday to the building in Piazza dei Giudeci, accompanied by the museum’s executive director, Roberto Ferrari.
“We decided to build stability in its funding – explained Minister Mesa, because science museums have a unique experience and capacity to publish in three aspects that we must bring together today more than ever before: science, literature and art.”
Thanks to the ministerial contribution, the Galileo Museum will be able to implement many projects. Among those involved in the “Restoration of the Medicinal Wardrobe in the Palazzo Vecchio”, with the scientific historical consultancy for the restoration of the geographical maps of the chamber and globe created by Ignazio Dante in the sixteenth century and will create a website to improve the works under restoration. And again, the international conference, organized with the Accademia dei Lincei to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the publication of the Assayer of Galileo Galilei, which will take place in Rome and Florence in 2023 and will be one of the main events of the year dedicated to Galileo.
