NEMECH/MICC – Media Integration and Communication Center: Emotional Museums - Second Edition 13-15 October 2016, Florence, Italy

The Second Edition of the MuseiEmotivi workshop about emotions, visitors involvement and participation in museums (in Italian), is organized at Museo Novecento in Florence. The event is addressing museum professionals and curators and aims to explore the theme of visitor engagement and the role of emotions in the museum experience. What is the role of emotions in designing 21st century museums? Museums of the future should be provoking emotions to improve the educational experience and access to the collections, also through the use of new media and immersive technologies that allow to explore the museum's content in a creative, emotional and personalised way.
