1.In your opinion what is the role of a museum?

A museum is a physical place that keeps safe and unchanged artworks or objects and that set them available for being seen to visitors and external public.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

Being French I have a crush for the Louvre Museum, the first museum ever where I cried in front of a painting. A museum is also a place where you set up your own memories: love stories, children of yours that you initiate, emotions in front a physical artwork that you see at least in the flesh after knowing it from books or internet.

3.How important are social networks in your business? And which platform do you prefer and why.

The COVID-19 lockdown has been accelerating a former evolution, which is a more direct touch with the public combined with internet display: in French we say “desintermediation” and “dematerialisation”.
