Dear all,

following the health emergency due to covid-19 which unfortunately is still very present in the world, we have reflected on the extraordinary November edition of the #MuseumWeek festival.

After a long internal brainstorming and an in-depth assessment of the situation that still today in some countries is still not the best, contrary to the previous communication of the past months, we have decided to postpone the next #MuseumWeek festival to Spring 2021.

The decision of going ahead with the last edition, which was held from 11 to 17 May, was not an easy one, but we wanted to support each other in an unprecedented situation, a historical period that at different times has spread throughout the world like wild fire. As usual for seven years, we have kept our commitment in respecting those who follow us every year, more and more, with great affection for the passion for art. The numbers tell us.

We enjoyed your great commitment to always be there, despite the fact that museums have worked remotely, and in many cases, reinventing a new communication to adapt to the health emergency. But this time, we considered it appropriate to postpone the appointment in respect of those who instead would like to participate as usual, but who are in a situation of total emergency and priority. Therefore, in a global health situation that is still uncertain, to give everyone the opportunity to participate in the next edition of the festival, we will meet next spring.
