Since 2019 IBSA Foundation has been a partner of MUSE – the Science Museum of Trento, one of the major science museums in Europe with almost 500,000 visitors per year and a unique example of scientific dissemination and cultural promotion.
Despite the closure period due to the pandemic, which ended at the end of June, the museum remained committed to its mission and IBSA Foundation chose to support it.
The Museum therefore proposed MUSE per #iorestoacasa, a program with a wide range of projects for being together “from a distance”, with lots of news and learning opportunities to feed the curiosity of both adults and children. These initiatives were all available on the MUSE website and the museum’s social media channels. Every Saturday the iWEEKEND di Fondazione IBSA section of IBSA Foundation’s Facebook page listed the events not-to-be-missed in the program offered by the Museum.
MUSE per #iorestoacasa first activity was a virtual trip through the museum with a large number of video clips that enabled people to visit the exhibition halls and learn more about the topics presented interactively.
One of the projects launched was entitled 7Minuti. Storie sulla linea del tempo, which formed part of the radio project MUSE *OnAir*. Every Saturday, ten radio stories, each lasting seven minutes, retraced the history of epidemics, the most accidental inventions, the most courageous journeys and many other events that have marked the time-line of humanity.
