Rome, May 17 - The third edition of Italy's

on the theme "Hyper-Connected Museums: New Approaches, New
Publics".
As part of the festival, there will be special initiatives

In Rome, some 50 museums will be taking part in the evening

children, from the Capitoline Museums to the Ara Pacis, from
Palazzo delle Esposizioni to the Casa del Cinema.
To get an overview and ideas, Rome residents and visitors can
