At a ceremony held in Bursa, Turkey, the Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr in Dresden, Germany, was announced as the winner of the 2013 Micheletti Award. The trophy was presented to the museum’s director, Dr Matthias Rogg. Representing the Luigi Micheletti Foundation were René Capovin and Giovanni Tampalini. A strong delegation from the European Museum Academy, which was responsible for the selection and assessment of candidates, was also present.
The judges said: “This is a museum that encapsulates the principles of the EU, unity in diversity and peace. It is making a unique effort to change the grammar of the past, as it is seen and understood by today’s society, in order to bring more hope for peace in the world.” “Although architects place their own landmarks in their designs as Libeskind does, it is clear that to achieve a good result this needs to be balanced with a strong group of policy- and decision-makers and advisors in the museum, and this has been done to great effect.”
“The museum is proud to be a forum which puts questions without giving answers. However, what is obvious for any visitor is that the museum is not quite neutral: it advocates peace and understanding …It is not a hymn for the bravery of ancestors, but a very honest witness of the past and of the present. Some of the themes of the temporary exhibitions are very daring.”
René Capovin (EMA National Representative for Italy) has been nominated as EMA Representative in the Europeana Foundation.
The Europeana Foundation is the operator of the Europeana service, including the search portal at Europeana.eu.

Vittorio Silvestrini, president of Città della Scienza, has announced today that in exactly a month, on Saturday, April 13, the Science Centre will restart its exhibitions, albeit at a reduced size, for the first time after the fire of March 4. “This is not just a symbolic event, Silvestrini said, even if I see the exemplar result of our choice. In particular, we will reopen, in the areas overlooking the Conference Center, which has definitely not been affected by the fire, an exhibition area dedicated to children, who have been the hardest hit by the violence of the fire, expressing their affection but also a lot of proposals sensible and reasonable. There will be BIT, our mascotte, as well as workshops and outdoor exhibits, educational laboratories for schools. We can recover 2,000 square meters of exhibition space: not too much, if compared to the Science Centre went up in smoke, but enough to start again”.
Philadelphia, USA, is the home of the PLEASE TOUCH MUSEUM, whose exhibitions and programmes provide children with hands-on introductory learning experiences to the arts, sciences and humanities through play. Every effort is made to make its facilities, programmes and services accessible to all children and their families, irrespective of socio-economic background and level of ability. The target group is children aged 1-7, the museum pointing out that the brain develops more rapidly in early childhood than at any other time. Programmes go beyond conventional subject and include financial literacy and a healthy lifestyle initiative, aiming to make these complex subjects engaging and comprehensible to a young audience. The theatre is a key component of the museum’s activities and year-round daily performances provide a number of original and highly interactive shows.
