Luigi Micheletti Award

The Luigi Micheletti Award

Luigi Micheletti Award is an award focused on contemporary history and ist scientific, industrial and social heritage. Originally the Micheletti Award was established by the Micheletti Foundation and Kenneth Hudson in 1996, for the recognition of excellence in the specific sector of European science and industry museums.

Applications are welcomed from scientific, technical and industrial museums and science centres, both long-established and recently opened.

Today the scheme is also open to museum of 20th century history (social, political, military) to reflect the wider scope of the Micheletti Foundation work.


Luigi Micheletti Award nominees and winners do this in inspiring and innovative ways, continually pushing the boundaries and reinventing the museum experience thus paving the way for the museum of the future. I would like to wish all of this year’s contestants the best for this competition, and for the future

Mrs Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni, Council of Europe’s Deputy Secretary General.

The Micheletti Foundation has recently established an internet site in English specifically devoted to the Luigi Micheletti Award where you can find any information concerning applications, former winners and the history of this scheme:
