History-Telling is based upon storytelling, which is key for all museums in their attempt to make temporal sense. The Luigi Micheletti Award is meant for all kinds of museums that convey a strong and compelling narrative via their exhibition – at the service of society. All museums working with conclusive and sound narratives are welcome to apply.
The Micheletti Award is organized in cooperation with the Micheletti Foundation to highlight best practices in museums. The award focuses on innovative museums and exhibitions of 20th-century history, science, technology, industry, science centres, eco-museums, and interpretation centres. There is a special interest in new museological ideas and/or practices and in the impact of a museum on the local, regional, national and international scene.
The Award is supported by the Fondazione Luigi Micheletti, a research centre on contemporary history, and specialized in collecting and spreading material and immaterial heritage of the 20th and 21st centuries.
This competition is now closed. Stay tuned for the 2024 edition.
