Turin, conference tourism promotes itself through culture: open and free Museums for delegates
To promote conference tourism, the Musei Civici di Torino Pietro MIcca and della Frutta will open for free all entrances, during the days of the 30th and 31st October, for the participants to the Conference of Orthopaedics. The decision taken by the Local Council, after the proposal by the Assessor for Culture Francesca Paola Leon, “to incentivate and favour the fruition of the Turinese Museum system during the occasion of the great conference events.”
Turin, in fact, will host from the 28th to the 31st October the 101st National Congress of S.I.O.T., Italian Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, to which 4 thousand participants are expected. Other Turinese museums have joined this initiative with free or reduced entrance tickets. As reported by the Agency AGI, also, the Fondazione Re Rebaudengo, Museo Nazionale del Risorgimento, Museo di Antropologia Criminale, Museo di Anatomia Umana on the 30th and 31st October can be visited by congress goers for free, with their identification card.
The Musei Reali (Armeria Reale, Biblioteca Reale, Cappella della SS. Sindone, Galleria Sabauda, Giardini Reali, Museo Archeologico, Palazzo Reale, Spazio espositivo di Palazzo Chiablese), the Egyptian Museum, the National Museum of Cinema, the National Museum of the Car and the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli offer, always during the same days, on the other hand, reduced entrance tickets. An initiative that one hopes will be replicated in occasion of other great collective events.
