Italian museums to keep ticket revenue, minister says

'To reward performing institutions'

(ANSA) - Rome, May 30 - Italian State museums and archeological sites will no longer turn over revenue to the culture ministry, but instead keep it to reinvest, Culture Minister Dario Franceschini said Friday. "It's an important step that rewards performing institutions," he added. In the past, museums and related sites turned over money generated from ticket and merchandize sales to the government, which in turn financed institutions regardless of their performance.
