Italian museums to be free 20 days a year - culture minister

'Week of Museums' to take place in March says Bonisoli

(ANSA) - Rome, February 26 - Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli said Tuesday that access to Italian State museums will be free for 20 days a year as a result of a government decree that will come into force this week.
    He said the free days would be during the 'week of the museums' from March 5 and 10, plus eight days picked by the directors of the individual institutions and six on each first Sunday of the month between October and March.
    Bonisoli provoked widespread dismay last year when he announced that a previous system, in which all State museums were free on the first Sunday of every month, was being scrapped.
