Italian Cultural Week Cancelled in 2013

Italian Cultural Week offers free entrance to state-run musuems, monuments and archaelogical sites

XV Settimana della Cultura, or the 15th Annual Cultural Week, in Italy has been cancelled due to the Country's rough economic climate. This is sad news. Typically during Settimana della Cultura a number of cultural sites are free for visitors. Some of these sites include the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum in Rome, the Uffizi Gallery, Medici Chapels and Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence as well as the Gallerie dell'Accademia and Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Venice. Not wanting to completely disappoint visitors, the MiBAC is doing a Two-for-One ticket to several cultural attractions. If you happen to be in Italy today be sure to enjoy a Two-for-One ticket at a few of the listed sites!! Link is in Italian, sorry!
