Abstract

The book/dossier raises within the horizon which considers the complex issue of the relationship between art and educational services in the museum of contemporary art. Upon a reflection comparing Europe and in Italy after the reorganization of the Ministry of Cultural Activities and Heritage, it is revealed as the museum as institution is open to a multiplicity of relations with the outside world to become the epicentre of a more long range planning, where the interdisciplinary skills activated by the same presence of the works of art are connected. The purpose of the research, and subject of a specific assay, was the historical reconstruction of the path of the relationship between art/education in their fundamental evolutionary nodes starting from the thesis of R. Steiner to the present day. At the same time, the book presents the results of a survey conducted on the Italian territory and addressed to 120 museums with collections of contemporary art. They had to note down the configuration of educational services and their action. It is joined by some examples of educational services abroad, and the development of a method on which to configure the project proposals, the consideration of artistic goods located on the territory in a new kind of museum of the territory. Another purpose of the research was to explain the institutional framework in relation to the international documentation and the development of programmatic guidelines adopted by the Lombardy Region. The research also produced a reasoned bibliography on the subject. Since the transformation of museums has highlighted the need of new professional figures, the research dedicates a specific focus on the training and the updating of operators in the university, reaching a proposal for training related to the choices of a method declared and justified.
