I would also add a note concerning historical-artistic narration of the past, in which museums carry out a crucial role. I mean: there are history courses of art, there are books… but museums are the places in which contact can be made with the objects in a coherent and meaningful way. They are places for incredible experimenting on how to juxtapose, reorganise, re-tell, avoid or not build a story that surpasses the ability of the object to speak out to us without such a story, and transcend or not the object of this narration… all are subjects which museums confront in an extraordinarily interesting way.
