Italy marks Giornate Europee del Patrimonio.
Italy hosts a nationwide programme of cultural events to mark the 2023 edition of European Heritage Days on the weekend of 23-24 September.
Under the theme Patrimonio InVita, the two-day event includes special initiatives at state-run museums, galleries, libraries and archaeological sites, some of which are usually difficult to visit.
Many of the sites will also stay open late on 23 September with a symbolic entry fee of €1 which will go towards the restoration of flood-damaged heritage sites in Italy's northern Emilia-Romagna region.
Il 23 e 24 #settembre tornano le #GEP - Giornate Europee del Patrimonio, con visite guidate e iniziative speciali nei luoghi della cultura italiani. Sabato 23 sono previste aperture straordinarie serali nei @museitaliani.
