Free opening of Rome's state and city museums for La Befana.
Italy's state-run museums and archaeological sites are open free of charge on Sunday 6 January 2019 as part of the Italian culture ministry's Domenica al Museo programme.
Rome's municipal-run museums are also free on 6 January - for residents of the capital - for information see Musei in Comune website.
The January edition of the popular initiative coincides with the annual celebration of La Befana in Rome.
Last summer Rome introduced the €5 MIC card granting the capital's residents unlimited access to municipal museums for one year.
