Museum Meetings consist of a series of conversations centered around museums, collections and the way these are experienced. These discussions may include, but are not limited, to the study of works of art, photography, anthropological, historical or sociological approaches of collecting, curation, techniques and media, conservation, and the role museums and archives have in society today. The idea originated in the Acton Collection and expanded beyond the walls of Villa La Pietra to include other art spaces in Florence and Tuscany. It is designed to attract a multidisciplinary group of students, not just those studying art or art history. All the meetings are conceived as discussions and envisage an active student  participation.
