Three months of gaining the advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, offered me many new perspectives on museum and collections organization practices, their policies and programs. They were followed by many visual examples, written or discussed, and assignments, and articles referring to class topics. The program also offered visits to all places of interest where, while in the physical spaces of the museums, private collections, galleries and archives, we could debate about our current concerns; where we could focus on a variety of aspects from risk management to object care, exhibition and installation. Further, we had the opportunity to compare good and bad museum practices worldwide.
