And to make it virtualy: just connect to the institutional channels of the community (YouTube Genova More Than This; Facebook: visit Genoa, Genovamorethanthis, Musei di Genova; Instagram: @genovamorethanthis, @museidigenova; Twitter: @GenovaEventi), to enjoy art straight from your living room.

For better communication, the hashtags started by MiBACT #iorestoacasa and #museichiusimuseiaperti are used. If you click on the link, you can immerse yourself in 3D in the splendor of  of Palazzo Rosso.

The video, which is also reissued by the Facebook channel of the museums of Genoa and from the stories of the Instagram account @museidigenova, was recorded in anticipation of the museum's closure for adaptation work and should become part of the museum's offer. However, it was decided to immediately share it with the city to lighten up this critical moment.

In the next few days you can take part in the first virtual tours on the You Tube Genova More Than This Channel accompanied by the museum manager. Opening the series is Palazzo Bianco. Through the Genovamorethanthis website, the community is participating in the national event "Digital White Night", which is organized by Digital Invasions and the @unbearable blogger and concludes the day called "Italy" sponsored by MiBACT. This is a great solidarity marathon for collecting donations for civil protection: 18 hours #iorestoacasa with protagonists from the world of culture, science, economy and innovation.

Stories and posts about these events on the Genovamorethanthis Instagram channel. The Carlo Felice Theater, the Palazzo Ducale and the museum conservatories will also promote the two initiatives from their channels. The community channels will republish images and videos of the city's cultural heritage with the official hashtags of MiBACT and Digital Invasions: #italiachiamo, #NotteBiancaTw. Also noteworthy is the heavily frequented section #acasaconiduchi on the Instagram page of the Genoa Museums.

More detailed videos on the works of the Genoese museums will be published in the next few days. Videos from other Genoese cultural institutions such as the Carlo Felice Theater, the Palazzo Ducale and the National Theater, as well as performances and moments of entertainment by city artists who have made their art available to the city, will also be reissued and shared happy moments for the Genoese. Because culture is a fundamental resource and #LaCulturaNonSiFerma. (culture doesn't stop)
