trevi_fountain_rome_italy_photo_govItaly’s ministry for cultural heritage and tourism has announced an ‘international call’ for eligible candidates to fill post of directors in high-profile museums and archaeological sites.

This is the latest step taken by the ministry to revive the country’s waning cultural heritage sector.

The government is searching for new managers for nine cultural sites.

These nine sites are- the Emperor Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli, Ostia Antica, Villa Guilia, Herculaneum, Phlegraean Fields, and the Appian Way.

The candidates are invited to submit CVs and a 1,000-word “motivation letter”, in Italian and English.

Applications must be submitted by July and a final selection is expected in December.
“As with last year, the selection procedures will be very rigorous – the new directors will be assessed by a commission of experts,” Dario Franceschini, the culture minister said.

“By the end of the year, another nine jewels of Italian cultural heritage will have directors picked from among the best experts in museum management,” he added.

The appointments are for four years, with a basic salary of 78,000 euros (£60,000).
Despite its incomparable heritage, Italy’s museums are under-visited compared with those in other countries. None of them makes it onto the list of the world’s 10 most visited.
