Venue hire

Temporary hire of spaces and places within the museums

The Service Centre "Sistema Museale di Ateneo" (SiMuA), on request, provides some of its internal and external spaces for various initiatives and events.

The granting of these spaces is governed by a price list approved at the meetings of the Board of Directors on October 18, 2017 and June 20, 2018.

The requests for authorization must be sent, according to the regulation, 30 days before the event or the start of installations. The "Sistema Museale di Ateneo" (SiMuA), in authorizing events, will give priority to initiatives of high scientific and cultural value and to subjects who promote arts and culture. The organization of initiatives with commercial and/or promotional purposes and, in any case, not scientific or cultural, must take place outside the opening hours to the public or at most without interfering with the usability of spaces and services for visitors. In particular, the modalities and times of access with means of transport must be agreed from time to time with the Direction.

The revenues deriving from the concession fees are used for the maintenance and development of exhibition itineraries, for the implementation of educational and cultural activities and for the enhancement of the historical, artistic and naturalistic heritage of the Botanical Garden.
