University Museum System

The University of Parma Museums System, considered as a harmonious whole, consists of those structures  which are responsible for the acquisition policy, preservation, management, enhancement and enjoyment of the artistic, naturalistic, scientific collections.

The Museums system is aimed at supporting and promoting the museums during the carrying out of their institutional tasks: learning, research and diffusion of culture.

As a coordination unit, the Museums system has been recently set up; whereas single old museums (called gabinetti) have existed since the 1750s, as witnessed by many historical sources.

The Museums Coordination Office

The principal duty of the M.C.O. is to provide the University of Parma museums system with a harmoniously organized development and to achieve the goals identified by the central governing bodies of the University through the Board of museums.
