“State museums and the entire Ministry of Culture,” said Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano, “need high professionalism, high-profile figures that unfortunately the public administration in the past has struggled to attract. In recent years, many competition-winning professionals have not accepted entry into the roles of the administration because of pay and grading that are not always adequate in relation to the responsibilities and new goals that this administration has set for itself. This is a serious problem that we are trying to solve, including offering a great opportunity to professionals in the field. This is another significant moment in our efforts to inject new energies and skills through which we will best meet the ambitious challenges ahead.”
