As part of the 2011 celebrations of 150 years of Italian Unity, the Italian Ministry of Culture is offering Italian and EU citizens a special birthday present: from 1st January – 31st December 2011 they will be able to enter museums and archaeological sites all over Italy on their birthday, upon presentation of an identity document.

The scheme, “L’arte ti fa gli auguri” [“Art wishes you a happy birthday”] follows a series of special museum entry offers on feast days which has increased the number of visitors to Italy’s State museums by up to 33%.

A list of participating museums and sites can be found on the Ministry Website.
