On June 1, contemporary and modern art museums across Italy will introduce a membership card that allows access to all participating museums. The project, called Contemporaneamente Italia, was announced ahead of the G7 Culture Summit, held in Florence at the end of March. Cards will cost 30€ each, will be sold at the participating museums starting June 1, and will grant cardholders one entry to each museum through Dec. 31, 2017.
“This is the first time in Italy we’ve brought together museums and institutions dedicated to the contemporary under one inter-regional network. The G7 Culture Summit is the perfect occasion to launch this project, which is overseen by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage,” said Florence Mayor Dario Nadella.
Currently, 18 museums have signed on to the project, but Nadella hopes more will join in the future. The list of museums includes:
Bologna: MAMbo (Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna) (pictured above)

Naples: Madre (Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina)
