Macedonia to host Luigi Micheletti Award Ceremony

Macedonia and the Ministry of Culture in September 2017 will host and organize a ceremony where the Luigi Micheletti Award will be presented for best museum in Europe, considered one of the leading recognitions for innovative museums.

The decision of the Board of the European Museum Academy (EMA), made at an annual meeting in May 2016 in the island of Lesbos, is of huge importance for Macedonia recognizing the efforts made by the Culture Ministry by investing in museums, i.e. constructing museums to present the country’s rich cultural heritage and history,” the Ministry has said.

The Luigi Micheletti Award ceremony, set to be held at the Museum of Macedonian Struggle for Independence in Skopje, will bring together EMA board members, representatives of the nominated museums, university professors from Europe, as well as other notable guests including Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg.

In 2013, the Museum for Macedonian Struggle was shortlisted for the Luigi Micheletti Award in the category of history and military-history museums. In official competition of 21 top museums in Europe, it was honored with a special recognition for its enthusiasm and achievement in preserving the country's national treasure.

Being presented since 1996 by the Luigi Micheletti Foundation, the Luigi Micheletti Award is considered top European prize for innovative museums in the world of contemporary history, industry and science.
