PARC Museum of Genoni Service Charter

Edited by.

Municipality of Genoni – P.AR.C.
P.AR.C. – Paleo Archeo Center
Museum Visitor’s Bill of Rights and Services.

This museum user’s charter of services and rights is inspired by the definition of a museum given in Legislative Decree. n. 41 of January 22, 2004 so-called “New Cultural Heritage Code” art.101, paragraph 2: “museum” a permanent structure that acquires, preserves, orders and exhibits cultural goods for the purpose of education and study. Every museum combines the duty of preservation with the mission of making it possible for the public to enjoy the cultural goods preserved there for educational, recreational, and public enjoyment. (Article 102, Legislative Decree No. 41, January 22, 2004).
The Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities has issued a “Guideline Act on Technical and Scientific Criteria and Standards for the Operation and Development of Museums” (Legislative Decree 112/98 in Art. 3 c.g; Ministerial Decree May 10, 2001) where VIII areas of museum operation are identified along with related minimum requirements and standars. In Scope VII, the museum’s relationship with the public is defined. The museum’s duty to ensure adequate services to the public, established by the standards translates into corresponding rights of the visitor who enjoys the cultural goods preserved in the museum.
This charter of services and user rights is also based on the indications from the Autonomous Region of Sardinia in Regional Law No. 14 of 20/09/2006 “Norms on cultural heritage, institutes and places of culture,” and in the quality objectives for museums contained in the “Guidelines for the recognition of museums and museum collections” approved by G.R. Resolution No. 36 of 27/07/2005 (henceforth “Guidelines”) and those of ICOM (International Council of Museums) in the definition of museum and code of ethics
The Visitor’s Bill of Rights underscores the fundamental and necessary relationship between the Museum and its public by making explicit and clearly stated the services and related levels of quality on which the Museum is committed to its users, in accordance with the relevant law
