If you're desperate to take some decent photos in Val d'Orcia's museums (normally a no-go), you better check out the Invasioni Digitali visits this spring. Organized for the first time last year, the 'invasion' of Italy's museums and spreading of their content on every available social media platform has turned into a true grassroots movement. For the 2014 edition hundreds of dates are available all through Italy and Europe (with a few events already happening on other continents).
DIGITAL INVASION IN THE MUSEUMS OF MONTALCINO AND PIENZA
In the province of Siena the program has been put together by the museum angels (voluntary workers) of Siena's museum foundation. Just show up in town and join the digital museum visitors on Wednesday April 30 at 10 am in Montalcino, or on Sunday May 4 at the Palazzo Borgia museum in Pienza (more info on the events on facebook).
Not in the Val d'Orcia? You're still in time to read up about the ideas behind the movement so as to organize your own digital invasion.
