Moscow will present over 30 events as part of the Russian-Italian Cross Year of Museums in 2021-2022. Russian Minister of Culture Olga Lyubimova, who discussed the program of the Year of Museums with her Italian colleague Dario Franceschini at the meeting of the G20 culture ministers in Rome, told about this, TASS reports.

The start of the cross year is scheduled for September. Olga Lyubimova called joint museum projects the foundation of interaction between the two countries. It is expected that the first large-scale event in the program of the Year will be the Russian-Italian Museum Summit, which will bring together directors of the largest museums of the two countries in Milan.

The program of the Year will also include other large-scale meetings of museum specialists from the two countries, who will present various projects and discuss cooperation. Since the beginning of the year, leading Russian museums have opened exhibitions of masterpieces from Italian collections, and an exposition of the Dahl Museum of the History of Russian Literature, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Fyodor Dostoevsky, will open in Milan.

The parties continue cooperation in other spheres of culture. According to Olga Lyubimova, a meeting of Russian and Italian producers will take place at the Venice Film Festival in early autumn to discuss cooperation in cinema.
