MUSA (The University Museum of Arts and Sciences)
The Anatomy Museum of the University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli" re-opened its doors to the world of international and national culture back in 1997 after a long period of negligence. Ten years later, the University created the MUSA (Museo Universitario delle Scienze e delle Arti), a new communication tool designed to optimize the use of the University’s historical heritage and resources. In 2012, the museum was assigned a Scientific committee and a Director designated by the new University Statute. From that moment on, the MUSA was no longer a static container of objects. Indeed, it was transformed into a concept of dynamic museology and a new era of experimentation began in the areas of custody, valorization and fruition of museological resources for the benefit of a socio-cultural growth of the entire territory.
Other organizational realities are encompassed by the new MUSA, such as the Anatomy Museum, the University Archives, the University monuments heritage as well as all other contributions from the technical and scientific forces of the territory.
It is precisely for this reason that the MUSA is organized into Sections: the Anatomy Section with its prestigious collection from the Anatomy Museum, the Pharmacology Section, the Stomatology Section, the Bibliographic Section and the Artistic Section.
The MUSA employs specific and technological competences in experimenting with innovative organizational solutions for the Museum which are designed to be flexible and open to the territory. It especially makes use of coordinating activities alongside the National Rectors’ Conference and other national and international university associations.
