The M9 museum in Venice Mestre belongs to a new concept of museums that narrates the lights and shadows of a century as intense as the twentieth century in an innovative and compelling way.
If it is true that one hundred years, compared to human history, is a very short period of time, in the twentieth century the life of Italians has changed a lot and very quickly. It was in fact the century of world wars but also of the discoveries of science and technology, of collective movements, of the years of lead and of the cold war but also of freedom, civil rights, economic boom and widespread well-being.
The M9 tells the story of everyone through the small and large transformations of the nineteenth century: from everyday life to major social, economic, cultural and environmental changes. The Museum of the 1900s, thanks to immersive technologies, is able to make us relive this recent past with an engaging narrative.
Here we find the icons of the twentieth century that made Italy famous in the world, such as Ferrari and Fiat 500, or the phenomenon that saw the advent of the mass advertising of the Carosello or even the table football and then again the panettone and the high fashion: everything that makes us feel Italian, in short, finds its place in the museum alongside the great events and big names in politics, economics, culture and scientific research.
As we read on the museum website, “The twentieth century of M9 is everyone’s story, a collective fresco in which everyone can find themselves and relocate their lives, that of grandparents and parents, within the great historical phenomena”.
But the 20th century is also the century of images and in fact the multimedia contents of the museum give us an enormous heritage of photographs, newspapers, magazines, posters, radio recordings, films and documentaries, amateur filming and television programs.
At the M9 you will not find “no photography” signs: this is a museum to touch, explore, experience and share. A museum where everyone can follow their interests and create original and personal tour itineraries, without having to follow a set path.
The M9 is an unmissable experience for you who love art, design, history, anthropology, sociology, photography, advertising.
