The Museo archeologico nazionale will be open extended hours, from 20.00 to 23.00 on Thursday 26 July, and is presenting a special evening/event dedicated to the forty-year tradition of the broadcasting of the regional television station Videolina.
This event is part of the initiatives associated with the exhibition Efisio, Martyrized by the Romans, sanctified by the Christians, cherished by the contemporaries. The journalists Paolo Matta, Andrea Frailis, and Giacomo Serreli, will illustrate the technical and inspiring evolution, that accompanied the station broadcasting on every 1st of May, and how the narration adapted to the change of time. Many short video clips will be shown for this occasion, allowing the audience to travel back in time all the way to 1978.
Another important occurrence happens on the day of this event: the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of the new Museo Archeologico Nazionale. The museum was transferred from the Regio Museo Archeologico in Piazza Indipendenza to the current location within the Cittadella dei Musei, on 24 July, 1993.
The event coincides with the Notte Rossa (Red Night), organized by the city of Cagliari as part of the Notti Colorate 2018 (Colored Nights 2018).
