Italian cultural heritage tours Europe

“Is it normal that there haven’t been any problems?” The employees working at the Italian embassy in Rome couldn’t believe that their travelling project was coming off without a hitch. In spite of the tight schedule, a very diverse collection of art managed to leave on an international road trip. “Things were very hectic internally,” Roberta Tanzi, sales executive for Gosselin Moving in Rome, says. “Thanks to the smooth working relationship with our colleagues in and around Southeastern Europe, we got the job done really fast.”

 

Italian soul

The exposition, Italy, the (in)visible stories focuses on popular traditions that are part of the country’s intangible heritage. Culture encompasses more than just the classical monuments: objects, rituals and other aspects such as local cuisine and music also define a country’s cultural identity. Fifteen contemporary artists got inspired by the Italian soul and put together a diverse collection of photos, audio-visual installations, objects, prints and other work.

 

Close-knit network

The organizer of the exposition is the organization Glocal Project Consulting, working closely with the Central Institute for Demo-ethno-anthropology and the Museum of Civilizations in Rome, with support from UNESCO and the Italian embassies in Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Bulgaria. “We have had an excellent relationship with these embassies for a very long time, and our close-knit network is ideally suited for this type of cultural project,” Roberta explains.

 

Local procedures

In this project, the focus wasn’t on the special measures taken for expensive medieval paintings, she continues. “Some of the installations such as a ‘cinema box’ that offers a multi-sensory experience, also required careful handling. The timing was the main challenge, as were the procedures imposed by several local governments. Some of the artwork comes from private collections, other pieces were donated by national foundations, and each comes with its own set of conditions. This is right up our alley; various curators and employees thanked us for our punctual approach and high-quality service.”

 

On tour

In June 2019, the expo moved from Italy to Gyumri in Armenia. In the fall and winter, the exhibit was set up in Banja-Luka and Sarajevo in Bosnia-Herzegovina. From January to April, people could visit the expo in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. “Thanks to help from our office in Croatia, this went really well every time,” Roberta says. “Talks are ongoing about bringing the exposition to other countries in Southeastern Europe. The COVID-19 outbreak could throw a monkey wrench in the works, however.”

“Moving artwork is crucial in my work as a curator and historian. It was such a pleasure to work with Gosselin for two large expositions in Sofia. The company guarantees high-quality service with employees you can always count on, and who you know will do their very best to get the job done.”

Gosselin Belgium receives FIDI Top Performer status

After the Italian and UK office receiving the FAIM 22 Top Performer status, it was Belgium’s turn for a FIDI audit. With Belgium not only having multiple offices in Deurne and Vilvoorde, but also their own warehouses and rolling stock, the audit was extensive but successful nevertheless.
International work experience

An international work experience

With Gosselin offices all over Europe, it’s almost impossible to know everybody. However, an international working experience can be the perfect way to get acquainted with colleagues from different countries. Roberta and Patrizio from the Italian office did just that, taking the opportunity to network and brainstorm work processes.
