TURIN. “Shame! You can close forever »,« dear museum you will not see us again, you have lost three customers »,« You are dealing with history, but you have not understood anything about that story that speaks of pass, discrimination and apartheid. There are hundreds of comments of this content. They never seem to end. The target is the Egyptian Museum, which with a post on its social profiles announces, starting from 6 August, the obligation for visitors to show the Green Pass to access the exhibition halls. “Then don’t cry when the proceeds drop”, “You are simply ashamed”, “you too are slaves of this dictatorship.” Comments are increasing by the hour. «You must all fail», «Congratulations to all those who think they are intelligent because they will enter the museum with the green pass».
Whether it is a government decision and not a choice of management does not matter, the insults come anyway. Often accompanied by angry faces and an abuse of exclamation points.
“The anti-Covid safety regulations also remain in force,” explained the museum. For entry, temperature measurement is required and it is mandatory to wear your own mask (available on site for those without one) and sanitizing gel dispensers are positioned along the museum route, while the rooms have a limited capacity in respect of the distance physical provided for the safety of visitors.
As established by a decree passed by the Council of Ministers from 6 August, it will be possible to enter only with the green pass, in the white area, in any establishment that provides catering at the table and indoors. That is to public performances, sporting events and competitions, exhibitions, cultural events and therefore also museums. These provisions “also apply in the yellow, orange and red zones, where the services and activities are permitted and under the conditions envisaged for the individual zones”. On the other hand, they do not apply “to subjects excluded by age from the vaccination campaign and to subjects exempt on the basis of suitable medical certification issued according to the criteria defined in the circular of the Ministry of Health”.
