Dear Young Friends,

We are excited to meet you all at the XVI Triennial Congress of the World Federation of Friends Museums!

Thanks to the Italian Young Friends and the FIDAM – Federazione Italiana degli Amici dei Musei – we can expect four great speakers and also a diverse cultural program in the cities of Verona and Mantua.

Ever since our first Young Friends’ meeting at the congress in Berlin in 2014 and by getting together at the council meetings in Mexico City and Washington D.C. in 2015 and 2016 we have managed to established a worldwide community of Young Friends – for exchanging ideas and share best practices.

For this year’s meeting in Italy we are again looking forward to learn, discuss and improve our work in our Young Friends associations, but also to enjoy four days in two amazing Italian cities and have fun together!

We invite you all the be part of the congress to get in touch personally and discuss different aspects concerning our work with all members of the WFFM as well as meet Young Friends from all over the worlds’ associations and museums.

Hope to see you all in Italy,
Ksenia and Eliana & Giulia, Giacomo and Pietro
