for the sixteenth edition of its form” outside the walls “The museum has already returned to a room it had already invested at the moment it opened, in 2005.” The paint was drying and we came to hang the exhibition recalls Guy Tosato, director of the Grenoble Museum.

Not without regret that attempts in this direction have failed in the past. Don’t mention it” Reclaiming this growing gap between the classical culture and the new generations ‘, is worried.
