“The first Calabrian #Empty – he says Salvatore Borzacchiello, local manager of Igers Reggio Calabria and Admin of IgersItalia – will be hosted at the MuParc of Locri where the Igers community will be able to capture and tell, in absolute freedom, the fascinating atmosphere of the museum at night by meeting the wonderful finds preserved in the splendid Museum and National Archaeological Park of Locri Epizefiri.
“This initiative is part of the collaborative relationship that we started with the IgersItalia community on the occasion of the inauguration of the Archaeological Museum last May – commented the director of the Elena Trunfio Park. It represents a further opportunity to enhance our Park through now consolidated languages and which allow us to address a different audience of users, especially the younger ones. I thank Salvatore Borzacchiello and all his team for their enthusiasm and full sharing of intent. I am sure that all the igers involved will live a magical experience as only the Archaeological Park at night can offer.”
