Bene, ci siamo, in partenza per Chicago e New York. Man mano che raggiungerò dei computer conessi o rientrerò in albergo o a casa, cercherò di aggiornare il diario di viaggio, possibilmente anche con alcune foto.
Novità, rispetto alle altre volte, la possibilità di inserire direttamente dei commenti. Occhio che sono moderati, quindi non verranno pubblicati subito ma appena potrò validarli. Per commenti privati usate la mia solita email please. Ciao a tutti ed arrivederci da Chicago venerdì notte.
Photo Agency of the Réunion des Musées nationaux de France is putting together a veritable archival treasure.
You need only a word, a title or an author to initiate a search that will always reward you. This Oracle-based site gives access to all national museums. The list is a long one including the Musée du Louvre, d’Orsay, Pompidou, Guimet, Picasso, de l’Orangerie, le Musée Rodin or Delacroix, the Bibliothèque de l’Institut, as well as the Chantilly, Compiègne, Écouen, les Granges de Port-Royal, Fontainebleau, Ajaccio, Nice, Matisse, Message biblique de Chagall, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac and the Musée de Préhistoire.
From the site, you can access many other groupings via the Joconde database that classifies and lists under one of its many headings all the tables possible according to a variety of criteria: alphabetical, administrative document, iconology, lyric poetry, almanac, drama, images, proverbs, past records, eloquence, word games, psalms, biographies, sagas, etc.
Since 1999, an effective query function on the photo.rmn site has been supported by the Auracom search engine, created by a French company founded by Michel Martinez.
Thanks for this info to AVICOM web site
I just read in italian newspaper about “No Pants Subway Ride Day”, a funny initiative made from a group called “Improv Everywhere”.
People travelling in the NYC subway, last saturday, leave pants at home to create a funny scene and try to donate a smile to unhappy peoples.
Anyone want to test it in a museum?
Happy new year to all of you.
Will be fun to receive comment and the experiences of your New Year Day in a museum, if you have the occasion to do this, please post here, thanks.

Night at the Museum, by 20th Century Fox, in Theatres December 22nd
“An action-adventure-comedy that comes to life by night. Good-hearted dreamer Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), despite being perpetually down on his luck, thinks he’s destined for something big. But even he could never have imagined how “big,” when he accepts what appears to be a menial job as a graveyard-shift security guard at a museum of natural history.”

From Boingboing.net…and from Reuters…
A scientist claims to have recreated the Mona Lisa’s real voice by measuring her face and hands and modeling her skull. Matsumi Suzuki told Reuters that he’s confident that the voice is 90 percent accurate. Of course, we’ll never know. …follow this link for the Reuters article and this link for the web site about the…voice…
