ART AND COMMUNICATION: LET’S GIVE THE FLOOR TO THE THYSSEN-BORNEMISZA MUSEUM

This interview with Elena Benarroch Vila, marketing manager at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, marks the beginning of a series of appointments dedicated to the theme Art and communication, aimed at examining the relationship that institutions dealing with culture have with their public.
