The message we have waited for so long: the Ministry of ‘Beni Culturali’ and Fiat have come to an agreement and the museum will reopen! October this year the work on the museum will commence. Restoration, renewal and expansion will be according to a masterplan that was already presented in 2007, yet simplified. Time is not on the museum’s side, it seems that the work will not be finished by May 2015, when the Expo opens. But as it will open in the summer of 2015, it still can welcome many of the Expo’s visitors.
Many details from the agreement haven’t been disclosed, except for an inportant one: the bond (preventing any of the cars being sold or relocated permanently) remains untouched.
