These are days of forced isolation, days during which finding something to do, while always staying safe at home, is the only way to get distracted waiting for better times. So why give up art, sport, fashion or cultural debate if there are now many ways to do it online? Here is just a small selection of what you find these days surfing the net.

Visit the museums, from the sofa

In compliance with the most used hashtag these days, #I stay at home, some well-known international museums have given the opportunity to experience art in a different way.

  • It starts with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, museum on the Grand Canal in Venice, which launched “Voice you choice” on its Instagram account: you choose a work and their experts tell you about it, revealing new aspects to you.
  • The Uffizi Gallery in Florence also embraces the initiative, from this link you will be able to discover masterpieces by Cimabue and Botticelli.
  • And the Louvre in Paris, which has provided virtual tours of its splendid rooms in French and English.
  • Same thing for the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Prado in Madrid
  • And returning to our home the Egyptian Museum of Turin (here the message of the director Christian Greco).
  • If your kids like dinosaurs and prehistory on the Smithsonian of New York, famous museum administered by the United States government, you can find many pavilions to visit among the many virtual tour proposals made available.
