Missing HRM: the original sin of museum reforms in Italy


The Italian Ministry of Culture has been undertaking substantial reforms in the last decades, aimed at reorganizing both the museum sector and the local branches of the Ministry, the Superintendence system. By reconstructing the genealogy of these reforms from a management study perspective, the paper points out the overall misunderstanding of human resource issues in their design and implementation. Starting from the Pompeii reform in 1997 up to the Franceschini reform in 2014\u20132016, the authors focus on the main inconsistencies, omissions and mistakes undermining the effectiveness of change processes.
