Budget bill reinstates Italian museum foreign chiefs

An amendment to the budhet law, passed on Monday, overcame the Lazio regional administrative court (TAR)'s rejection of five out of 20 museum appointments made by international selection recently .

The amendment stated that in international selection procedures the limits envisaged for civil service appointments do not apply, limits which preclude EU citizens from accessing posts involving direct or indirect powers safeguarding the national interest”.

The amendment will “clarify” museum appointments and “overcome” last week's ruling, Culture Minister Dario Franceschini said.
