The dates for 2010 have not been announced.
The Settimana della Cultura does not only take place in Rome; it is a nation-wide event sponsored by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attivita Culturali.
Is there any information on Settimana Della Cultura in English on the Internet somewhere?
Looks like its 16th-25th April, if i am reading the beniculturali website correctly. Its listed under grand events!
No, there isn't; Culture Week is intended primarily for Italians. Closer to the date, there is sometimes information in English.
What do you want to know? Admission is free to all state-owned museums and archeological sites in Italy. In Rome, the civic museums follow suit. There are some special openings or guided visits, the latter generally only in Italian.
I know it is free to state owned museums but still it would be good to have a list about these museums. And special events (when, where, what) would be interesting too.
I also read somewhere that though admission is free we have to register to get in. Is it true?
The list (in italian) of events is here:
Look under Lazio - Roma.
The museums and archeological sites with free admission are listed here (in English):
(If you want to know what the 'few others" are, you'll have to email Roma Pass.)
All the places need to keep track of visitor numbers, so they won't let you in without giving you a free ticket. There may be lines at the Colosseum.
Your answer is morethan satisfying.:) Thank You very much!
I understand that I still have to queue to get a ticket to get in.
Do you know if the free ticket I am getting at the Collosseum is also valid for Palatin and Foro Romanum as the regular tickets are?
Thanks a lot for your information!

Yes, the ticket for the Colosseum is valid for all three sites, as it usually is.
