Putting the Canal Museum on the Tourist Map

The Museum of Inland Navigation in Battaglia Terme is going from strength to strength, and deservedly so. The collection is unique, and beautifully displayed.

A couple of months ago, they developed an audio guide, and asked me if I’d do one in English. Of course I agreed, and tackled the script in the original, but made it a bit less dry and more enthusiastic.

When I turned up at the museum to do the recording, the place was besieged. 30 German hikers had arrived to look round and with their noise we certainly couldn’t do any recording. However, we adjourned to the Municipio and completed the recording in an empty office.

I’m always willing to show English tourists round the museum, but now they can hear me even when I’m not there!
