General strike on March 8
We just learned that several Italian trade unions have announced a general strike for the entire day on March 8th.
This affects both the private and public sector. As such, the Accademia Gallery will guarantee opening of the museums only for the morning hours, from 8.15am to 1.50pm.
The afternoon hours are not guaranteed, as it will depend on the personnel that adheres to the strike. Visit the Accademia tomorrow knowing this, prepare for long lines or to not be able to enter at all.
