need suggestions on job seeking (books, publishing houses, libraries, art)

On September I will start my job seeking in Basel. There will be an agency helping me, but my position is atypical, as they told me, so I will have to give them some suggestions myself.
In Italy I've been working with publishing houses for more than ten years. I write, do editing and take care of the quality of the final "product" (being it an article for a magazine or a book to be published). My main fields are literature (I've published fiction books for major publishing houses) and art (I still write articles for Italian magazines).
I know I'll never do this here in Basel, due to language problems (my German is still awful). But I don't mind changing, starting a new carrier.
What I will always love, though, are books and art. For instance, I would like to help a library to scan and digitalize its archives. (I love manuscripts, illuminated books). Or maybe take charge of the Italian translations of guides and captions in some museum of art. I also like natural history, or botanical...
My contacts (journalists) in Italy could be an interesting "plus" for a press office (still thinking about museums).
Is there anybody who could give me any advice on how to start, where to start from?
I am 37 years old, my curriculum is good (I left a wonderful job back in Italy to follow my husband here in Switzerland), I am a reliable and accurate person, enthusiastic and young.
Thank you for your help, any suggestions will be precious.

PS: my main need, in loooking for a job, is to find a stimulating environment, to get in touch with people with shared interests. I'd do it also for free...
