Itinerary for the Blind or Partially Sighted


Thanks to the Associazione ARTE INSIEME, which created in 2007 the “Look with Your Hands” project, the Gallery offers free guided tours for the blind or partially sighted.

Arte Insieme offers tactile tours with 16 sculptures from the collection ( List of works). The tour is conducted by expert staff that facilitates the tactile exploration of these sculptures by teaching visitors to properly touch all the details of the works while providing art historical information. These guests may also enjoy explanations on a few paintings with their chaperons. A tactile diagram of the Villa’s façade can be explored to understand the neo-classical style.?Arte Insieme organizes all kinds of visits:

• individual tour

• group tour with chaperon

• separate tours for the blind and partially sighted.

The project was praised by the Istituto dei Ciechi in Milan, by the Unione Italiana Ciechi, and by the Museo Tattile Statale Omero of Ancona.
