“Tales of art”, accessible guided tours to the works of the Turin Urban Art Museum Saturday 3 and 17 October at 10
Fucina Campidoglio presents “Art Tales”, accessible guided tours to the works of the Turin Urban Art Museum as part of the MAU for All project Fucina Campidoglio is pleased to invite you to “Art Tales”, a program of accessible guided tours at the Urban Art Museum of Turin. The initiative (born from an idea by MAU president Edoardo Di Mauro and realized thanks to the contribution of the theater actress Adriana Zamboni) provides an inclusive path among some of the murals that decorate Borgo Vecchio Campidoglio, which will be described through the recitation of small tales capable of evoking their sensations. This is how the MAU for All project continues this year, experimental visits in collaboration with the Volonwrite Association to meet the needs of visitors with disabilities. The experience, specially designed for blind and visually impaired people, is also open to deaf people (the presence of an LIS interpreter is required), with motor and intellectual / relational disabilities looking for a full immersion in contemporary art in the context of a of the most interesting realities on the Italian scene. “Those who look – explains Zamboni – and see, understanding the stimuli of the optic nerve and its cerebral translation, can try to translate with other sensory and narratives for those who do not see with their eyes but interpret with the rest of their body. Respect without pietism, pay attention, take care, look and go beyond the surface of the image in the era of visionary and instant communication: it is worthwhile, every now and then, to stop and listen to someone who slowly tells us a story “. Guided tours, both free, are scheduled for Saturday 3 and Saturday 17 October at 10 am. Reservations are required by contacting the telephone number 3402679727 (also via sms or Whatsapp) or the e-mail address Associazionevolonwrite@gmail.com.
