In the last two years, the Gigi Guadagnucci Museum in Massa has been equipping itself to be accessible to different audiences.
With particular attention reservedn to people with disabilities.
In addition to structural interventions to allow for full architectural accessibility, the museum has also developed activities and tools aimed at maximizing the use of its visitors’ itineraries.
The exhibition itinerary has been made accessible to the blind and visually impaired, who can make use of captions in Braille and enlarged characters.
Visits and art workshops have been planned for people with cognitive disabilities.
For the deaf, guided tours have been organized, with translation in LIS (Italian Sign Language) and a series of in-depth content, video-pills, which will be published weekly and will be available to the public.
Our museum – says Councillor Marnica – is increasingly projected towards the reception and dissemination of art to all audiences, children, students, the elderly, the frail in a continuous dialogue with the citizenship.
Accessible Museums. Video-pills in LIS is a project promoted by the City of Massa, curated by the museum director Cinzia Compalati and her educational department. The LIS interpreter is Elena Cipollitti, a young professional in the field, who has been able to render in gestures, signs and expressions the wealth of information and curiosities that are linked to the figure of Gigi Guadagnucci, to his precious white marble sculptures and to the prestigious Villa Rinchiostra that houses the collection.
