At the Gallerie d’Italia in Milan, we respect differences: there are no physical or cultural barriers, because we want all visitors to feel at their ease and to be able to tour the museum without any difficulties.
All of the temporary exhibitions and the permanent collections are accessible to visitors with limited mobility thanks to the presence of lifts and elevators.
Furthermore, thanks to collaboration with local organisations, we offer tours and workshops tailored for groups with motor disabilities and cognitive and sensory impairment, as well as people belonging to shelter programmes.
Among these, we recommend the project “Per altri occhi” (“For Other Eyes”), created for blind and partially-sighted visitors, who are able to experience the museum and discover our collections thanks to the tactile panels and Braille descriptions that are always available.
It is also possible to reserve free guided tours for visually-impaired visitors, conducted in collaboration with the Centro di Riabilitazione Visiva di Pavia, the IRCCS Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri and the Museo Omero di Ancona.
These guided tours are free, subject to reservation.
