ACCESSIBILITY AT THE MUSEUM
For years, the Gallerie d’Italia in Naples, in collaboration with Civita Mostre e Musei, have offered numerous activities for visitors with disabilities and groups with special cognitive and social needs: Alzheimer’s patients, visitors suffering from autism spectrum disorders or with Down syndrome. Migrants, refugees and at-risk also have daily access to the works of the collection.
Since 2015, tactile books containing relief panels and educational charts in Braille have been available, free of charge, at the museum ticket office, allowing visually-impaired and blind visitors to explore much of the collection on their own.
Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano is also part of Napoli tra le Mani (“Naples in Your Hands”), the network of public and private museums whose objective is to disseminate and implement good practices aimed at affirming the principle of inclusion and encouraging access to culture by people with disabilities.
These tours are all designed with the support of experts and associations, depending on the particular characteristics and needs of the users involved:
Visitors can choose to visit the museum in a single appointment or choose a series of meetings to experiment with various educational offerings. In both cases, the programmes are tailored to meet the specific needs of each group.
Activities and itineraries for visitors with disabilities can be booked at the toll-free number 800.454229 or at the e-mail address email@example.com.
The apartments adjacent to the Gallerie also house a restoration laboratory for the safeguard and recovery of the collection works most damaged by time. Air conditioned and equipped with state-of-the art technology, the laboratory is overseen by expert restorers who keep up-to-date with the latest intervention techniques and methods.
