A MUSEUM FOR ALL
The goal of the “A MUSEUM FOR ALL” project is to achieve satisfactory sensory accessibility aimed at all visitors, in line with the principles of “universal design” – or “universal design” – which defines a venue as “accessible” if any user can access and move independently. Making a place “accessible” means making it comfortable and inclusive for all potential users, children and young people, adults and the elderly, taking into consideration the various disabilities (motor, sensory, cognitive).
The museum has embarked on this path starting from the translation of the audio guide into sign language: the LIS, Italian Sign Language and the IS, “International sign language” for foreign visitors, is also present in the museum’s guide app in the language menu.
By accessing the web-app, visitors is able to select the desired sign language and watch the interpreted and subtitled video, relating to each section. The interpreter is a native speaker of LIS and an IS interpreter.
On the route there are tactile panels with maps, embossed drawings with braille texts and, above all, resin models with exclusion technique and details made with a 3d printer. Each model is accompanied by audio descriptions, which can be activated via embossed Qr-code and NFC technology, which tell about the car and provide curiosities and informations in Italian and English.
It is possible to download THE FLOOR MAP FILES and print them on embossed microcapsule paper to get to know the museum and its spaces before visiting the site.
