The show

ANCONA - Saturday 8 February 2020 at 5.00 pm, at the Omero State Tactile Museum in Ancona, the exhibition Toccar con Mano i Longobardi will be inaugurated.

The exhibition is part of the homonymous project for which the Associazione Italia Langobardorum , management structure of the UNESCO site “Lombards in Italy. The places of power (568-774 AD) ", chaired by Laura Castelletti, Deputy Mayor of the Municipality of Brescia, obtained from the MiBACT the recognition of its value and the admission to financing under the
L. 77/2006 “Measures for the protection and use of Italian UNESCO sites”.

The exhibition, created in collaboration with the Omero State Tactile Museum, aims to raise awareness of the extraordinariness and complexity of the UNESCO site through a tactile path and a differentiated range of fruition options that facilitate understanding, ensuring everyone a optimal multisensory experience.

Seven three- dimensional scale models of the architectural monuments that most represent the Lombard serial site and seven models relating to the areas in which the monuments are located will be exhibited, to allow the tactile exploration of their contexts of origin.

To make the path even more accessible will be the audio descriptions to be listened to via NFC and QR code , as well as a catalog in Braille and one in large print.

The inclusive project involved the inmates of the Spoleto detention center, both for the realization of the exhibition supports for the set-up, with the carpentry, and for the recording of audio guides and videos, with the company #SineNomine .
