Gallerie d’Italia - Napoli dedicates numerous special projects to vulnerable visitors, paying particular attention to people with physical, cognitive and sensory impairments. These include initiatives for visually impaired and blind visitors to improve the museum experience with tactile and braille displays and free guided tours.
Following a major training programme involving the Italian National Agency for the Deaf (Provincial Section of Naples) and the University Service for the Activities of Students with Disabilities of the Suor Orsola Benincasa University in Naples, which coordinates the “Napoli tra le Mani” network that Gallerie d’Italia - Napoli belongs to, guided visits in Italian Sign Language are also available.
Visits in Italian Sign Language (LIS) can be booked by calling the freephone number 800.167.619 or by email at the following address : email@example.com.
Angsa Campania (a branch of the National Association of Parents of Autistic People) provided special training for education staff at Gallerie d’Italia - Napoli and helped come up with courses aimed at promoting the participation of classes with pupils affected by autism and Asperger's syndrome.
All tours have been designed with the support of experts and associations based on the characteristics and specific needs of the visitors concerned.
Visitors may choose to explore the entire museum in just one visit, or attend a series of events to enjoy the various educational activities on offer. In both cases, the programmes are tailored to meet the specific needs of each group.
