Stories to touch

Tactile tour at Vittoriano

An expert guide in museum accessibility will engage visitors in sensory explorations of the Vittoriano's spaces and works. The tour starts at the Liberty-style gate on Piazza Venezia, continues with the base of the equestrian statue of Vittorio Emanuele II, to discover the physical characteristics of botticino marble and the stories depicted. From there, it leads to the spatial knowledge of the Piazzale del Bollettino, bordered by the curvilinear form of the Sommoportico, to the exploration of the Monte Grappa rock block. The trail was also developed in collaboration with UICI - Unione Italiana Ciechi e Ipovedenti (Italian Union of the Blind and Visually Impaired) to make VIVE increasingly accessible and inclusive.
