The Museo Omero in Japan

yokosuka art museum

This time the Museo Tattile Statale Omero has been exporting its story, professionality and expertise to a distant land: Japan.

The Tom Gallery in Tokyo invited the Museo Tattile Statale Omero to bring its ideas about museum accessibility for the visually handicapped to Japan.

Prof. Aldo Grassini, assistited by Dr Monica Bernacchia, held three conferences in important museums in Tokyo and Kanagaya where he illustrated the history of the Museo Tattile Statale Omero of Ancona to expert audiences.

The Tom Gallery is the only museum in Japan that allows non-sighted visitors to touch works on display. During his first visit in 2005, Prof. Grassini contacted Dr Kyoshi Iwasaki, director of the Tom museum, who is involved in
spreading the idea of barrier-free access to art in Japan.

After invitations to the director of the tactile department of the Louvre and Dr Fabio Levi of the Università di Torino, a top expert in the field of relief drawing, the Tom Gallery has now asked the Museo Tattile Statale Omero to share their acquired experience and know-how, which, also in the light of Dr Iwasaki’s visit to Ancona last April, are considered to be fundamentally important for Japan.

Multisensory paths of art, theatre, music, aromas and flavours
Every Thursady in July and August 9.30 pm.
Ancona, Museo Omero, Via Tiziano 50 – Free entry.

Sensi d’Estate 2008, the Museum’s summer cultural programme, has now reached its eighth edition.

The programme, consisting of nine high-quality events, runs from 3 July to 28 August. The Museo Omero welcomes you every Thursday in July and August at 9.30pm. This year the attention is based on contamination between the different aristic forms and languages. This experience will be useful to come up the visitors to know cultures far from our. Each evening there will be an outdoor show, a multi-sensory exhibition inside the museum and tastings in the courtyard.

The shows

It will be held on the panoramic terrace of the Palazzo Leopardi, seat of the Regione Marche, and will start at 9.30pm. They include encounters with artists, dance, poetry and concerts of jazz, classical and modern music, with rhythms and sounds from all over the world.

Selected works of Roberto Papini

This year the exhibition illustrates the artistic career of Roberto Papini, an eclectic painter/sculptor, whose artistic development has been long and fruitful artistic. His works, produced over a large part of the Twentieth century, have employed various styles while staying true to a recognizable personal language and to his lasting passion for an “ars combinatoria” of object rhythms.
Works which are created with a magic touch, as Roberto Farroni, director of the Museo Omero says:” … where science, magic and mystery come together to be fused into a single unity, the warp and weft of human existence. He is engaged in a profound and dynamic labour of love which breaks through all barriers to reach the sublime, with ideas and things which are simple but not banal, full of magical sensibilty.”
The exhibition will therefore be equipped with informative and learning aids for the visually handicapped.
Worhshop: every visitor can produce a personal work through the analysis of Roberto Papini’s works.

Tastings

Each evening will conclude in the museum courtyard with the flavours of produce from local farms and vineyards selected by Mario Cecconi “l’Arte del Bere” of Osimo and with wonderful freshly-made icecream from the Gelateria Artigianale Al Belvedere di Agugliano, www.enocioccogelateriabrunelli.it
