The Museo Tattile Statale Omero has always celebrated International Women’s Day and this year is happy to take part in the Donna e Arte initiative promoted by the Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività culturali by organizing an event involving professional hairstylists from Teste d’autore Shampoo, Ancona and students from the Istituto d’Istruzione Superiore “Podesti Calzecchi Onesti”, Ancona – Operatore del Benessere, accompanied by their teachers Stella Carletti and Adriana Bellezza:

L’Arte in testa

Visitors can spend an afternoon at the museum dedicated to the art of hairstyling: close observation of a series of heads of women and goddesses from the collection confirms the importance of hairdressing in the exaltation of femininity over the centuries. Starts 5 pm at the Museo Omero.

Participants must then put themselves into the hands of the young hair stylists who will use all their creativity to make this Women’s Day special and elegant. An enjoyable afternoon of aesthetic and cultural pleasure, accompanied by the flavours of hot herbal tea.

The sanctuary of Loreto – the non-sighted try their hand

Aldo Grassini esplora una scultura del Museo Antico Tesoro del Santurario

Saturday 12 February 2011, Loreto

The Ancona branch of the Unione Italiana Ciechi e Ipovedenti organized a guided visit to the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto on Saturday, 12 February: more than 30 people from all areas of Le Marche were able to discover the beauties of the city dedicated to Maria.

As well as the Basilica, the visit included the medieval walkways, known as Rocchette, where the city guards patrolled, and the Museo Antico Tesoro del Santuario where the visitors were given permission to touch some precious sculptures, including a wooden model of the Basilica della Santa Casa, and the fittings in the room where Pope John XXIII slept. Aids in Braille and the assistance of expert guides made the visit straightforward. Andrea Sòcrati, creator of the accessible exhibition “20 views of the Basilica di Loreto” on show in the Museum, illustrated his works to non-and partially-sighted visitors.

Given its success, the initiative will be proposed in the other provincial UIC branches in the Regione Marche. The experience is part of a wider project which involves other museums and collections of contemporary art, and intends to consolidate Le Marche as a model of accessibility.

A Braille Lesson at the desks of … the Museum

Ragazzi che leggono e scrivono in Braille

Sunday 20 February 2011,
5 to 6.30pm.

The Museo Tattile Statale Omero is celebrating National Braille Day one day early this year. La Giornata Braille was established by law (legge n. 126 del 2007) to coincide with World linguistic identity defence Day (21 February) promoted by Unesco. Braille is the code which permits the non sighted to access the written cultural heritage.

Sunday 20 February, 5 to 6.30pm – children, mums, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles or whoever would like to sit at a desk in the Museum can learn to read with their fingers and write with a Braille board and stylus. The eachers will be Daniela Bottegoni and Aldo Grassini, founders of the Museo Tattile Statale Omero. They will tell the story of Louis Braille and how he created this special code that enables the non-sighted to read and write.

An initiative created to increase public awareness of the difficulties faced by non-sighted people, as set out in the above-mentioned law and also in the mission of the Museo Omero.
