XIII Week of culture at the Museo Omero

Locandina Spettacolo teatrale

“Culture is for everyone. Join in!”

The Museo Tattile Statale Omero is taking part again in the Week of Culture (9 to 17 April 2011) promoted by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali. This is now the13th year of an event which was created with the aim of encouraging a love for art through learning more about Italy’s immense artistic heritage and promoting new cultural experiences, especially among the younger generations, by means of widespread, capillary action over the whole country.

Our Museum proposes three important appointments during the week:

13 April 2011: Tactile visit to the “Derive” exhibition at the Mole Vanvitelliana, Ancona

This exhibition, curated by Nicoletta Frapiccini, features the work of three young artists from Ancona, Kane Caddoo, Gabriele Cesaretti and Marco Montenovi, who have explored the idea of drift, each using the artistic language which is most congenial and in the interpretation which was most fruitful. The Museo Omero is creating special aids for the occasion (legends and panels in Braille, relief versions of some works). On 13 April, Andrea Socrati will speak in the morning conference on “Educazione Museale e Arte contemporaneo. Metodi, strategie, criticità” (held at the Ridotto del Teatro delle Muse) and at 3.30 pm Massimiliano Trubbiani will coordinate the tactile visit to the “Derive” exhibition in the presence of the artists. The visit is free. Booking is compulsory (tel. 071 28 11 935 –

14 and 15 April 2011: National Course – Museum accessibility and artistic and aesthetic education for visually handicapped people.

This is now the eighth time this course has been offered. It is for people who work in these sectors and for teachers. For further information click on the link at the foot of the page.

17 April 2011, Theatre “Lavoro? (Ma se) non vedo l’ora…”: afternoon performance at 5 pm, evening performance at 9 pm.

By and with the Gruppo Teatrale dell’Unione Italiana Ciechi, Ancona branch. Directed by Antonio Lovascio. Actresses Giulia Pagoni, Stefania Terrè, Barbara Roefaro. After its successful debut last March, the show is being staged again in an afternoon(5 pm) and an evening (9 pm) performance, in the Museo Omero. Free from pious sentiment and rich in irony, the production presents three different journeys in the darkness of blindness, three women who find the strength to go ahead in spite of the difficulties, fears and general indifference. Three women and a common objective: overcome prejudice and live their lives to the full. Three stories that through imagination, memory, courage and strength tell us about: dreams, hopes, beauty and many, many possibilities.

The theatrical production is by Un Ponte tra Culture società Cooperativa in collaboration with the UIC – Ancona branch and the Museo Tattile Statale Omero. It is part of the “Memorie del lavoro” Festival, a project that won the Cohabitat 2010 competition run by the Provincia di Ancona.

Paris, Hong Kong, Ancona: 18 works from the Louvre to the Museo Omero

Il soldato che tende l'Arco

18 works from the “Le mouvement sculpté – Il Movimento scolpito” travelling exhibition organized by the Louvre Museum, Paris have arrived at the Museo Tattile Omero directly from Hong Kong.

The works, copies and reliefs in plaster and resin of famous sculptures dating from the 2nd century BC to the 19th century AD, illustrate the changing aesthetic of European civilization over the centuries and are grouped into five categories showing five different movements of the body: straining, running, dancing, rest and falling.
Among the best known works are: the Milo of Crotone, the Soldier pulling his bow, Mercury tying his sandals, the Rebel Slave.

The exhibition was inaugurated in Paris in 2008 and has been travelling around Asia since 2009, visiting various museums in Taiwan and China. It has now arrived in Italy, in the city of Ancona, thanks to the longstanding collaboration between the Museo Omero and the Louvre. The two museums have already worked together on various initiatives such as the D’après l’Antique exhibition (held at the Mole Vanvitelliana in 2005), the “Dancing Satyr” of Mazara del Vallo project (shown at the Louvre in 2007 on the occasion of their exhibition dedicated to Praxiteles)..

The exceptional fact is that these works will remain at the Museo Omero for 5 years, as agreed out in a convention. However the loan may be prolonged and it is hoped that they can stay at the Museo Omero permanently.
