The Museo Omero is rapidly consolidating its international dimension

Museo della Slesia

The Museo Omero is embarking on a period of great changes and moving rapidly towards an ever more international presence in its promotion of “barrier-free culture”.
Thanks to our long standing collaborations with institutions and bodies and to financing received for our projects, upcoming engagements for the Museo Omero include:

Friday 14 October: Inauguration of the “The Beauty of Touch” exhibition at the Slesian Museum, Katowice in Poland, which features a selection of 33 of our casts of the greatest masterpieces of Classical and Italian Renaissance art from our collection. The exhibition will then move on to the Bielsko Biala Museum where it can be seen from 1 February to 15 April 2012.

Saturday 22 October: Inauguration at the Museo Omero of the Louvre’s travelling “Le mouvement sculpté – Sculpted Movement” exhibition, which arrives in the city of Ancona after having visited Taiwan and China. Also on show will be the nucleus of the new Museo Omero’s Travelling Section which is being prepared thanks to a special contribution from the Società Arcus, a society based in Rome for the development of art, culture and theatre.
Because of these preparations, The Museo Omero is suspending visits to the collection until 21 October. All other services will be available: our offices, reception, consulting archive etc will be open at the following times: Tuesday to Friday 9 – 13 and 15 -18; Mondays and Saturdays 9 – 13.

24 and 25 September: two days dedicated to children and families

24 and 25 September 2011, 5 pm.
To celebrate the European Heritage Days.

The Museo Omero continues to take part in the European Heritage weekend: This year we have created a booklet entitled “Il Museo a portata di mano” (the Museum within reach), which is dedicated to our smaller visitors (aged 3 to 10). It invites them to discover the works in the collection through play and without adult help. Art is beauty and beauty is ageless and should be extraneous to the notion of privilege, so it must be made accessible to everyone.

The booklet works on two levels: firstly, as a guidebook which reveals the special nature of the Museum through the tactile exploration of its collection and secondly, as a notebook where the visitor can write, draw, scribble and then take home as a souvenir. Experience is knowledge and knowledge is also, indeed mostly, acquired through play. It won’t be surprising then to see our young visitors imagining that they are surfing with Poseidon or stretching to the height of Michelangelo’s David.

Every family is invited to take part!
