Projects

The Museo Tattile Statale Omero has been collaborating for several years with Italian and international institutions, universities and partners, participating in projects that are consistent with its institutional aims: to promote the growth and cultural integration of people with visual disabilities.

Europe

The Museum is a partner in two European Erasmus Plus projects, Amusing and Invisible, which are currently underway.

The main objective of the Amusing, Adapting Museums for Inclusive Goals project, is to share best practices in accessibility policy, modalities and tools among the international partners: Greece, Spain, Lithuania, Italy. In particular, the project headed by the Consselleria of Valencia focuses on the possibilities offered by the use of 3D printers to produce copies, models and other educational aids.

The Invisible project, Guidelines to make architectural and visual art accessible to VIB (Visually Impaired and Blind) people, is headed by the University of Bologna “Alma Mater Studiorum” and aims to encourage the sharing of best practice in order to render the study of architecture, and art in general, accessible to students with visual impairments.
In particular, the Museo Omero will be involved in drawing up guidelines on the use of architectural models and will host an international workshop in November 2023.

Italy

Since October 2020, the Museum has been included in the Museintegrati circuit, a research and support project that aims to raise awareness of sustainability in the ecosystem of Italian museums. The Science Museum of Trento is the leading body in the project and has Icom Italia and the National Association of Scientific Museums as partners.

In addition, the Museo Omero was selected for the 2020 edition of the Plan for Contemporary Art, which allocates two million euros for proposals for the acquisition, production and enhancement of works of contemporary art and creativity, including international ones. Among the projects, the commission chose a work by the blind sculptor, Felice Tagliaferri, “M’illumino d’immenso”, which will become part of our 20th century and contemporary collection.

Finally, the Museum is working on the Autism Project, a pilot scheme aimed at making museums and places of culture more suitable environments for promoting inclusive learning and recreational experiences for children and young people with autism. The project enjoys the collaboration of the Regional Centre for Evolutionary Age Autism of the Infantile Neuropsychiatry department of Marche Nord United Hospitals and involves designing a prototype “workspace” that can be set up in the museum rooms, and which can be replicated in other cultural places in our Region.

Since 2015, the Museum has collaborated with the Sferisterio of Macerata in the InclusiveOpera project, creating relief drawings of the scenery and collaborating on guided tours for people with visual disabilities.

In 2015, the MO was the scientific partner in a joint project with Marche Region’s Department of Culture “The museum of everyone and for everyone” – a wide-ranging project, unique in Italy, with two main aims: to attract more visitors to museums and train specialised operators.
