The Museo Omero has been organizing special training and refresher courses since 2004, which provide an overview of the fields of disability and accessibility to cultural heritage. The teaching staff is composed of our own expert tutors and guest international and Italian specialists.
In addition to the National Accessibility to Cultural Heritage course that we hold on site every year, the Museum also exports its experience off-site. A typical example is our collaboration with the Colosseum Archaeological Park (29 November 2018 – 9 September 2019), where a substantial training module, on the subject of visual impairment and the enjoyment of cultural heritage, was created for the staff.
The Museum also signed an agreement with the l’Accademia di Belle Arti Santa Giulia in Brescia in the academic year 2019-20 to promote, within the academic context, issues relating to museum accessibility for disabled people. It stipulates that the Museo Omero will undertake the planning and implementation of the Education Technology course.
Since 2021 the Museum has been a strategic partner of the University of Salento.
Other specific training events include projects for the Museo Opera del Duomo of Orvieto, the University of Cassino and the Associazione Italia Langobardorum.
On 20 August 2018, the Museo Omero was officially recognized as a qualified body for the training of teachers, pursuant to Ministerial Directive 170/2016 of the MIUR, Department for the educational system of teaching and training, General Directorate for school staff.
