A group of around 50 visitors, made up of non-and partially sighted young people and their helpers, from 18 countries of the European Union visited the Museo Omero this morning.
The young people belong to the VIEWS International association based in Liege (Belgium). They came together for 5 days (9 to 13 March) at the Oasi, Pollenza (Provincia di Macerata) thanks to the "Let's Exchange! International meeting for young people with visual disability " project, to work hard planning and programming the association’s activities for 2011 and 2012. The project is sustained by the Young People in Action programme of the European Commission. The event was made possible by the efforts of the Florence and Macerata branches of the Unione Italiana dei Ciechi e degli Ipovedenti, Mirko Montecchiani (president UIC Macerata and coordinator of the project) and the Cavallo a Dondolo association, Pollenza.
