Final Conference of the MAPS project | Rome, 3 December

On the occasion of the International Day of People with Disabilities, the ENS Central Office is pleased to invite you to the FINAL CONVENTION of the MAPS project – Accessible Museums for Deaf People. During the morning of 3 December – in the AIL Onlus Conference Room in Via Casilina 5, Rome – the project’s working group will present the results achieved after 18 months of implementation. In particular, the new ACCESSIBITALY website will be presented, which will gather all museums and cultural sites accessible to deaf people in Italy, and will be told, by the same protagonists, the course on museum accessibility that has toured the whole country and involved more than 400 girls and deaf guys. To help us in presenting the results obtained there will be some of the MAPS referents, fundamental in the organization of the courses held throughout Italy, and the participants in the lessons, the MAPS teachers and the project partners. Various authorities will then be present and will demonstrate their closeness to the project and to the deaf community and representatives of museums that have collaborated with MAPS. We look forward to continuing to build together that real network of cooperation that wants to break down every barrier and make the incredible cultural heritage of our country accessible to everyone.

One day in Rome

Step 1

Departure in the morning with the visit of the Mercati di Traiano. Here you can find, projected on a multimedia support, a video in LIS with subtitles that introduces to the exhibition path. A videoguide in LIS is also available on the YouTube channel of the Museums in the Municipality, which accompanies visitors throughout the museum visit.

With a walk of about 10 minutes from the station you will reach the Centrale Montemartini. Here you will find a video in LIS with subtitles, projected on a multimedia support, which will introduce you to the exhibition path. The video is also available online.

Step 5

At this point you can get lost in the streets of the Garbatella, one of the most interesting and characteristic areas of Rome, before arriving at “One Sense”, an inclusive restaurant where you can stop for an aperitif or for dinner after a long day.
