Touch tours single visitors

To help visually impaired individuals appreciate and live our art we implemented a direct touch approach. It will be possible to understand Canova’s sculpting technique by touching both Hebe’s bust and the fours busts inside the educational atelier.

Hebe’s bust will be always available, however, booking is required at least 48h prior to visit the Atelier, since this room is normally closed to unaccompanied visitors. Guides for each visually impaired person are required to participate.

For every single blind person, we strinctly recommand their guides to actively participate. Ebe’s bust will be always available, on the contrary a 48h early reservation is required to visit the Atelier, because this room is normally closed to unaccompanied visitors.
