Touching art – Museo Tattile Statale Omero
“Touching art is not only for those who can’t exploit light and enjoy images. It can also help everyone discover new and richer ways of perceiving”.
It is a way of perceiving which is forbidden in almost every museum, an approach to aesthetic pleasure which has hardly been explored by the non-sighted, in spite of its profound epistemological importance. And yet, there is a museum in Italy which has made tactile observation its main channel of learning.
Touch faces, bodies, gestures, expressions, discover volumes and perspective with your own hands
The Museo Tattile Statale Omero was created to fill this gap in the range of cultural services for the non-sighted, and also to offer an innovative space where artistic perception passes through multi-sensory, rather than just visual, stimuli.”
With a disabled owner Cadamà was meant to have a strong social commitment from the very beginning. All the people that work or are somehow tied to Cadamà are utterly sure that the sea is much more than a source of adventure, it is a gym where we can discover our self and limits, strengthen our independence and self-esteem and finally where to learn to open up and interact with those that surround us.
This is whay Cadamà is so much more than a beautiful wooden yacht or than an accessible charter: we take part with a mixed crew in regattas, bring forward a sailing school project and propose ourselves as a powerful instrument for team building.
