Sculpture is the art that best lends itself to tactile exploration. An exhibition illustrating the dawn of the Renaissance in Florence, especially through the art of sculpture, had to have a facility allowing visitors to discover some of the works through touch. Observing with your hands is a complex emotional experience and the Please Touch Tour offers an interesting itinerary for the visually impaired, focusing on the Altar Frontal by Pagno di Lapo Portigiani and Michelozzo from the Museo Stefano Bardini in Florence. Each participant is given a pair of gloves with which they can delicately touch the work, the better to appreciate its shapes and its surface.

Our thanks to the Museo Stefano Bardini, the Museo Tattile Statale Omero and the Galleria Frilli for their cooperation in the tactile observation project.

Activity in Italian only.
