The Museo Tattile Statale Omero of Ancona: A virtuous example of accessibility in museums

“I don’t really like the definition of ‘museum for blind people’. Because since its birth, it was conceived as a museum for everyone. A museum without barriers, therefore, means that anyone who enters it has the opportunity to use it, according to their needs and conditions”

Aldo Grassini (Network Museum Interview, 2017)
