“Double Meaning” is the tactile tour program which allows an inclusive experience for visually impaired visitors.

Participants are led in a tactile exploration of an ever-changing selection of sculptures and paintings from the permanent collection or temporary exhibitions by Valeria Bottalico, curator of the project. The exploration of the paintings takes place through the examination of the reproductions in relief. Following the visit, a workshop led by the blind sculptor Felice Tagliaferri helps participants reinforce the mental image of one of the works of art in the museum.
