“Double Meaning” is a tactile tour program that provides an inclusive experience for blind, visually impaired, and sighted visitors.

Participants are led through 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 paintings are analysed through reproductions in relief. Following the tour, a workshop led by blind sculptor Felice Tagliaferri helps participants reinforce a mental image of one of the works of art in the museum.
