“Sensi e parole per comprendere l’arte” is a choral reflection on the practices of accessibility to places and cultural contents that originates from the contributions exhibited in the homonymous conference, held at the Gobetti Theater in Turin, on 25 and 26 May 2017. The text is divided into three sections, in which it exposes: the results of the research conducted by the Making Sense group; a summary of the intense experimental work carried out in the Turin area by various museums and associations; a collection of short essays by leading experts in the field of accessibility and communication from various parts of Italy.
Starting from the non-acceptance that a sensory deficiency is preclusive to the use of art and assuming that language plays a role that is anything but secondary in the relationship with the so-called objective reality, the book investigates the relationship between word and image, values communicative of language and interpersonal relationships. Multi-voice writing draws attention to the urgent need to open a broad discussion at a national level on what are the essential requirements that must characterize both the forms and methods of communication and the various types of support and technologies used, in order for it to be realized. true accessibility.
