Objectives and Expected Results: In order to ensure maximum accessibility to Italian cultural sites, DGVAL is currently coordinating a project to cultural heritage spaces with adequate infrastructures for visitors with special needs. This construction project is the product of the DM March 28 2008 Guidelines for the elimination of urban and other structural obstacles in sites of public and cultural interest. The project is made possible by our partnership with Tandem Societa Cooperativa Sociale Integrata s.r.l., as well as various national and international association. The final purpose of this project is to allow each visitor to have the ability to visit Italian sites of culture, as well as to be informed beforehand if the site in question is appropriately equipped with mechanisms for visitors with special needs.
