There will be also an artwork created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” art project among the pieces that will be in permanent exhibition at the “St. Francis Contemporary Art Museum” which is being born in Mercatello sul Metauro, a picturesque and fascinating medieval town in the centre of Italy (Marche region, in Pesaro Urbino territory).

This beautiful and praiseworthy initiative is carried out with enthusiasm by the local City Council and by Mayor Giovanni Pistola, by Pro Loco (tourism promotion association), by artist sculptor Pasquale Martini (curator of the Museum) and with the collaboration of the whole community, from families to schools, involved also in a particular campaign called “Adoption of an artwork.”

This extraordinary modern art collection (more than 150 pieces) will be kept in the ancient and medieval “St.Francis” convent now transformated in a beautiful museum centre and a reference point for art and culture. The opening of “St. Francis Contemporary Art Museum”is scheduled for September 2012.

Touch faces, bodies, gestures, expressions, discover volumes and perspective with your own hands

Touch faces, bodies, gestures, expressions, discover volumes and perspective with your own hands | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Museo Tattile Statale Omero was created to fill this gap in the range of cultural services for the non-sighted, and also to offer an innovative space where artistic perception passes through multi-sense, and not just visual, stimuli.

Touching art, an unthinkable aim until very recently.

Touching art is not only for those who can't exploit light and enjoy images. It can also help everyone discover new and richer ways of perceiving.

Touching art is a way of perceiving which is forbidden in almost every museum, an approach to aesthetic pleasure which has hardly been explored by the non-sighted, in spite of its profound epistemological importance. And yet, there is a museum in Italy which has made tactile observation its main channel of learning.

The Museo Tattile Statale Omero of Ancona is situated near the offices of the Marches Regional Council in via Tiziano 50, 60125 Ancona Italy. Free admission.

Nowadays inside the museum you can admire the evidences of periods such as Paleolithic, Neolithic, Eneolithic, Bronze Age, Piceni and Gaul Senoni civilizations.
Your tour may be extended by visiting the recently discovered ruins standing in front of Ferretti Palace, Roman Amphitheatre ruins dominating the hill of the museum in Birarelli Str.
