Paesaggio (V.1287)

The subject of the painting are the Campario houses, one of Morandi’s favourite and most depicted places from the very first times he set foot in the beloved town of Grizzana.
Solid and simple geometrical structures, these houses are the perfect subjects for Morandi’s Arte Essenziale (“essential art”), which fills all the available space on this canvas with undulating and vibrant brushwork.

Motor disability and difficulty of movement

The museum is accessible for the most part. Exhibit spaces are wide and allow easy movement and rest. There is a handicap restroom which is very spacious.

 

 

Hearing disability

The museum extends over three exhibition areas within the Mambo Museum and is going to be thematically reorganized. One hall houses temporary exhibitions of artists whose works refer to Morandi. There are no explanatory panels about the museum organization and, therefore, a good understanding requires the assistance of the museum staff. Can make autonomous use of content difficult. Videos without subtitles are projected in a space provided in one of the halls with an acoustic situation which does not facilitate the understanding by people with hearing impairments. Restrooms are on the ground floor, well indicated and easily reachable. There are no means of visual communication in case of alarm in the restrooms or in the lift.

 

 

Visual disability

The collection is mainly visual and can be explored tactilely through the museum educational materials. Captions and room communications are difficult to read for visually impaired visitors. There is no text in Braille or large print.
