The Institute for the Blind Francesco Cavazza houses the Tolomeo museum, which consists of a setup where can be found various objects, technological or otherwise, that have been a part of Cavazza's history, intertwined with reminiscences of the life of the city of Bologna. An environment including an intermodal and interactive setup with environmental art.
The museum hall provides narrative commentaries that not only are the audio description to the exhibits, but also become the support of a production telling of the objects themselves: an open-channel, visual and tactile / acoustic.
There are not only material goods, but also intangible substances: alongside works of art, portraits, collection pieces, we find stories and experiences that convey various perspectives of the long history of the city of Bologna.
