During the conference will be presented the crowdfunding campaign for the construction of a swing for children in wheelchairs, initiated by TarantaWineFest, a strategic partner of the MArRC, which supports the fundraising for the activation of a tactile path for the blind and visually impaired at the Museum through ArtBonus.

“This meeting – the director Carmelo Malacrino declares – takes on a significance of great importance in the activities of enhancement and relationship with the territory. Cultural institutions must pursue the mission of creating collaborative networks to meet the needs of all citizens, meeting the different needs of individuals in the field of culture, art and knowledge. The partnership with CSEN and with TarantaWineFest – continues – marks a step forward in the inclusive and vital sharing project that guides all the activities of the Museum”.
