The Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte has worked for years to ensure the broadest public enjoyment of its art collections and historic gardens, striving to provide the best possible conditions for visitors, including people with disabilities, to promote their inclusion and involvement in culture.
With the contribution of the E.LIS.A. coordinating group, the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte has created 26 visitor itineraries for deaf and hard of hearing people. Selected from among the 49,000 art objects preserved at the museum, the itineraries comprise some of the most representative works in the collections and identify the points of greatest landscape, botanical, and architectural interest in the 134 hectares of the park and wood. The itineraries introduce deaf and hard of hearing visitors to the history of the Royal Palace of Capodimonte and some of its tenants, the botanical history and composition of the forest, and highlights from the museum’s permanent collection, providing visitors with a comprehensive overview of the heritage of the royal site.
