Siena - 22-26 April
The studies and urban analyses of architect Mario Tassoni, published in his book "Siena city of the stars", have revealed a close relationship between the urban planning of Siena and constellations, both from a formal and symbolic point of view. We will visit the city with the architect, through tactile experiences in different locations ranging from buildings, baptismal fonts of the various "contrade", churches, oratories, gates and roads that outline an astronomical design, turning Siena into the stone guardian of the laws of the universe. An itinerary through philosophy, history, architecture, astronomy, art and folklore...
and this time we will also spend a day at the spa, and visit the Etruscan museum of Murlo.
Book before April 8. Contribution € 600 per person, meals and accommodation excluded, association registration included. Hotel: € 45 per night per person in a double room.
Florence - 27 April-1 May
Have you ever tasted a lampredotto? Have you ever smelled how perfumes are made and how leather is tanned? Do you know that in Florence there is a tactile path in the Uffizi gallery? We will take you to the cradle of the Renaissance, visiting ancient Florentine homes and hidden corners, full of quirks and anecdotes. And we will also undertake an exciting journey through scientific discoveries and solutions at the Galileo Museum. In short, we really want to put you in touch with this city, its ancient beauties of glorious marbles and its daily life of markets, craftsmen and world-famous culinary specialties.
Book before April 12. Contribution € 610 per person (€ 490 each if you come with your own accompaniment), meals included, accommodation excluded, association registration included. Hotel: € 50 per night per person in a double room.
New York - 16-25 May
We will discover Downtown Manhattan, where many of the Big Apple's iconic places are concentrated: from the Charging Bull to the September 11th memorial, to the futuristic Oculus, on Wall Street. We will visit the MOMA tactile collection, as well as at the Metropolitan Museum. You will choose whether to gift yourselves a wonderful experience at a Broadway musical, but we will certainly experience a Gospel celebration in Harlem. We will drink espresso in the real Little Italy and pic-nic among the squirrels and Alice in Wonderland in Central Park.
And then the Statue of Liberty, the Rockefeller Center - and, for those who want to, the climb to the Top of the Rock on the 70th floor -, smoky and charming jazz nights; we will experience the excitement of crossing the Brooklyn Bridge on foot, visit Buddhist temples in Chinatown ... and much, much more! A journey meant to unite the iconic landmarks of the Big Apple with its lesser known but vital aspects. All of it with the support of tactile, relief maps and three-dimensional models.
Contribution: € 2210 per person (€ 1710 each if you come with your own accompaniment), association registration included, meals and flight excluded.
