From November to January a path for elderly with Alzheimer at Museo Novecento.
A new calendar is starting, the cicle of Noi del Novecento, dedicated to elderly with Alzheimer and with cognitive impairment. In the belief that the meeting with art, history and culture is a bearer of deep wellness and a significance that even today is hard to frame, measure, define, the Florentine Civic Museums and MUS.E trasmit a big commitment towards of “special publics” and all “special people” that want to access museums, attend them, live them, understand them.
This is the framework within which the dialogue with people with Alzheimer and dementia is inserted – with their relatives and caregivers; a dialogue started years ago on the impulse of Regione Toscana – precursors the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and Museo Marino Marini – thanks to which over time the project Musei Toscani for Alzheimer has developed over all regional territory (http://www.regione.toscana.it/-/musei-toscani-per-l-alzheimer) and thanks to which Florentine Civic Museums saw a lot of elderly attend their rooms, get excited, observe, tell and remember.
Museo Novecento opens again his doors to families and RSA’s hosts proposing a path for elderly with dementia and for their caregivers, encouraging the attendance of the museum and his collections, so close to the partecipant’s biography, that see the 1900’s as “their” century.
