Since 2014, I have been cooperating with Unione Italiana Ciechi ed Ipovedenti Onlus di Siena e di Firenze, i.e. the Italian Association for the Blind and the Visually Impaired of Siena and Florence.
In collaboration with the Blind Association of Florence, in June 2015 we presented a Project to the Foundation of the Bank Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze. In January 2016 we received funding that allowed us to carry out the project.
The project's aim was to improve the knowledge about the needs of Blind and Visually Impaired persons among those working in the tourism and in the hospitality sector.
Two trainings have been organized for the staff of local hotels, museums, tourist guides and restaurants and 6 audio guides in Italian and English have been created to be used by the guests of the Hotels that have enrolled in this project.
