For All

The ocean is our biggest and best ally in the fight against the climate crisis we’re currently facing, and to which we must all pay attention. But in order to take care of the ocean, it’s absolutely necessary that everyone has access to scientific knowledge and artworks that relate to it, without excluding anyone. Because everyone needs to be involved in safeguarding the planet, and everyone needs to have the information and tools to do so.


As part of the 2023 exhibition program "Thus waves come in pairs", curated by Barbara Casavecchia, the Education Department of Ocean Space is launching the "Ocean for All" service with a series of tactile and Italian Sign Language (LIS) guided visits.


Tactile visits represent a moment of understanding and connection with the work of art (and more) that is important for everyone and fundamental for blind and visually impaired people. Thanks to the collaboration with the artists, some of the sculptures on display can be enjoyed through tactile exploration.

Visitors, upon reservation, will be guided through the construction of a mental image in order to achieve aesthetic appreciation. Participation is free with reservations required, please send an email to education@ocean-space.org.
