Trails for People with Disabilities

Project 'Creation of an approach ramp for disabled people for the Museum of Poggiolforato'

The project has been financed by the Provincial Plan 2001 dealing with libraries, archives, museums, according to the Regional Law L.R. n. 18/2000.
The project gave the opportunity to create an approach ramp for disabled people enabling them to enter the Ethnographic Museum of Mountain Culture "G.Carpani", within a system according to which the accessibility of the Museum will be gradually improved.
The intervention led to the elimination of preexisting architectural barriers by creating a new access to the building through an already existing way from which the inclined ramp begins. The ramp, with a gradient respecting the rules, leads to a landing near the entrance, which is placed at the same level of the inner floor.

"Un Parco per Tutti"

Project for People with Disabilities
The project "Un Parco per tutti" has been carried out thanks to the Fondazione della Cassa di Risparmio di Bologna; the main aim of the project was the improvement of the accessibility of Corno alle Scale Park through the restructuring of already existing paths and the creation of new paths which are entirely accessible for disabled people.
The places modified by the interventions included in the project are: the adjacent area of Pian d'Ivo Visitor Center (loc. Madonna dell'Acero) and the access to the Sanctuary of Madonna dell'Acero.
A parking area reserved to people with disabilities has been created near the forest road linking the SP road to the Visitor Center; moreover, a path developing along wooden footways has been prepared: it enables everyone to reach the Park structure in a comfortable way and it develops within the wood to give the possibility to directly observe the naturalistic aspects. Along the route of the footways, some didactic wooden boxes containing the seeds and the bark of the plants which can be found along the route and the tracks of the most characteristic local animals have been placed.
The access to Madonna dell'Acero Sanctuary before the intervention was possible through a few steps or a ramp. However, it was rather uncomfortable, since the stairs did not have handrail, and the ramp and the road in the meadow became muddy and full of puddles in case of bad weather. Through this project, an access road with sandstone slabs linking the SP road to the Sanctuary, which is accessible also in case of bad weather, has been created. Moreover, a small rest area with a bench has been created in the area facing the Mountains of the Riva, from where you can enjoy a suggestive landscape.
