Events Calendar (ITA)


The museum’s educative department activities are part of the so called Jump Project – learn and play. These are financed by the Piedmont Region, the Cassa di Risparmio di Vercelli, the Fondazione San Paolo promoting social development, the Province of Vercelli and the technical support of Faber-Castell, leading manufacturer of wood cased pencils.

We work in cooperation with many organizations and friends from the “Strada Vercellese del Riso di Qualità” (promoting rice cultivation), and other partners providing snacks and materials to hold our activities.

The museum is a lively place where artworks “come to life” and visitors feel good because they can share their experience, knowledge and needs.

That is the idea behind the museum’s education department activity when planning and taking guided tours and workshops for schools (whatever stage of education). Each activity starts with teachers and students sharing comments and questions, making every experience unique, involving, instructive and entertaining.

ospiti museo borgogna museo per tutti

The Borgogna Museum has been working for years on accessibility and since 2010 it is member, with other 7 museums in the Piedmont region, of the “Diversamente Musei” project, to make disabled visitors aware of physical accessibility to the museum and its collections.

Today all areas of the museum are accessible for disabled people thanks to a ramp at the entrance, a lift acceding all floors and a designated itinerary to access all the rooms of the ground floor.

Since 2003 and made in partnership with UIC and UNIVoC of Vercelli (two local associations for the blind), the museum has tactile panels</strong for 12 of the most representative paintings, with comment and brief guide in braille, and photographic reproductions with black descriptions for visually impaired people. The aim was to produce tactile materials for exhibitions or themed itineraries through the collections.

The museum’s education department is committed to the accessibility issue for disabled people, in fact some members of the staff were specifically trained for that.

The museum offers special tours to people attending disability day care centres (Eureka project) or support groups for disabled in local schools. In addition to that, we offer programmes with activities and tours for patients of nursing homes and senior centres.
