The Museums of Empolese Valdelsa’s programme for people with Alzheimer’s and their carers

A year of events, activities, encounters and experiences

The MuDEV (Museo Diffuso Empolese Valdelsa) promotes Museums and Alzheimer’s, a year of meetings, activities and experiences aimed at people with Alzheimer’s and their carers: from  January 17 (2018) to the end of September, 20 meetings will be held in various museums and libraries of the Empolese Valdelsa area.

The project is curated by the BeGo – The Benozzo Gozzoli Museum. The museum’s director Serena Nocentini, with Stefania Bertini and Alice Vignoli – began the project in 2016, from which time it has been entirely promoted and produced by the MuDEV and by the Union of the Empolese Valdelsa Municipalities. The project is funded by Tuscany Region, in the framework of the PIC 2017.
Tuscany Region and the cultural association Immaginario Firenze are mapping the Tuscan museums that are working together to make themselves accessible to the elderly with Alzheimer’s and to those who care for them.

Collaborators and participators in the project are: RSA V. Chiarugi (Empoli) – RSA A. Volta (Empoli) – RSA Il Castello (Montelupo Fiorentino) – The Memory House Circle – (Montelupo Fiorentino) – RSA S. Maria Misericordia (Montespertoli) – EMD Ciapetti (Castelfiorentino) – RSA P. Neruda (Castelfiorentino) – Villa Serena (Montaione) – RSA Le Vele (Fucecchio) – Day Center I Tigli (Certaldo)

The report on the project at regional level is available on the website www.museiperlalzheimer.com while the route and the involvement of Empoli Valdelsa are available on the MuDEV website at www.museiempolesevaldelsa.it/musei-per-lalzheimer

The initiative is free and open to all.
