Gitando skislopeSport & Education

As in every year, a large area of the exhibition is available for sports and will be organized by sports exhibitors, starring disabled and non-disabled.

An obstacle course, for use with wheelchairs, will be available to the public and schools to "prove" first-hand the meaning of architectural barriers.

Culture for all

Museo Omero, present at the Fair for the second year, will bring a tactile path and will explain how to know the works of art, even for people who have vision problems. It will be available to all visitors, to help everyone to discover and understand the art with other senses than sight, such as touch. Led by experts, in the Museum you can learn how to understand the art without seeing it.

Business and Tourism

3rd Edition of BIFA “Buy Italy for All” Workshop on Tourism and Accessible Tourism, where all the tourist facility owners can come in and meet Italian Tour Operators, Travel Agencies and Associations from Europa, Russia, USA and Brazil, all interested in buying Italian Tourism and Accessible Tourism.
