The Project is the winner of the 10th
edition of the Training Course "PROGETTARE PER TUTTI"
The considered area has environmental and symbolic values
strengthened by the presence of Tiber river. The project of a museum
relevant to the Tiber Island, an area that is "hystorically" inaccessible due to the
high difference in height caused by the orographic layout and the
man approach during the past times, claims the
easy use in high safe conditions and autonomy
through the concept of a multidiscipline project that takes into account
the support available from new technologies.
STRUCTURAL ORGANIZATION OF THE PROJECT:
An equipped route provided with multifunctional totems constitutes a
circular system, pedestrian, protected, multisensorial, accessible for everybody.
The multisensorial route:
Touch, sight, hearing, taste, sense of smell are the five senses taken into
consideration to better and simultaneously guarantee the best
conditions of accessibility and comfort.
1 - A tactile-travelling route.
2 - A luminous "guidance" and anti-intrusive devices are located alongside the internal and external borders of the path.
3 - Modular fitted elements (multimedial totems and sitting devices) delimit the route and fulfil the usability of the
area and the surrounding environmental system.
4 - Attraction poles and communication/information points are arranged every 100 mt.
5 - Trees and aromatic vegetation.
Accessibility of the area:
Two access ways are foreseen:
- pedestrian only, from St. Bartolomeo sq. to the "lungotevere"
at the old jewish ghetto side
through the Fabricio bridge;
- pedestrian and restricted for aid
vehicles and electric mini-bus, from the area behind St. Bartolomeo sq. to the "lungotevere"
at Trastevere side through the Cestio bridge.
An electric minibus stops at St.
Bartolomeo sq. where it is possible to rent electric scooters and baby transporters.
The project includes a ramp protected by physical and detecting anti-intrusive devices (D.P.R. n° 384/78 e l. 122/89), that allows to overcame
the difference in height between
the square and the banks.
Near the mini-bus stop
an elevator-platform (model Alimak P400 P 600)
operates as an alternative
to the above ramp and the existing stairs.
Small ramps help to overcome minor level gaps.
SERVICES AND EQUIPMENT

3 - Modular fitted elements:
3A - Multimedial totem
A 60 x 40 x 220 cm fitted module allows a great design flexibility that takes into account
motion disabilities and the various kinds of handicap.
The following modules are available for fitting:
- tactile maps,
Braille writings for orientation, recognizing of places and dangerous
areas, understanding of historical/cultural and environmental
- tactile and visual supports consisting of three-dimension
models of the whole area
and the main surrounding elements;
-advanced technology probes for people detection that activate the information
systems (audio/video), provided in all the information points;
- communication and telematics information boxes phone, internet
- food dispensers;
- shelter for weather
3B - Sitting devices
- modular fitted benches and ischiatic supports .
4 – Communication and information points :
- dedicated areas equipped
for information and communication, refreshments, natural surroundings
5 – Trees and aromatic vegetation:
- populus nigra "italica", pinus pinea, convolvulus arvensis,
galega officinalis, lythurum salicaria, verbascum thapsus.
THE RIVER WATER FLOW IS A FURTHER ELEMENT FOR GUIDANCE AND POSITIONING
