Toccare il cielo con un dito. Dallo skyline intangibile alla silhouette tattile

By Ivana Passamani, Francesca Trotti and Andrea Schincariol

Abstract

Disegnare il profilo del paesaggio contro il cielo trasmette conoscenza: una linea orizzontale evoca la pianura, linee curvilinee le colline, linee scalettate gli edifici. Come comunicarlo ai non vedenti e renderli partecipi del mondo circostante? Lo skyline è trattato nell’arte come forma espressiva fortemente rappresentativa: alcune sue immagini sono, qui, un riferimento di studio sull’accessibilità al/del Castello di Brescia. Si individuano punti visuali dove tradurre l’immagine dello skyline (intangibile) in silhouette tattile (tangibile), in base ai principi teorici del Disegno e dell’Universal Design. Drawing of the landscape’s outline against the sky transmits knowledge: a horizontal line suggests the plain, the curved lines represent the hills, jagged lines are for the buildings. How to communicate it to blind people and make them take part of the surrounding world? The skyline is considered in the art contest as a strongly representative expressive form: here, some of art’s images are a study reference on the accessibility to/of the castle of Brescia. Visual points are identified: here we translate the skyline’s image (intangible) into tactile silhouette (tangible), according to the theoretical principles of Drawing and Universal design
