2021 European Heritage Days

Cultural Heritage: EVERYONE included!
Sat 25 and Sun 26 September

On the occasion of the 2021 European Heritage Days – Cultural Heritage: EVERYONE included! Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September the City of Spoleto, in collaboration with Sistema Museo, promotes a calendar of initiatives to enhance the city’s cultural heritage.

Three extraordinary openings are scheduled for Saturday 25 September for 1,00 €: the Roman House from 19.00 to 22.00, the Rocca Albornoz and National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto from 19.30 to 22.30 (admission until h 21:45) and the Tempietto sul Clitunno from 19.00 to 21.00.

The theme of inclusion has stimulated a reflection on the usability of monuments such as the Rocca Albornoz in Spoleto, also by people with disabilities. For this reason, at 7.30 p.m. on 25 September, “Senti che storia” will be held, a sensory guided tour that will allow the visually impaired to immerse themselves in the history of the imposing 14th-century papal fortress.

During the evening it will be possible to take part in exclusive guided tours of the defensive routes at 7.30 p.m.8 p.m.8.45 p.m. where a guide, starting at sunset, will illustrate the wonderful view from the top of the patrol walkways, made even more fascinating by the night light.

On Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September, the programme also includes guided tours of the defensive routes in the fortress at 3 p.m.4 p.m.5 p.m. (in the event of bad weather the visit to the defensive routes will be replaced by a guided tour of the painting cycle in the Camera Pinta).

A monument that has fascinated for centuries, the Tempietto sul Clitunno” is the title of the exclusive guided tours, scheduled for 25 September at 7.30 p.m. and 8.30 p.m., with a guide who will illustrate the history and uniqueness of this ancient building.

On Sunday 26 September, the programme also includes “Secoli di storia tra le mani” (“Centuries of history in your hands“), a tactile visit to the three-dimensional model of the Basilica of San Salvatore, from 10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 4.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. in the foyer of the Caio Melisso Theatre, a free activity with a limited number of participants.
