Diversity and inclusion at the Uffizi Galleries are a pivotal topic for our education staff
The Uffizi Galleries announce proudly that the Eudcation staff received today an important award for the policy held on the theme of "Diversity and Inclusion": Renato Brunetta, Minister for Public Administration, presented the award in the hands of Anna Soffici, coordinator of the Cultural Mediation and Accessibility Area of the Uffizi Galleries, and Franca Berioli, head of the Administrative Division of the Uffizi Galleries.
Even in times of pandemic, the staff of the Galleries has kept a high focus on the issues of inclusion and accessibility with projects that keep in mind the needs of various audiences, and more specifically with the production of videos in LIS and IS, the creation of a Social History of Museums and an Activity Bag, as well as the creation of a tactile book dedicated to one of the Uffizi's most famous masterpieces, Botticelli's Primavera.
The Galleries competed with the "Uffizi for Everyone" project in the call for proposals "VALORE PUBBLICO: Public Administration that works," an initiative of SDA Bocconi School of Management carried out under the patronage of the Minister for Public Administration, the Department of Public Function, ANCI and UPI and in collaboration with GEDI Publishing Group. The intent of this operation is to stimulate innovation and modernization in the public sector, enhancing good practices that allow for more efficient, inclusive and modern services, activating virtuous circles of knowledge diffusion by supporting the initiation of new change processes.
