Spring is, par excellence, the season of “rebirth”. After the long winter rest, nature reawakens, flowers blow, the naked trees cover with leaves… Would you like to enjoy this evocative show discovering the secret gardens guarded by the old town of Ferrara, furthermore without worrying about accessibility? If your answer is “yes”, “Interno Verde” is the event for you!
Thanks to this event, organized by Il Turco association, on May 12th and 13th more than 60 secret gardens of Ferrara will be open to the public, who will have the chance to enjoy those secret islands, rich in suggestions and memories, through which you can read the story, the changes and the events lived by the city.
The “Interno Verde” festival, that this year reaches its third edition, pays a lot of attention to the needs of visitors with motoric limitations. On the map delivered to who registers to the event, a symbol placed next to every address will specify the accessibility degree for people with motoric issues, specifying if the location is fully accessible autonomously or you’ll need a companion to help you. However, the event staff will always be at the attendees disposal to ease their entry and visit. Furthermore, the detailed report of the spaces involved in the 2018 edition is almost completed: it will include pictures and descriptions of the festival locations, plus the nearest parking lots. Don’t you use the car and, for you, public transport is tricky? You can count on the “Muoversi” and “Giuseppina” services, provided by the Municipality of Ferrara and addressed to people with a disability aged between 18 and 65 and over-75 elderly people, respectively. For more information about how to use them and their costs, you can refer to this page.
