The Compagnia dei Cammini’s immersive walks for the visually impaired, blind and hard of hearing

Monday, 21 March 2022 11:19

Compagnia dei Cammini has opened its trips to disabled people thanks to a collaboration with NoisyVision, a non-profit organization that supports people with visual and/or hearing impairments. These immersive walking tours will allow those who are partially sighted, blind or hearing impaired to walk together with walkers without sensory difficulties.

The exchange of experiences and sensations is very enriching 

“Walking with someone who can not see means savouring the wonder of the journey even more,” says Luca Gianotti, coordinator of Compagnia dei Cammini,  “Accompanying people with sensory impairments does not mean having to constantly be at their disposal,” explains Dario Sorgato, founder of NoisyVision. “Although there are some basic precautions, accompanying the visually impaired is much simpler and more natural than you would imagine. And the exchange of experiences and sensations is very enriching for the group."

The first walk is in the southern Salento region

Compagnia dei Cammini’s first trip open to all will be in Salento from 23 to 30 March, a week of walking between olive groves, terraces, Mediterranean scrub and dry stone walls, with very modest gradients, partly near the sea and overlooking the magnificent cliffs from which you can see Greece and Albania.

The Brigands’ Walk between Lazio and Abruzzo

The second trip open to all will be the Brigands’ Walk between Lazio and Abruzzo from 26 May to 2 June, on the ancient border between the Papal State and the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, passing through little towns, nature reserves and Apennine landscapes to discover an intense and authentic land.
