In the city
Polverigi is a village strongly defined by its mediaeval architecture. As with many historical places in Italy, not everywhere may be fully accessible for people with reduced mobility, especially when wandering through the more ancient part. Most restaurants, bars and shops in Italy fulfil the accessibility requirements by law (e.g. accessible bathrooms), with few exceptions when historical conditions of the building prevent them.
Accessibility in terms of information (websites, captions, etc.) are generally taken into consideration by public and private institutions (e.g. bus service), but currently there are no mandatory requirements on the subject in Italy, so conditions may vary.
At the campus
We aim to make the IETM Campus Polverigi as accessible as possible for our participants. Due to budget restrictions and being dependent on the local infrastructure, we cannot always guarantee that the conditions will be the same from one meeting to another. Nevertheless, for this meeting we are able to:
- Send you a large print version of the programme;
- Offer free registration for your support worker;
- Provide speech-to-text captions for all sessions of the Campus programme – details of these services will be available online upon confirmation of the full programme;
- Ensure that all the venues hosting the programme are wheelchair accessible.
If you have any questions about the accessibility at the IETM Campus, please get in touch with us by writing to email@example.com.
Main meeting venues
