> OUR PROJECTS > MULTISENSORY VATICAN MUSEUMS' GARDENS TOUR
On a sun-blessed evening in mid-May, the Italian & International Patrons came together for their annual visit and gathered for an exclusive soirée at the Vatican. Chapter Members and guests attended from Italy and all over the world, including France, Spain, Poland, the United States and as far away as from Argentina and Chile.
The evening commenced with a private visit in the Sistine Chapel, where Drs. Serlupi, Salandri and Cometti illustrated the breathtaking ceiling masterpieces. Following the awe-inspiring moments captured in the renowned chapel of the Apostolic Palace, the guests toured theflourishingVatican gardens and learned about the new multi-sensory project for children and adults with vision and/or hearing impairment.
Invited speakers included the much-respected Professor Alessio Conti, a blind representative who explained the power and importance of our project, Father Mark Haydu and Angelo Trocchia, President of Unilever Italia.
Guests mingled during a sunset reception at Casina Pio IV, the Vatican City Pontifical Academy of Science, where they experienced the ethereal voices of a madrigal choir.
This special occasion and project were made possible by the generous support of Unilever Italia and Patron donations.
