The show was conceived by Alessandro Baricco and Scuola Holden and will last approximately 10 minutes.

The Exhibition 15baj hosted in the Natural History and Archaeological Museum has been extended to 27 September. For this reason it will still be possible to appreciate the result of the collaboration between the Civic Museums of Vicenza and the company Ulss 8 Berica together with the Centro Diurno proGet. The exhibition, where works by artists with disabilities are showcased, has received flattering feedback from the public both for the beauty of the works themselves, and for the choice of the Natural History and Archaeological Museum as location. The idea of opening up the museum spaces to this type of initiative is part of an inclusive city perspective and is linked to an idea of a dynamic museum increasingly open to the community.
