In the heart of Cosenza, a unique initiative transforms the way you explore the city. The project "Cosenza in the dark“, created by Sam Odv in collaboration with the Italian Union of the Blind and Visually Impaired of Cosenza, offers an unprecedented opportunity to discover the hidden beauties of the city through the eyes of the blind.

Cosenza in the dark, a unique experience

During this extraordinary experience, which takes place in these days of May 2024, four sighted participants are blindfolded and guided by four blind boys through the fascinating streets and places steeped in history and culture of Cosenza.

With the precious support of experts of the caliber of the vice president of Uici Cosenza, Roberto Crocco, and the renowned local tour operator William Gatto, participants will have the invaluable opportunity to immerse themselves in the artistic and cultural treasures of the city, ranging from the ancient old city to the renowned Bilotti Open-Air Museum.

This innovative approach opens the doors to a new concept of the artistic-cultural heritage of the city, allowing participants to perceive and appreciate the richness and beauty of Cosenza in a completely renewed way.

Cooperation and experimentation
