Dialogue in the Dark Exhibition (Dialogo nel Buio)

Calata De Mari, Genoa, 16126

The Basics

Give your eyes a rest after the multihued spectacle of marine life in Genoa’s aquarium, and take a turn through this unique exhibition just steps away. Guided through the dark in a small group, you’ll learn how to face the unknown in a lighthearted yet thoughtful way. Conceived as an experience to raise awareness and inclusivity of those with limited vision, Dialogo nel Buio invites visitors to identify and interact with familiar objects and environments using their senses of touch, taste, smell, and hearing.

To save time at the entrance, book your admission ticket in advance. Also available are combination tickets that include entry to the nearby Galata Maritime Museum and Nazario Sauro submarine.
