Abstract

The increasing interest of the World Health Organization and the European Union towards the concept of disability and active aging has been encouraging research on the problems encountered by people labeled as “weak users” in all kind of contexts. If theaters and parks are not accessible to all, the numbers of visitors and users significantly decrease, since it is not just people with impaired mobility who are forced to give up visiting these resources, but also their family members, friends, or aids. It is clearly important to engage well-aimed actions to guarantee the accessibility and enjoyment of open spaces, both within and outside towns (such as an archaeological park), quickstarting from minimal measures ensuring an immediate response among citizens.
