Introduction

After the 2017 Editon (1st Attack), this year University of Brescia propose the 2nd Attack!
The
International Summer School (ISS) for Advanced Studies in the form of workshop wil be focused once again on the theme of accessibility to cultural heritage and its enhancement with an interdisciplinary approach in the perspective of Universal Design.
The Summer School refers to skills that at DICATAM have been developed over the last 20 years and have seen the birth of the Brixia Accessibility Lab.The project is also connected to the new network Italian Accessibility Labs which involves, in addition to the University of Brescia, the Polytechnic of Turin, the University Ca 'Foscari of Venice,  the University of Trieste, the University of Florence, the University Federico II of Naples and the Mediterranean University of Reggio Calabria.
T
his synergy is related to an educational offer where the concept of accessibility, read in holistic form, as well as being a enhancement tool for people, it is also a collective resource that can elevate the social capital of a community. More accessible environments and services, in fact, while expanding individual freedoms, social opportunities and knowledge, encourage each person to participate in community life and to contribute to the growth of the society.
In particular accessibility to cultural heritage is first and foremost the ability to enjoy it, to relate, to make it an experience area.
The accessibility of cultural heritage therefore it is not only a technical or regulatory aspect, but cuts across many different knowledge and sensitivity. The ISS has the ambition to be a place of education and discussion, a pretext to induce experts from different disciplines to confront on this issue, an invitation to reflect seriously on the meaning of Heritage.
The ISS is able to meet the specific needs expressed by the working world and academia, providing a current specialization course aligned with the best practices of the best universities in designing.

Educational goals

- Providing methodological and operational planning instruments relating to issues of accessibility to cultural heritage and to its concrete and real enhancement for: implementing design strategies on cultural heritage and to the scale of the building that the urban scale; giving the designer a social profile as well as technical; understanding how actions that promote the cultural heritage and culture have a high socio-economic content both for the visitor and the residents which guard that good;
-
Favoring '"horizontal learning" in which students, working side by side, have the opportunity to transmit and share their knowledge;
- Operating a collective verification of theoretical approaches and interdisciplinary reference systems  in order to expand the individual information field.

During the 1st Attack a general view on the relationship between Cidneo hill and its Castle and the city of Brescia was analyzed. This year we will enter into the Castle and in the surrounding  park on the hill to focus the designin of some given particular area.
