The environmental and social integration of people of different abilities situations, the elderly or those who are still limited in the physical and sensory mobility is certainly one of the most important challenges that each country faces in its path towards the future. Integration is linked to the use of space, the ability to move, to use the services, the opportunity to participate like everyone else in society. If these problems exist, they are amplified when combining the different situations skills the ability to enjoy and to enjoy the landscape, archaeological, artistic and cultural in general, especially in a country like Italy.
