1 Introduction
Controsenso means contradiction or counter-sense and alludes to
the idea, only apparently strange, to have a blind person as your
guide through their home town. Controsenso: Genoa as you have
never seen it, is a virtual tour of the city of Genoa to reveal in
poetry the everyday life experience of seeing-impaired people.
The choice is story telling through sound and images of what
blind people see and perceive of their city. It conveys strong
feelings in terms of noises, smells, lights and shadows, and
pavement and walls textures. These represent known objects,
places, people and shops: the thousands of details that go unseen
at a conscious level for most of us.
