CURIOSITÀ MAI VISTE
Alla scoperta di quei piccoli dettagli e di quelle grandi bellezze che per vari motivi gli occhi non vedono. Perchè nascosti, poco visibili, chiusi da porte e portoni oppure semplicemente tralasciati nella fretta di visitare la nostra Pirano in poco tempo.
Portone in legno con figure, via Libertà num. 28, ex via Marciana,
per i Piranesi doc ”strada de drento”
È la casa più alta del vicinato con i suoi quattro piani. Ha un bel portale di legno con figure che colpisce anche il passante più distratto. Le figure poste di profilo sono affrontate, uguali e dentro ad un ovale. Probabilmente è rappresentato un militare visto che indossa una divisa e una parrucca. Sopra l’ovale forse un elmo con piuma, sotto un tamburo, un corno e una faretra con frecce. Al primo piano un balconcino barocco. Nella chiave di volta della portafinestra sul balcone, c’è la data del 1797 e due iniziali A.P. Le guide turistiche fanno a gara per inventare storie sui possibili inquilini di questa casa della fine della Serenissima.

OČEM SKRITE ZANIMIVOSTI
Ker so majhni detajli in velike umetnine včasih skrite očem vas vabimo, da jih odkrijete z nami.
Lesena vrata s podobami v Ulici svobode 28, nekoč Ulici Marciana,
za stare Pirančane »notranja cesta«
Govorimo o najvišji, štirinadstropni hiši v soseščini. Njena prelepa lesena vrata prevzamejo pogled marsikaterega mimoidočega sprehajalca. V dveh ovalih sta v les izrezbana enaka profila, ki najverjetneje upodabljata vojaka, oblečenega v uniformo in z lasuljo na glavi. Nad ovali čelada (šlem) s peresom, pod njimi boben, rog in tok s puščicami. Nad vrati, v prvem nadstropju, sta na kamnitem oboku vrat baročnega balkona izklesani letnica 1797 in začetnici A.P., ki vodiče po piranskem mestnem jedru spodbujata k iskanju zgodb o stanovalcih hiše zgrajene v (zadnjem) obdobju Beneške republike.

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
