“Accademia Aperta” is a video project through which Accademia dei bambini retraces the workshops realized over the last 5 years.
Developed by neuropediatrician Giannetta Ottilia Latis and now curated by pediatrician and neonatologist Gabriele Ferraris, Accademia dei bambini is an independent platform dedicated to childhood.

For the last 5 years it has welcomed hundreds of children and adults stimulated by the always different activities realized by “masters”: architects, educators, artists, scientists, movie directors and musicians. During the temporary closure of the spaces, “Accademia Aperta” is a virtual but lively place of sharing, playing and learning through the publication of materials, partly unreleased and arranged according to thematic areas.

The new video series by Maicol Casale and published once per week documents the work of the “masters”, the evolution of the spaces, the dialogues between generations and the collective events. Creating this visual repertoire is a playful and entertaining occasion to reimagine the role of these personalities eager not only to teach, but also to learn and transmit curiosity, emotions and suggestions.

As Giannetta Ottilia Latis wrote in the Quaderno dedicated to Accademia dei Bambini, “We want teachers who are wary of asserting themselves, who want to test their own most authentic forms of expertise. These teachers will be men and women who salute the children with chivalrous gestures, expecting to receive one in return… They will constitute a surprise, an adventure, a pleasure, a scare… Teachers willing to play, to put themselves on the line… Teachers who constitute a question mark…
