Accademia dei bambini, Fondazione Prada’s space specifically created for children is restarting its activities after the temporary closure due to the sanitary emergency. With the “Accademia Aperta” project, a video series by Maicol Casale that revisited the workshops held from May 2015 to February 2020, Accademia dei bambini has remained active through the creation of a virtual space even during this period of forced isolation.

From September 19 a process of exploration continues around the complex theme of language. After experiencing the interactions between bees and birds and silence as a form of communication, the new workshop investigates the origin of human language starting from the newborn. Charles Darwin, Konrad Lorenz and Jean Piaget are some of the mentors of this research that is also interested in the physiology of our species. It will be fun to discover how evolution has taught us to foster our relationship with others and the world from the very first breath.
