The activities of Accademia dei bambini are temporarily suspended following government regulations.
The video series “Piccoli Maestri”, “Accademia Aperta” and “Momenti” edited by Maicol Casale, document the recent and past workshop of Accademia dei bambini from 2015 to today.
Accademia dei bambini was developed by the neuropediatrician Giannetta Ottilia Latis, who laid the theoretical and operational groundwork while curating its content until June 2019. Since September 2019 pediatrician and neonatologist Gabriele Ferraris is the new curator of the program.
The space, designed by a group of young students from the École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Versailles, led by their teachers Cédric Libert and Elias Guenon, can always take on new configurations by adapting to diverse programmes. Accademia dei bambini presents multidisciplinary activities with the aim of promoting intergenerational dialogue and inviting to a gameplay, creativity and learning experience. Every workshop is conducted by a different “master”. “Masters” are architects, educators, artists, scientists, directors and musicians who willing not only to teach, but also to acquire new inspirations.
The workshops proposed by the “masters” are then developed by a group of educators coordinated by Marta Motterlini, an expert in museum educational programs.
