Accademia dei bambini organises free workshops for children and families every weekend. In May, illustrator Rossana Maggi presents a new workshop titles “Dall’alto” (From above) where children will fly high in the sky over cities, seas and mountains. Using different techniques and materials, they will create new images as a part of an animated story on the overhead projector.
The workshop starts on May 14 and will run every weekend until 26 June, except for Sunday 19 June.
Every workshop at Accademia dei bambini is conducted by a different “master”. “Masters” are architects, educators, artists, scientists, directors and musicians who are 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.
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 programs.
The video-story of the laboratories is collected in the “Piccoli Maestri” series, curated by Maicol Casale and Claudia Ferri.
