Accademia dei bambini continues the round of laboratories dedicated to the exploration of the theme of language. After having experimented with the interactions between bees and birds and newborns, the workshop curated by Studio òbelo, with Claude Marzotto and Maia Sambonet, explores animals with their wordless language to generate original forms of writing and drawing.

The new workshop “A come Accademia” will start from 6 November. In this new activity conceived by studio òbelo kids are invited to create an manifesto for Accademia. The first letter of the alphabet turns into an imaginative space in which to experiment with the creative possibilities of graphics, shape and colour.
The schedule of appointments, updated every two weeks, is published below.

The video-story of the new laboratories is collected in the “Piccoli Maestri” series, curated by Maicol Casale.

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.

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.
