Starting from 5 November, Accademia dei bambini presents the workshop “Nel bosco” (In the wood), a new project curated by Teresa D’Agostino, architect and landscape architect, and Marianna Merisi, landscape architect and illustrator.

Joining the workshop, children walk into a refuge made of plants with colorful barks, bare branches or covered with evergreen leaves, autumn flowers and berries.
The large plants create an oasis that children are invited to observe and learn about in order to protect and preserve it.
Botanical fragments, clay molds and then plaster models are all that children will need to create a miniature of an imaginary garden; a little reminder that all of us are part of a collective project to safeguard the landscape.

The workshop calendar is published below and is updated weekly with new dates.
To join the workshops, please fill in the online form published in the event sheets.

Every workshop at Accademia dei bambini is dedicated to children and family and it is conceived 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.
