Didactic Itineraries

Specific didactic programmes have been conceived for school groups.

Today the project is firstly based on the differentiation of the offer according to the age bracket: many different itineraries are planned not only for the choise of the subject but also for the importance of the topics and for the type of language used.

All the itineraries allow the active involvement of young visitors and the allow a better approach to the works of art through a recreational experience. This is thought as a chance for having fun but also as a motivating force towards a gradual comprehension of the work of art.

From time to time, visitors will analyze all the artistic currents, kinds of objects, pictorial techniques, fashions and customs. During the itinerary, didactic materials and working papers are given for a better and depper vision and in order to give a boost to curiosity by playing.
