INTESA SANPAOLO: FOR YOUNGSTERS AGED 4-13,
A LEGENDARY SUMMER AT THE GALLERIE D’ITALIA
Palazzo Leoni Montanari hosts free creative workshops linked to the exhibition Myth. Gods and Heroes for summer camp participants
Vicenza, 5 June 2019 – Today saw the launch at Palazzo Leoni Montanari (the Vicenza complex of Intesa Sanpaolo’s Gallerie d’Italia) of an educational initiative for children and teens who take part in summer camps. The initiative focuses not only on art but also games and fun, with eight different workshops (all free of charge when booked by summer camps) inspired by mythological figures that feature both on the wall decor of the Baroque building and in the masterpieces of the temporary exhibition MITO. Dei ed eroi (Myth. Gods and heroes), which marks the twentieth anniversary of the opening of the museum to the public.
The educational summer project, in partnership with the Municipality of Vicenza's Department of Education, is open to children and teenagers between the ages of 4 and 13 at summer camps in Vicenza and in a number of other towns in the province. The project involves exciting and original programmes linked to the temporary exhibitions and permanent collections of the museum complex. Thousands of youngsters have already taken part in previous events, discovering art through fascinating stories, curious facts and anecdotes, in a light-hearted and playful approach that appeals to all ages. All the initiatives touch on historic-artistic topics with a narrative and sensorial approach that encourages interaction and creative expression, using a wide range of materials and techniques.
