“Vivi Museo”: summer educational camp in the Vicenza Museums
From June 20 to July 29, numerous educational camps dedicated to primary school children organized by the Vicenza Museums in collaboration with Scatola Cultura
During sumer holidays, the city center will come alive thanks to the "Vivi Museo" educational camps, promoted by the Civic Museums of Vicenza, including Palazzo Chiericati Museum and the Archaeological Naturalistic Museum together with the partners of the city museum circuit: Intesa Sanpaolo for Gallerie d'Italia - Vicenza, Cisa A. Palladio for Palladio Museum, Diocesan Museum of Vicenza, Museo del Gioiello, with the coordination of the Cooperative Scatola Cultura.
"For the second consecutive year we are proposing an entertainment modality for primary school children during the summer, between June and July", explains the councilor for culture Simona Siotto. "Finally, with the didactic activities resumed at full capacity, we can once again welcome the children to the museums of the city and involve them in formative and exciting experiences thanks to expert educators. The Scatola Cultura initiative is part of the three-year project proposed by the cooperative that deals with museum education in the Civic Museums of Vicenza ".
From June 20 to July 29, from Monday to Friday, from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm, children who have attended primary school will therefore be able to try their hand at the itineraries offered to discover the numerous finds that "live" in museums by playing and experimenting, through the activities of museum teaching.
Every day the children will be welcomed by an educational educator from Scatola Cultura and by an educator from the partner museum to be accompanied to the host museum: every day a different museum, every day a unique experience to experience the collections of city museums even in summer in a different way.
The leitmotif of the six weeks will be the five senses. A unique adventure that will once again unite the city museums in a path dedicated to children and their curiosity and, consequently, to their families, offering summer support to working parents.
The meeting point will always be Piazza Matteotti from where you will leave for each of the six host museums.
At the end of the weeks a final musical show will be offered at the cloisters of Santa Corona, in collaboration with the Quartet Society and Ullallà Teatro.
At the Palazzo Chiericati Museum, paintings and sculptures will be the pretext to discover with hands, ears, eyes, nose and palate how much the perception of art has changed from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Thanks to a path designed for the occasion, we will relive moments of everyday life made immortal by works of art, to surprise us all a little more budding artists.
At the Archaeological Naturalistic Museum the five senses will be teased to tell how in ancient times men used them indifferently to approach nature. A journey through time to remember our origins and how much animals were part of everyday life.
At the Jewellery Museum we will play with keywords to associate them with each sense. Through the interactive exploration of the different sections of the museum, from those relating to the most ancient to contemporary artifacts, it will be possible to experiment with materials, techniques and creative processes in order to understand the value of jewels in history in a playful-didactic way.
The Diocesan Museum will propose to explore the five senses in a perceptive journey that has to do with time, places and different artistic languages: from the foods that were tasted in the ancient Roman Vicetia, to the smells that emanate flowers and fruit trees of the brolo of the Bishop's Palace; from the colors associated with music, to the thousand forms of extra-European art in an ideal world tour in 8 rooms, without forgetting that what you will see will inevitably be transported into the image.
At the Gallerie d’Italia - Vicenza, starting from the most curious details hidden in the rooms, it will be possible to observe, taste, listen, smell and touch the events that reveal the history of the Palace and its wonderful art. An all-round adventure between frescoes, paintings and decorative elements that will lead to the creation of an original creation developed through the senses.
Finally, the Palladio Museum will welcome all the children in its headquarters, to look at the splendid Palladian palace together, to touch and smell the different construction materials, listen to the sounds of today and imagine those of yesterday, savor with the imagination the magnificent banquets with which the hosts welcomed distinguished guests.
All activities will take place in compliance with anti-Covid regulations.
