Summer excursions with Victoria Square Project
Victoria is going on holiday…
Two independent two-day cycles
Friday June 24th and Saturday June 25th, 17.00-19.00
Friday July 1st and Saturday July 2nd, 18.00-20.00
For children aged 6 to12
Summer has arrived, time to discover the museums and parks of our city!
Through two visits to museums and parks, the children explore different perspectives and discuss different subjects such as the identity and the way it has been depicted in artworks starting from the antiquities till the present times.
After the explorations in the museum and in the park where the participants will have the opportunity to get closer not only with works of different eras and styles but also with the same concepts of museum and exhibition, the children will participate in creative activities inspired by the visits.
Why are people involved in art? What can an ancient Greek statue have to do with a modern giant digital installation?
We are waiting for you in our neighborhood to create our own answers!
