Exhibitions and events

On the occasion of the exhibition Arturo Martini. La trama dei sogni, we have put together a rich programme of workshops for children and young people.

The next appointments:

Keramography workshop

Through the art of clay and Arturo Martini’s innovative research, young aspiring artists will have the opportunity to express their creativity and create unique, personalised prints.

Each child will be guided through the printmaking process, from preparing the matrix to applying the clay, providing them with a valuable practical and educational experience. Following in Martini’s footsteps, participants will explore the infinite creative possibilities offered by clay, transforming it into a tool to bring their own images and ideas to life.

6th – 20th April / 25th May, 4-5.30 pm | cost €15

The Circus of Wonders

Starting from Martini’s works in the exhibition and from the illustrated book “Il Circo delle Nuvole” (The Circus of Clouds) by Gek Tessaro, each child will have the opportunity to explore the circus theme and bring his or her favourite characters to life through an engaging collage process using coloured paper.

With the help of our educators, the young artists will be guided through the creative process, from the selection of materials to the final composition, offering them a valuable experience of artistic exploration.

18th May, 4-5.30 pm | cost €15

Oops! I lost the thread

Starting with Martini’s works in the exhibition, children will experiment with the technique of weaving using a small loom.

They will be guided through the weaving process, learning the basics of this ancient art and discovering the infinite creative possibilities it offers. With the assistance of our experienced educators, participants will have the opportunity to create unique and personalised textiles, exploring colours, textures and motifs inspired by Martini’s works.
