All the didactic and educational activities offered by the museums of the Territorial Museum Network of the Province of Lucca.
The museum system is launching some educational tutorials edited by the art historian Lucia Morelli which offer creative activities for children: containing references to individual artists and currents in the history of art, while maintaining an important focus on the collections of local museums. In the workshop entitled "Light and colours", from the monotype technique, we go on the discovery of the museum houses and the great characters who lived there such as Pascoli, Puccini and Carducci. In the workshop entitled “nature, materials and symbols” nature, materials and symbols are explored, drawing inspiration from the works contained in museums and stamps are built with recycled materials. In the workshop entitled "The space, the story and the imaginary" the collage technique is used to build imaginary stories with the characters and objects contained in the Museums. In the workshop entitled "Narrating in pictures. Create your PopUp book with the story you want". We have chosen a universal story, "One and Seven" written by Gianni Rodari, one of the great authors of children's literature, who teaches the principles of solidarity, equality and peace between peoples.
