Have you ever thought about the mysteries of European civilization? Are you curious to decipher paintings and legends of the past, in a playful way, amusing yourself with rock paintings or strange statues? If we have aroused your interest, we invite you to a workshop dedicated to European civilization and culture, which starts from the premise of becoming familiar with the cultural heritage of different historical eras.

Our trip is structured in four workshops, based on countless images and texts. The working method is interactive and starts from identifying and commenting on some visual or literary representations, the purpose being to understand the historical and cultural context in which they were created.

At the end of the workshop, the children will be able to identify and situate in time different artistic representations, they will know how to look at an artwork and they will understand the aesthetic, social, etc. meanings.

Workshop themes

1. The age of rock paintings. Lascaux and Altamira - what these mysterious paintings say about the people of the time. The world of the Olympic gods and their wonderful temples. What do we know about temples, but about amphitheaters? How is a play, but gladiator fights? Mythology - meanings.

2. The wonderful Middle Ages. The mysteries of the castles and the brilliance of the cathedrals. What did the songwriting songs tell? Rebirth and its inventions. Earth and sun, which of them spins? The pattern, books and some famous paintings. What does a linear perspective mean?

3. Europe is changing. Travelers on the waters of the world: explorers and pirates. The golden age of Spain and the daily life of the Northern world. From Don Quixote to Baron Munchausen.

4. What did romance mean? From the stories of the Grimm brothers to the ghosts in the paintings. Impressionists and scenes from contemporary life. Stories from today's museums.

Each session lasts an hour and a half, with a break in the middle (after the first 45 minutes).
