pittore October 25: Painting with Light
Based on the show Ho un punto fra le mani,
theater workshop in collaboration with Tam Teatromusica
Peggy Guggenheim COLLECTION | GrOUP 1 | 4 pm

The workshop aims to make children aware of visual art in relation to digital painting, an innovative language that all the participants will experience. We will begin by watching a show, Ho un punto fra le mani, itself made possible by digital painting, a kind of uninhibited multi-sensorial game based on the art of Kandinskij. Going through the different parts of the show, children and parents can begin a dialogue with the point and the line, which exist both in space and create spaces, become energy, and symbols of the body in movement. Participants can paint abstract pictures in an explosion of colours.

pittore November 15: Histories of Boats
Visit to the Museo Storico Navale, Venice, and workshop
In collaboration with the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia
museo storico navale, venice | GrOup 1 & Group 2 | 3 pm

In a creative and entertaining way, the most typical, well-known boats constructed in Venice, and their diverse characteristics and functions will be presented at the Museum of Naval History, alternating between brief explanations, tales and interactive experiences.
Each boat, characterised by a different name, had a precise use, and was adapted for the particular environment of the lagoon. The extraordinary models of the galere or galeazze recount the histories about the wars for the maritime dominance, and the important commercial links between the Republic of Venice and the rest of the world. Meanwhile the faithful reconstruction of the last Bucintoro, the richest and most luxurious boat in the history of the Serenissima, revives the famous splendour and parties of the Doges.
Moreover sandalo, mascareta, puparin and gondola are the singular names most closely associated with the tradition of the boats of the lagoon, and are still widely in use today. They allow us to discover the secrets of construction, and the characteristics and curiosities linked to the art of navigation, and to the pleasure of being mobile within the intricate labyrinth of canals. And Peggy’s gondola has so many things to tell.
