The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is offering a new calendar of events for all the family. One Saturday a month from OCTOBER 2014 to MAY 2015 will be dedicated to adults, teenagers and children.
Garage San Marco is once again generously beside the Peggy Guggenheim Collection with financial support, for an imaginative project in which art becomes an experience to be shared by all the family.
All members who sign up for the program will be given a special passport in which the youngest of the family will register their participation in the activities.
Activities are in Italian.


Kids Day is an educational program designed to introduce children between 4 and 10 years of age to modern and contemporary art and to make their visit to the museum more comprehensible. Kids Day occurs every SUNDAY from 3.00 to 4.30 pm at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. For information: 041 2405 401/444

UNICEF dolls at the PGC bookshop

Pigotta is the UNICEF rag doll that helps to save the lives of millions of children around the world. With a minimum donation of 25 euros to UNICEF you may adopt a hand-made pigotta and provide children with a kit of life-saving vaccines that reduce the risk of death in the first five years of their life. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, together with Rubelli, is honored to take part in this initiative.
