schools

Guided tours and workshops for schools give teachers and students the keys to reading and understanding the language of contemporary art, allowing everyone to enjoy works of art from one of the most important collections in the world in a constructive and stimulating way.

Approaching contemporary art requires attention and independent thinking. It teaches us to establish connections between things and discover unexpected perspectives on the past and present. For this reason, our guided tours offer many interdisciplinary connections. Contemporary art tells us about many aspects of the world in which we live: sharing the outing with teachers of different subjects leads to lateral and surprising interpretations of the exhibitions.
