Dissident voices

Activity for middle schools

Geometry, my love!

Workshop for children aged 4 to 10

Palazzo Strozzi's philosophy

Round table for museum educators, guides and teachers
Palazzo Strozzi experiments with new ways of experiencing art through conversations taking place in the exhibition rooms, workshops and accessibility projects, to live engaging and stimulating experiences. The Educational Department of the Florentine museum tells us all about itself during a round table dedicated to professionals working in the fields of Education in museums and to those who love this job!

Different voices
Activity for elderly people with Alzheimer's Disease and their career
Different voices is a dialogic tour of the exhibition: the participants are actively engaged in the observation of the works and are invited to understand the world by using imagination and not memory, by being inventive rather than by using logical and cognitive skills. In collaboration with IRE Venezia.

Let's talk about...
