BETWEEN NARRATION, ART AND ANCIENT CRAFTS
Commencing with the apprenticeship of the young Michelangelo and Leonardo, resulting in the emergence of two absolute geniuses. Are the Venetian artisans also artists themselves?
The Stories of Children exhibition takes you back in time to learn about the lives of two great artists, Michelangelo and Leonardo, as told by the artist Letizia Galli. From the apprenticeship of the two absolute geniuses in Italian art, the narration will lead you to an encounter with a Venetian artisan, his skilled hands and his useful and simultaneously beautiful works. In particular, it will be an experience replete with colours, perfumes and expressions in the workshop of the oarmaker, the producer of the Fórcole – a typical Venetian rowlock – and other objects carved in wood, with harmonious and indispensable forms for guiding Venetian boats.
A visit that leads to the discovery of characters and secrets that render the lagoon city so unique and which will reflect on the differences and similarities between artisans and artists.
