Florence suitable for children

From the weekend of the Immaculate one leaves a month full of activities for young and old

Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 December at 11:30 am, Search for the Museo Galileo is scheduled. Through clues, games and nursery rhymes, told by an operator of the Museum, adults and children can have fun to discover details and curiosities about the beautiful scientific instruments of the museum collection. The visit lasts approximately 90 minutes and at least one adult is required throughout the activity.
Saturday 8 December 2018 at 15.30 will take place Art and Science. Open dance rehearsals. As in an imaginary test room the tracks, geometries and other reference patterns that underlie the technique of the dancer and the choreographer will be highlighted. In this show-laboratory, art, dance and music intertwine in a plot that shows the complexity of the balance and the movement of the body in space, revealing the invisible thread that binds the art of dance to the world of drawing and sculpture. With Arianna Ilardi Choreography by Arianna Ilardi Music by Domenico Berta Curated by Stella Battaglia.
Sunday 9 December at 11.00 for Breakfast at the Museum is the time to draw with the dark room, edited by Stella Battaglia. The darkroom was long used by artists to objectively establish reality in their works. The workshop traces the experiences of artists such as Vermeer and Canaletto up to those of the Impressionists, and experiments with the relationship between camera obscura, drawing and the advent of photography, which influenced the birth of artistic movements in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The meeting point for those booked is at 10.30 am at the ticket office. Before starting the activity, the museum will offer participants a tasty breakfast provided by Antica Pasticceria Caffè S. Florence, thanks to the support of Opera Laboratori Fiorentini.
Sunday 9 December 2018 at 3 pm and 4 pm, finally, the science of soap bubbles returns. After the success of the October 7th appointment, the Galileo Museum presents "The science of soap bubbles". Sculptures of bubbles, colorful and giant bubbles will enchant the audience: a fascinating show, suitable for adults and children, which will involve the public in fun games with soap bubbles.
At the end of the snack activity for everyone offered by Mukki.
