Activities

Workshop

    The main point of the school workshop is the Museum, conceived as “active memory of a community”, especially for young customers.

    Cultural goods, which are preserved in our Museum, and our archaeological sites are the record of customs and traditions, and the expertise of a people. As such, they are a direct source of information and represent a precious connection between past, present and future.

    Our workshops are a special chance for introducing pupils to our history and artifacts in an engaging and proactive way.

    The mediation work of a teacher is fundamental for introducing opportunities for in-depth learning and practical works in every experience, e.g. possibility of touching and handling some artefacts’ reproductions, creating them, simulate moments of study and research on the models for archaeological practices.

    Thus, visiting a Museum becomes a meaningful experience, that is quite different from a traditional school trip.
