The opening of the Museo Novecento – a showcase for the main currents, artists and languages characterizing the nineteen hundreds – is also a chance to have a look at the literary production for children of the period, focusing on the great illustrators-artists who revolutionized the world of books for kids with their work. Books as projects to discover, as true artistic objects, as fantastic theater scenes, books in which images chase words – or take their place – to speak to kids and youngsters by offering a visual education as good as classically intended Art.
The read aloud and workshop meetings – by MUS.E Association in collaboration with the Civic Museum of Florence – are to take place starting from October through March, every Saturday at 4:30 p.m., at the Museo Novecento.
