Educational service


Educational services have seat in the Museo dei Bozzetti. They began in 2003 with the purpose to supply a more complete knowledge of the artistic context of Pietrasanta about contemporary sculpture, to exploit the museum collection of the models and to make easy the approach to the contemporary art.

Through a didactic methodology and clear rules, rise to the sculptural techniques, to the tactile characteristics of different materials and on their possibilities of combination are given. Techniques and rules are deduced by the same works and proposed in form of game, with more visual than verbal explanations, using for specific and technical clarifications, the reproductions of the marble laboratory and foundry that exists inside the Museum. Are really visual and manual experiences that educate children to the language of Art giving them rise to tactile characters of objects and materials, to the expressiveness of the forms suggesting them a way to know that they same test realizing by themselves their own works.



Educational section articulates in two specific, autonomous but correlated, areas: School and Public. To leave from school, the section went broadening in the time the actual fan of activity involving with complete proposals, different public: families, associations, disabled people, cultural tourism.
