The Botanical Garden30 min
Ages 11 to 13
We will set out to discover the Botanical Garden of Palermo: the Ficus Zone, the Palm grove, the cactus greenhouse... We will trace back the history and main features of the plants, carefully choosing the traits to observe and draw: from the trunk's appearance to the minutest details of the leaf that will help us shape up images of a landscape. Prepare sheets and pencils.
Meet Your Guide
My name is Bianca, and I am an artistic mediator who works between Italy and Germany. Over the years I have had the opportunity to collaborate with various international museums and cultural institutions. Through these experiences, I have developed my passion and knowledge in the field of mediation and art education. I studied contemporary art in Italy, first in Milan and then in Venice; my experience is therefore linked not only to the history and theory of art but also to the practice of art itself. The contemporary and the history of modern art are my main specializations, but I am passionate about medieval and Renaissance art. What I like most about the profession of mediator is the possibility to confront myself with a heterogeneous audience. I am interested in listening to the comments of the participants of one of my tours and dedicating time to an exchange of opinions, ideas, and points of view.
