LA FANTASTICA MANOVELLA
Automatic machine for inventing tales- Workshop from 8 to 10 years
A tribute to Gianni Rodari.
Tales are like tagliatelle: who has still the time to hand make them? Though everybody loves them.
After years of research, Ghigos invented the “Fantastica a manovella”, the machine for tales.
You just need to mix the ingredients and turn.. It’s a “creative kit” for tales that will last forever:
Description of workshop: mix the traditional fairy tales to create new rhyming.
The five boxes of “The Fantastica” will give to the childen the words for building new stories. Then the children will illustrate the tale created with drawing contained in the other boxes of “The Fantastica.”
Notes on diversity. A tribute to Bruno Munari. Workshop from 8 to 12 years
Not everyone in the world do the same gestures to show that it’s time to go, that we are hungry or that someone … is really bothering us!
To learn the different forms of gestures from all over the world, it can be useful a memory game: to become expert … you just need to start to discover the cards!
Description of workshop: memory game consisting of 60 pairs of intercultural gestures, hidden behind windows on a huge modular and reconfigurable “carpet/playing field”.
Only after finding the couple of gestures, you can keep the windows open; as in the conventional memory game, wins the team that finds the most pairs.
