Now in its second edition, The Museum Goes to School project sees MAXXI installing a number of works from its permanent collection in public spaces, beginning with schools.
Three schools in Rome are hosting three works from the museum’s permanent collection, thus becoming generators of creativity, beauty and meaning: IISS Virginia Woolf, IC “Largo Castelseprio” and IISS cine-tv “Roberto Rossellini”.
PProfessional museum staff, educators, teachers and interns from La Sapienza University – Teaching Museum and Territorial Education and the Rome Academy of Fine Art lead the students in visits and workshops through to the creation of artistic products inspired by and reinterpreting the contents of the work hosted by the school through the sensibilities of the young people involved in the project.
