5 places reserved for myMAXXI cardholders and their children

A reading event revolving around Maria Lai’s “sewn fables”, dedicated to families.

Who was Maria Lai? What is a “sewn fable”? What role did sewing play in the artist’s work? On the occasion of the first of two events dedicated to fables called “Holding the sun by the hand”, an expert educator will go through the pages of the Sardinian artist’s “sewn book” in order to guide us on a journey from darkness to light, namely the beginning and the end of everything.

The activity is free upon purchase of a reduced-price entry ticket for an accompanying adult. Booking required: call +393386419518 – Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm – or write an email to edumaxxi@fondazionemaxxi.it  – by 1:00 pm of the Friday prior to the event.
