Pimpa and the thaumatrope

Who is Pimpa? Let’s get to know the adventures of the character invented by Altan.

The inquisitive little dog that sets out on new adventures every day will accompany us on a fun visit to the exhibition and help us discover how animated films were born. In the workshop every participant will make their own thaumatrope, an optical toy from the Victorian period that helps us understand the “magic” of film.
