What to expect

Choosing what to visit in an art-rich city like Florence isn’t so simple, especially when you have children whom you want to introduce to the beauty of art without boring them. From this awareness comes the tour Becoming a sculptor… at the Bargello Museum because there’s no more magical place to discover what sculpture is and who the great protagonists of this art are. Three-dimensional and made with different materials, sculpture engages us 360 degrees and immediately wins us over!

Starting from the materials themselves, we’ve created a kit that helps us in a journey of discovery about the sculptor’s tools of the trade, and surprises will not be lacking. 

We have some big names in store for you… Michelangelo, Donatello, Brunelleschi will suffice?

The Bargello palace itself will fascinate both adults and children: climbing its stairs and walking through its various rooms will make you feel like you’ve traveled back in time and found yourself inside a real castle.
