Rivoluzioni di idee: pratiche e metodologie per una didattica attiva
Training for hearing and deaf teachers, educators and museum workers
curated by Senza Titolo
A training session at MACRO with Elena Stradiotto, head of educational projects at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, and the trainers of “Senza Titolo” dedicated to the experimentation of museum didactics practices and methodologies. Participants will experience an “altered” visit: through a series of exercises will be invited to focus on the way they normally observe the works, moving around the exhibition space, and then question it, overturning their point of view and discovering new and unusual ways of interacting with the exhibition and its contents. The “altered” visit is a modality of fruition of the works and habitation of the exhibition space born from the research of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s art cultural mediation staff starting from a rereading of the workbook published by Manifesta.
The training session will be translated into LIS by an art historian specialised in Italian Sign Language with the aim of offering an ever-widening public opportunities to learn about and access the cultural heritage of the city of Rome.

DEPARTMENT FOR PREVENTIVE EDUCATION – Educational activities at the Museum for Preventive Imagination are conceived as an additional instrument to guide you through the activities of the museum. Through the creation of physical and digital content, MACRO’s educational programme is designed along multiple levels of complexity to make the museum accessible to different audiences.
To avoid reducing the museum to mere hardware, MACRO aims to develop activities within and beyond its physical spaces. To reach this goal, the Department for Preventive Education has been conceived as a software, developing an educational programme geared towards investigation and training in the fields of art and contemporary culture. The programme offers activities for schools and academic institutions, adults, kids and families, through workshops, exhibition tours and talks.
A space and an educational programme will be dedicated to the public involved in dialogue with the themes and languages of the exhibition programme through a non-hierarchical didactic approach that emphasises on the process.
Talks and workshops are held by cultural associations and educational projects in order to encourage an accessible, creative and multidisciplinary experience of art, in addition to the direct involvement of artists and the museum’s staff.
