education department

The Education Department of the Fondazione Merz is at the service of schools and conceives teaching programmes for learning about images and for studying visual codes, in particular encouraging knowledge of the work of Mario Merz and of contemporary art. Structured around the typology of the end-user, the teaching activities are interdisciplinary in nature, in order to meet all the requirements of the school programmes, and aim to reinforce students’ interpretative skills of visual codes as well as a space for reflection on the forms of art and for individual expression. Thus, the guided visit encourages a critical reading and a decodification of the work of art, while activities in the laboratory stimulate the experience and reflection on the educational and training values and on the emotional stimulus that the act of creation involves.
