We hoped to inaugurate 2021 by putting the word “end” to the Covid-19 emergency, but we still need some patience… Fortunately, thanks to the support of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, through AICODS, the MUS-E programme continues to bring art workshops of the highest level to Italian schools, giving children some moments of carefree joy at a particularly difficult time.
Just a few days ago the MUS-E workshop supported by the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy through AICODS was activated in Lido San Tommaso (in the province of Fermo).
Carla Rossetti, one of the artists involved in the project, tells us about this new experience:
“The project is called “Fabbrica dei desideri” (the wish factory) and it is inspired by Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a book the children have been reading with their teachers in class.
Imagining themselves as little Oompa Loompas (an imaginary population from Dahl’s fairy tale – editor’s note), the children try to reproduce the magical sounds of the Chocolate Factory with the tools they have on their desks (pens, rubber, ruler, pencil cases…).
The little workers, who are used to working tirelessly, decide to change their fortunes and instead of producing golden bars for others, they produce the famous golden ticket for themselves and make a wish of their own. This wish is written on a golden card and hung on the Wish Factory board so that all Oompa Loompas, like a big family and a big team, can work with their imagination to make their own wishes and those of all their fellow workers come true. A song composed for the occasion by the young pupils and a choreography created ad hoc to keep social distancing will be the ideal soundtrack to this fantastic journey through the children’s wishes”.
In the pictures you can see the young children who took part in the programme.
The MUS.E project involves the promotion of qualified art workshops involving various schools in Italy to combat marginalization and social unease in public primary schools. For this reason, MUS-E is aimed above all at schools in towns and cities and neighbourhoods where socio-economic and cultural disadvantage is highest, with the aim of combating educational poverty and giving all children the same opportunities to grow and learn.
For schools and families, the workshops are completely free of charge.
Thanks to the support of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, MUS-E is ready to stand by their side and not leave them alone at a time like this, when confidence in the future is crucial. Support MUS-E project with a donation
