Postcards from the Vittoriano

Children and Families at VIVE
- Visit and workshop for children
- Sunday 22 October, 4 p.m.

The Vittoriano was designed by the architect Giuseppe Sacconi in honour of the first king of Italy, Victor Emmanuel II, in 1882-1883. The work was prolonged until the 1930s. Considered the supreme symbol of Italy united and independent, the Vittoriano soon became a pivotal place in the nation's collective imagination. Young and old are invited to discover its events, architecture and art with an animated narrative tailor-made for them. Visitors set off on a journey through time, walk up flights of steps and panoramic terraces, admiring the city from above thanks to the breath-taking view, and finally reinvent the places explored by creating imaginative and colourful illustrated postcards.

WHEN: Sunday, October 22
TIME: 4 p.m.
