Adam and Eve project

Throughout the year 2008, a training and creation course was developed at CANGO, aimed at a group of children aged 7 and 8. The project was directed by Virgilio Sieni and is part of the programme of the Accademia sull’arte del gesto, conceived and directed by the choreographer as a novel context for the transmission of artistic practices and creation.

Through regular meetings on a weekly basis, with moments for intensification, the children went on a journey to discover the body, movement and the idioms of contemporary art: at the same time, they worked with a series of iconographic references on the theme of Adam and Eve, from a few masterpieces in the Florence area, such as those of Masolino, Masaccio and Donatello, going as far as the bas-reliefs of Wiligelmo in Modena.
