Free service provided during the hours of the workshops reserved for children from 3 years old, with entertainment, games, dancing and various activities. Reservations must be made at the moment of booking.

Music workshop for children:
Brigata Corsara and Marco Volpatto will propose a musical workshop exclusively dedicated to children. During the workshop children will work alternating moments with individual instrumental groups (flute, violin, guitar, keyboard owned by individual participants and percussion provided by teachers) to moments of orchestral ensemble.
Workshops will be in the morning from 10.30 to 12.30.
On Sunday there will be a public execution.
The workshop will be free for participants and will also welcome any last minute members. But we urge those concerned to register as soon as possible in order to send the scores adapted for each component giving the opportunity to study their own part in these months of waiting.
In order to facilitate the organization of the workshops please send to the laboratory coordinator Marco Volpatto ( the following data: name and surname, age, instrument and degree of experience, the day of arrival and starting.

Children’s “nap” area. A closed structure will be available where mothers and dads can bring their children for naps. Surveillance in this area will not be provided by the organization, therefore parents have to organize surveillance turns by themselves.
