Workshops

Our workshops offer children and young adults the opportunity to discover and actively engage with the content of the exhibitions: from the history of Cinecittà displayed in the set designs, costumes and characters that made the Studios famous to the interactive rooms in Backstage which demonstrate how a film is made, the professional roles in moviemaking and the industry. Each visit includes an exhibition tour that presents the chosen theme to the students followed by a workshop that delves deeply into content.
Each visit is adapted to suit the age of the participants.

Professions in film

An interactive, didactic tour of Cinecittà and a workshop where participants experiment with inventing and storyboarding a story, creating a character and their costumes, and designing a setting with all its furnishings. The workshop activity offers the opportunity to create unique digital storytelling about the masters of cinema as a permanent souvenir of the experience.
