Think like Leonardo!



Think like Leonardo!

Through special activities and games, authors Sonia Scalco and Carlo Carzan will guide children (6+) into Leonardo Da Vinci’s world. This playful and interactive learning workshop presented by “Così X Gioco” from Palermo, will investigate the mind of the brilliant Florentine genius, Leonardo Da Vinci, by analyzing his exceptional skills and learning techniques, as well as his mistakes and failures. The presentation consists of a series of images, games and narrations in Italian that aim to make children and teenagers interested in the world around them.

Carlo Carzan is a writer and a “ludomastro” from Palermo. His job consists of training teachers and recreational instructors, as well as organizing workshops for children and promoting reading. He won the LudoAward with ‘Il calcio con le dita’ (Editoriale Scienza) and the Andersen Prize for the promotion of reading with the association Così per Gioco. Some of his latest books from the series Genius include Think Like Leonardo, Think Like Sherlock Holmes and Think Like Einstein, published by Editoriale Scienza Allenamente Junior.

Sonia Scalco is a children’s entertainer and expert on artistic activities. She coordinates activities at Biblioludoteca Le Terre del Gioco (a place of growth and education for children from 6 to 12). She organizes creative workshops and recreational and museum itineraries, which take place through playful tours in museums and schools that combine books and narration with workshops. Together with Carlo Carzan, she created Così per Gioco, the first play area for children in Palermo. They won the Andersen Prize in 2009 for their work and promotion of literacy among all age groups.
