Museum of the Habits and Customs of the People of Trentino
The voice of tales and legends
“The Barbatàngheri is coming!” was the voice echoing in town when the peddler selling letter-paper, images and knickknacks told his tales and legends to children, in exchange for a home-cooked meal or a bed.
Featured main characters were often frightful wild men, mischievous “salvanei” (leprechauns) and mysterious “anguane” (water fairies). These mythical creatures are the thread line linking the activities organized by the Museum through objects, videos and workshops.
MUSE – Science Museum
Digging into the past to understand the present
The world we live in in results from an age-old story, which started billions of years ago. Paleontologists examine organisms of the past and of the habitats they used to live in through the study of fossils. Two workshops will allow us to discover the paleontologist’s job through the analysis of bivalves, trilobites, ammonites and dinosaurs’ footprints!
WWF Trentino Alto Adige
BEWARE THE WOLF
Time of wolves, time of men and of no-easy coexistence.
The symbol of courage, of filial protection, has spontaneously come back, after missing for decades. So now what are we going to do? Are we ready to welcome him back, or will the deep-seated fear towards the perfect predator make us banish him from our lands? First of all let’s know him through a game that will tell us more about him, and then let’s look him carefully in his deep eyes while letting him look back into ours.
