Заря человечества, Ренессанс возрождает детское восприятие. Наша ВелоНочь обращена к пытливым родителям и задумчивым детям. Флоренция для нас с вами – солнце мировой культуры от Боттичелли до Чайковского, и обратно к Микеланджело и Брунеллески. Именно Филиппо Брунеллески, которому в этом году исполнилось бы 640 лет, мы посвящаем наш большой гран тур для маленьких (от 5 лет) и взрослых.

Спикеры Велоночи - ведущие историки Флоренции Франко Кардини и Мариэлла Дзоппи, культурологи Марина Авдонина и Сергей Никитин.

На старте каждый участник получит учебные материалы, который сможет взять домой.

Просим участников захватить цветные карандаши. На снимке слева - купол работы Брунеллески, символ и первейший памятник Возрождения. Регистрация - от 11 Евро
