Projects for Schools

More than 40 courses for all school ages: the choice is yours!

On beauty

The park and the museum are two big “classrooms” to explore for a hands-on informal experience: containers of stimuli and beautiful things, which our educators ply skilfully to engage students. We promise to keep you busy and if you need support before and after the visit to ensure that what we do together is a good fit for your work at school during the year, then just write to us!

Inclusion is our aim

All our activities can be adapted and customized to meet special needs. Let us know your needs in advance and we will schedule a telephone interview with the educator accompanying your class: together we can organize the day at Villa Carlotta so that it is truly special for everyone.

And if you want to prepare in advance ... download two handouts designed for visitors on the autism spectrum or with mental impairments. The handouts are useful for preparing your day at Villa Carlotta with your students,

If you have special requests write to us!


We will bring some of our workshops to your classroom during autumn and winter months! Below is the list of those we can “bring to school”:

  • How the vegetable machine works
  • Cell, tissue, organ
  • A stroll through the millennia
  • It takes a flower – CLIL also available
  • Art underfoot: terrazzo and mosaic floors
  • Experiment with colour – CLIL also available
  • Let’s make a fresco
  • Villa Carlotta at school: let’s explore the park and museum ... without leaving the classroom!
