Free Flowing. Experiencing Art with Parkinson’s

Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi with Dance Well

Free Flowing is the new inclusion scheme that Palazzo Strozzi has devised in conjunction with Dance Well– movement and research for Parkinson’s. The scheme got under way in the autumn of 2018 thanks to interaction with the experience built up by the Centro Parkinson di Villa Margherita (Kos Care) in Vicenza and by the city of Bassano del Grappa. Following an initial experimental phase, the scheme has now become part and parcel of the Education Department’s programme.
In the course of the Verrocchio, Master of Leonardo exhibition, a series of encounters will allow participants to interact with the masterpieces of the Renaissance through the expression of their bodies. Every Thursday, during exhibition opening hours, a group of approximately ten people will be invited to experiment with different ways of interacting with the exhibition spaces and with the works on display in the rooms using the language of words, movement and dance. Thus the paintings and sculptures of Verrocchio and his workshop will provide the starting point for a physical and emotional visit in the course of which people
will be encouraged to observe, to feel and to listen to one another and to themselves.

The initiative hasbeen made possible and has been developed in dialogue with the Fresco Parkinson Institute, a leading international facility for research and care in relation to Parkison’s and mobility-related issues.
