Strozzi Night is back after the success of its last two editions, hosting a programme bursting with events built around the Verrocchio, Master of Leonardo exhibition and Rede Social, the cool hammock installation in the courtyard devised by the Brasilian collective Opavivarà!
Don’t miss this evening of music, live performances and activities for youngsters and adults alike at Palazzo Strozzi.
The programme for the evening includes:
A Game of 6
(activity in the courtyard)
The Game of Six takes its cue from the relational nature of the Rede Social installation devised by the Opavivarà! collective for the courtyard in Palazzo Strozzi. In the course of the evening, adults, teens and kids will be invited to try their hand at six different tests linked to the concepts of participation and interaction, and everyone taking the tests can then enter a raffle, with six prizes due to be awarded in the course of the evening.
