Art exhibitions are a perfect setting in which to take one’s measure of history and to explore the present, a space in which to enjoy an engaging aesthetic experience and a potentially stimulating venue for learning a foreign language.
Speak Loud / Parla Forte is a scheme devised for anyone studying Italian who wishes to test their skills in absolute freedom in the environment of an art exhibition, both learning new words and revisiting language skills acquired in the classroom in the course of a visit to Palazzo Strozzi.
The experience is split into two phases: the introductory part focuses on creating the ideal setting for debating and sharing the words on which we will be working in the exhibition, while the second part unfolds before a selection of artworks in the Reaching for the Stars exhibition from which we take our cue to discuss our tastes in art, our feelings about exhibitions and museums and our daily experiences in general, using both new and old words.
The activity is tailored to cater for each group’s language level. On booking, teachers are sent preparatory material for use in the classroom ahead of the experience in Palazzo Strozzi.
Cost and duration
The activity costs € 52.
Admission free for accompanying teachers.
The activity lasts 90 minutes.
The maximum number of participants for each group is 10 people.
Classes with a larger number of students are divided into two groups in order to allow everyone to take part and to get the most out of the experience, in which case the cost of the activity doubles.
Reservations are required.
The cost of the activity does not include either the price of admission to the exhibition (€ 5) or the advance booking fee (€ 1 per person).
