There will also be a photographic exhibition from Kate Barry, portraying 25 shots of French actors and actresses. See the website for more details.

 

 

ACTIVITIES/CHILDREN/ Science for all!

November 2. Galileo Museum, Florence

http://theflr.net/5bow3o

 

The Galileo Museum offers 90-minute educational activities (in Italian), which are a great way for both adults and children (6 years and older) to visit the museum, along with a guide, to help them better understand both the functions and historical importance behind scientific developments. On November 2, take part in a workshop about Galileo’s scientific instruments at 3pm, followed by a show of images created in a camera obscura to explore light and lenses. To reserve, email weekend@museogalileo.it or call 055/265311

 

 

EXHIBITION/PAINTING/ The Spectrum of Light

Until November 30. Galleria Open Art, viale Repubblica 24 and Museo di Pittura e Murale, piazza S.Domenico, Prato

www.openart.it

www.diocesiprato.it

 

Paul Jenkins has made a name for himself as one of the major figures in twentieth century art. In Jenkins’s work, colour takes centre stage, taking on a power which initially seemed non-existent. The 70 works on canvas and paper, which complete this exhibition, are the fruits of very precise and accurate work from the artist and portray his intense style of painting. His works will be exhibited in two locations in Prato, the Galleria Open Art and the Museum of painting and murals.

 

 

HALLOWEEN/ Terrifying Tuscany

October 30/31. Florence and Borgo a Mozzano, Lucca
