MacacoTour was founded by Martina Trombini and Sara Breviglieri, both specialist in art history, with professional experience in the field of educational services for museums. The idea stems from the purpose of creating an active teaching and pedagogy that really involves the participants through an interaction that engages them not only from the intellectual point of view, but also from the sensorial one. We think that the best way to do it, it is to make it ludic. Based on this intuition, we created the concept of “cultural game”: a number of workshops, treasure hunts, and role-playing games (inside and outside the museum space) planned and developed “ad hoc” according to the local contest and based on careful historical and artistic analysis.
We are convinced that it is never too late to learn how to play again, this is why MacacoTour addresses to a differentiated public (schools, families, adults, and kids). Furthermore, we commit to the promotion of local resources and heritage cooperating with blogs and portals in different countries and offering our activities and services in various languages.
MacacoTour worked and still works with numerous institutions in the venetian area.
