The MUSLI offers two distinct but complementary itineraries, dedicated respectively to the history of schools and to children’s literature.
The “School Itinerary” allows discovering schools at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th: from the courtyards for breaks to classrooms during the early ‘900s, including period games, educational methods, book-prizes and punishments, visitors are transformed into past students and become the absolute stars of the visit.
The “Book Itinerary” allows discovering children’s literature, ranging between pop-up books, precious historical editions and interactive multimedia installations: an “enchanted journey” into the past, but still looking towards the future, through the constant link between the historical heritage of children’s literature and the potential of the new multimedia solutions.
The exhibition also includes a reconstruction of the nineteenth-century printing house of the Eredi Botta, a historic presence in Palazzo Barolo.
