Field Workshops

These are only a few of the field workshops we are preparing for you!

More are on their way!

Papyrus Museum

The Papyrus Museum deals with the study, conservation and dissemination of the testimonies of the papyrus culture, which has a first-rate place in the history of civilization. The Museum carries out activities for the recovery of artefacts and documentation on the use of the papyrus plant among the various populations, as well as research activities whose results have provided a concrete contribution to the solution of many questions ranging from the origin of the papyrus to the safeguarding of papyri of the Ciane river (Siracusa).

Participants will know more about how the papyrus of Siracusa is made and more about its history!

Visit of the Pupi Theater

The Opera dei Pupi is a popular form of theatrical entertainment that developed in the early 1800s with tin marionettes as protagonists of elaborate tales of chivalric heroes, saints and infamous bandits. With this field workshop participants will see how pupis are created and used, the history of the theatre and more!

Pottery Workshop

Pottery appears in Sicily in the sixth millennium BC and it developed in all the indigenous communities of the island until the Bronze Age. From the first rough artefacts of Stentinello, near Syracuse, a long and fruitful journey leads to the beautiful painted, trichrome, flamed ceramic, which is influenced by strong Italic influences, up to the very refined, spiral meander.

With this workshop, participants will be able to try and make their own little piece of pottery!
