Art with Mati and Dada

A series inspired by the playful learning model, used in international museums to bring children closer to the world of art.

Mati is a cheerful seven-year-old girl with a great passion for creativity: curious and enterprising, she is always ready to go on an adventure through time and space to discover a new artist. His funny friend Dada always wears the “Quadrimetro”, a magic belt that allows him to go through time and meet the great masters of the past.

In each episode Mati and Dada guide the children into the world of art, right inside the ateliers of the great masters where there is always a mystery to solve. Our heroes will help Mantegna, Picasso, Bruegel, Toulouse-Lautrec and other great artists who in return will reveal secrets and techniques used to make their masterpieces.

Mati and Dada are the testimonials of the National Family Day at the Museum.
