Leonardo da Vinci’s Fables

Carano4Children, La Nuova Compagnia di Prosa, REMUTO and Teatro Reims

With the patronage of the European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, of the Italian Permanent Representation to the EU and of Regione Toscana, the Carano4Children foundation honours 500 years since Leonardo da Vinci’s death, with the “Leonardo4Children” initiative. The initiative aims at stimulating the creative, artistic and scientific skills of children across Europe, based on the example of Leonardo da Vinci and his Fables, via European competitions for children and young people. The final beneficiaries of the initiative are children in need (e.g. orphans or refugees) via art and science education. In this event, two narrators from the La Nuova Compagnia di Prosa will read a series of Fables by Leonardo da Vinci, with musical accompaniments by REMUTO.

The ambition is to raise awareness through the key themes of the Fables on the following: ethical behaviours, universal values and principles, preservation of natural resources such as water, the importance of knowledge and education as well as the study of natural phenomena.
