Project by:
Claudia Pazzini, curator of the art collections of Palazzo Sorbello GRIMM TWINS, Barbara Lachi and Ayumi Makita

The path tells the change of an era through games and toys, from "handcrafted" objects, almost unique pieces initially dedicated to children belonging to the wealthiest classes, up to games and toys built in less precious and accessible materials to a larger circle.

Tin objects, theaters and first prints of illustrated books, passing through "wonder machines" such as magic lanterns, real devices similar to the concept of pre-cinema.

The Grimm Twins, atypical “anthropologists”, called upon to create their own site specific art intervention, perform a sewing job, combining the objects made available, seeking in each of them the affection that bound them to the original owner. An intimate and familiar narration, made up of graphic interventions, artist's books, shadow games and illustrations that "stage" not only the three brothers but also two literary children Alice and Pinocchio, protagonists of two books that all children of yesterday and today have read.
