Schools and groups

Why bring school children to the exhibition?

Japanese monsters entered our television culture starting from the 1950s with , bringing with them exotic cultures, customs, and traditions. Series, films, and generations may change but Japanese monsters are always there to enchant the younger audience, in a schedule that has lasted for decades, bringing people together and becoming a topic for intergenerational dialogue. The exhibition is structured around a narrative path that aims to compare our educational approach to the storytelling of fairy tales and legends with the Japanese one.

The exhibition visit

The visit to the exhibition can become a cue for an analysis of narrative purpose; the study of the types of scripts and their structures from ancient Greek to modern Japanese; a basis for a choral work starting from the monsters the students see now on TV, comparing them to those of the teachers’ generation until tracing their origins culture.

Why visit the Yōkai exhibition

From June 13 to November 3, 2024 in the wonderful exhibition spaces of the Museo degli Innocenti in Florence you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a unique experience, admiring ancient Japanese works of art and historical traditional objects in which the evocative power of these legendary creatures lives on.

From the mischievous kappa to the fearsome tengu, from the sensual kitsune to the giant mountain-like oni, you will discover their history, their importance in popular culture, and the distinctive characteristics that make them so fascinating. A great opportunity to get in touch with an imagery deeply rooted in Japanese culture and through it explore its most intimate folds, in which are hidden feelings, anxieties, fears and desires that are alive, real and material.
