Didaktika is a project that complements every exhibition with special educational areas and activities, offering tools and resources to help viewers understand and appreciate the art on display.
In this educational space, you can find out more about Swiss sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti (b. 1901, Borgonovo, Switzerland; d. 1966 Chur, Switzerland) and explore the two places where the artist worked: his father‘s large, bright studio in Stampa, the village in Val Bregaglia where he spent his childhood, and the small, dark studio on the Rue Hippolyte-Maindron in Paris, which he occupied for nearly 40 years, starting in 1926.
