Visiting the museum with Poldo

Poldo, the little ghost, was born as the narrating voice of the audio guides that have been accompanying young visitors to discover the Museum since 2005. He is a good little spirit who inhabits the rooms of what had once been the apartment of Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli.
Visita il museo con Poldo

In the imaginary dimension, together with Poldo, children have privileged access to an extraordinary palace and, following the thread of a story, learn about the paintings and works of a great museum. Thus, with imagination inside a story, objects become memories and emotions.
La fiaba di Poldo is a text by Maria Teresa Balboni Brizza, illustrated by Silvia Gherra and printed by Johan & Levi editore and Museo Poldi Pezzoli. The fairy tale was animated by PROPP and translated into LIS in collaboration with Ente Nazionale Sordi.
