Nature, history, science and science fiction for children

And you can start as a child, playing and having fun. So spring in Rome brings with it many opportunities to learn with a smile. Until April 7th, every day from 4pm to 8pm, at the Cinecittàdue shopping center in Viale Palmiro TogliattiDiscovering the human body awaits us, an engaging educational itinerary with exhibits, games and interactive animations to make our acquaintance with our body fun, as well as instructive, even for the little ones.

At the WWF Oasis of Macchiagrande in Fregene, Dinosauri in Carne ed Ossa returns, a fascinating experience for families to learn about the asteroid that caused the disappearance of the Mesozoic dinosaurs and the often negative impact that man has on nature. A small group of survivors of the great extinctions gave birth to different species of animals that dominated the Earth alternating and diversifying. The exhibition tells us their life from the time of the great extinction to the present day.

Open to families with children and anybody who might be interested, the event discusses the mechanisms that caused the adaptation or disappearance of some animal species. An opportunity to experiment with the responsible behaviors that humans should adopt to prevent a new era of climate disasters.

Rome Flowers Park opens for the first time, the park inspired by the famous Dutch Keukenhof Gardens and will house over a million tulips and where you can spend a different day with friends and families. It is a place full of flowers, scents and colors where it will also be possible to relax in two vast dining and picnic areas. Visitors can stop and have lunch under the shade of a vineyard or an olive grove, tasting traditional Italian dishes, including those coming directly from the earthquake-stricken areas of Amatrice.

For the little ones, an area has also been dedicated to games and entertainment, to make the experience even more fun and create a place to socialize with other children. In addition to the wide hill in the park, where they will be free to run and have fun while their parents relax surrounded by nature, there will also be an area for training, in which experts will be at their disposal to explain the techniques and the way to plant flower bulbs and their seasonality.
