GAMeC for Schools
In these school years, so different from previous ones, we have set ourselves the goal of becoming a place of lifelong learning. Many paths are available and many solutions are proposed to let creativity work while paying scrupulous attention to health regulations.
Topics and ways of working are always designed to bring to life reflections, creative practices and insights that relate to the curricular path, in the utmost safety.
The Educators who bring our programs to schools are trained by the museum, not only on the arts front, but also on the relational and pedagogical front. Some of them possess specific skills on frailty and hardship to conduct activities involving classes and students with special needs.

The “Pathways for Transversal Skills and Orientation” (formerly Alternanza scuola-lavoro), from time to time tailor-made by tutors and teachers according to the specific preparation and interests of the different courses of study, are intended for entire class groups, involved in the development of projects that take shape from concrete cases and real museum needs. The intent is to involve girls and boys in a practical ideation and implementation activity that has a specific goal, engaging them in the use of their own knowledge and skills and stimulating them to get involved in a real personal and professional challenge, which succeeds at the same time in making them aware of the importance of respecting and enhancement of cultural heritage, the museum institution and being active participants in the life of the City.
In recent years, work has been done with Secondary School students on the creation of 3D reproductions of works in the collections that have become valuable aids to the visit for blind people; ad hoc training has been structured to enable children to accompany groups of friends, bringing closer to the museum segments of the public that are difficult to involve with traditional visiting initiatives. Some students have tried their hand at translating texts presenting the museum’s activities or its collections; other youngsters, on the other hand, have measured themselves against the need to design functional spaces to welcome mothers with children or to make clothes inspired by the works on display, to be used during specific tours and activities with children and adults.
Schools involved: Liceo Scientifico “F. Lussana” of Bergamo, Scuola d’Arte Applicata “A. Fantoni” of Bergamo, ABF of Bergamo – fashion sector, Liceo Artistico “U. Boccioni” of Milan, AFP “Patronato S. Vincenzo” of Bergamo, Liceo Linguistico “G. Falcone” of Bergamo, ITCTS “Vittorio Emanuele II” of Bergamo.
We cherish the work of those who represent the soul of the school: teachers and educators, from kindergartens to secondary schools.
Our point of honor is the investment in training and support in approaching, understanding and deepening the visual arts.
In this area our offerings are varied and highly differentiated. We offer courses to teachers that provide specific preparation on crucial topics in contemporary art; at major exhibitions we hold precognitive visits to explore the works and our proposals.
At the request of individual schools, groups of teachers or school plexuses we are available to create tailor-made operational workshops related to specific themes, with a view to “training the trainers” and making teachers the main mediators of the dialogue between children, young people and the museum.
We have also activated the GAMeC PASS: an accreditation procedure for teachers of schools of all levels that allows, upon presentation of an identity document, unlimited free access to the exhibitions set up in GAMeC.
As a reminder, we can issue, upon request, a certificate of attendance valid for training purposes to teachers accompanying classes to exhibitions or participating in our initiatives.
For information on these proposals and the GAMeC PASS. Contact us by writing to
