La ludoteca di Villa Borghese dedicata a tutti i bambini dai 3 ai 10 anni
This is the ideal place to entertain children; a toy library dedicated to all children aged from 3 to 10 years old. Set in the heart of Villa Borghese in a beautiful 16th century building (originally called Palazzina dell’Alboreto dei Gelsi, it was transformed by architect Asprucci in around 1791), Casina di Raffaello offers a well-structured programme of activities ranging from educational workshops to animated readings and group discussions on new publications.
Inside is a reading area with a carefully selected collection of illustrated books, tactile books, first readings, books of fairytales and nursery rhymes and lots of fun and educational games with which to inspire curiosity and creativity in children. There is an area suitable for smaller children of 0-3 years, where the furnishings transform into soft games and reading becomes a discovery of many countries in the world, while in the company of their parents. There is also a designated outdoor area with wooden structures and games by Richter Spirlgerate, which is an environment to explore and experience alone or with friends and provides a simple, interactive way to have fun in the fresh air surrounded by the greenery of Villa Borghese.
