Technotown – Techno-scientific toy library

Inside Villa Torlonia is Technotown, a space dedicated to new technology and designed for the entire family with children and teenagers (from 4 years and older) that is the right combination of nature and technology.

There are new rooms with new experiences where young guests will learn to interact with sophisticated technology through highly educational games and experiences that will give them the chance to use the ‘media’ in a fun and creative way.

The centre is situated in Villino Medioevale with its characteristic early 20th century architecture. It is unique of its type and was set up in November 2006 thanks to the efforts of the Department of Family and Children’s Policies and the restoration work achieved by the Department of Cultural Policies and Cultural Heritage Office, and the Monumental Buildings Directorate with the support of the Ministry of the Environment.

The activities are led by professional experts in scientific animation who accompany each class group to discover the educational course chosen, adapting the language to the target age group.
