A Hands-On museum in the Lagoon

In the context of the ClodiaLab museum, an interactive space dedicated to children’s learning, the main objective is to highlight the importance of biodiversity, the fishing tradition and the nature of the Venetian Lagoon.

The Venetian Lagoon is a unique and precious ecosystem that hosts a great diversity of animal and plant species. It is important to bring out this richness of biodiversity in children to develop in them an awareness of the importance of conserving the natural environment. Through practical activities, such as the observation of phenomena and animals, participation in the interactive games developed within the space has precisely this mission.

Fishing has always been an integral part of the culture and tradition of the Venetian Lagoon. It is essential to make children aware of the importance of this activity, both from a historical-cultural point of view and from the point of view of the lagoon ecosystem.

Through fishing simulations, and workshops that also include stereoscopic observation and practical activities regarding fish fauna, children can understand the link between man and the sea, appreciating the importance of sustainable fishing practices and the conservation of fish resources.

The Venetian Lagoon is a unique habitat that hosts a great variety of natural landscapes, such as salt marshes, canals, islands and beaches. It is essential to bring out the beauty and fragility of these natural environments in children, stimulating their curiosity and making them aware of the need to preserve them. In the context of the ClodiaLab museum, the mediator plays a fundamental role in accompanying children in exploring these themes. Both parents and museum guides must be prepared to provide explanations, encourage children’s active involvement and stimulate their curiosity. The mediator can facilitate children’s learning through involvement in practical activities, promoting dialogue and the exchange of ideas.
