Once Upon A Time... Every object has a story
When you ask questions about daily life, there’s a thousand things to tell! Every object, even those that have become so familiar that we don’t “see” them anymore, can tell exciting stories. Maestro will reveal them all the while entertaining us! Behind any pair of eyeglasses, an eraser or a bicycle, stand ten thousand years of History, anecdotes, science and design! Every object is an opportunity to visit the various fields of knowledge (History, Geography, Physics, Natural Science, Philosophy) and discover how they’ve played a role in the History of Humanity and made the world in which we live... as well as the one we’ll be living in tomorrow!
The goal is to show children that this special kind of magic is literally within their grasp! Every object around us is the fruit of a long process and has its own history full of human adventures. Finding out that there’s a thousand years of history behind a simple spoon is both surprising and fun! Making viewers look at daily life through new eyes: helping children understand their environment through objects that surround them.
By entertaining them, we want to make children feel that knowledge is a source of wonder and joy that improves their daily lives. Curiosity and wonder are the starting point of knowledge. By sharpening their interest, we hope to awaken children awareness. And who knows, we might even spark some callings!
