This room invites you to observe Georgios Iakovidis' painting Chidren's Concert (1900) with a careful eye on musical instruments. In particular, a video tutorial shows how to build musical instruments using recycled materials. Thus we want to focus attention also on the potential of simple and everyday objects through a playful approach, stimulating creativity with a view to environmental sustainability. Furthermore, a reflection on musical expressive forms is offered with reference to their impact on the emotional dimension.
