The Elf laboratory at Castello Sforzesco

Games, photos and free workshops for everyone

From
To
Castello Sforzesco
Piazza Castello

This Christmas the Elves have found a special home in Milano: the Sforza Castle! In the larger courtyard, they built their houses to meet the children in the light of the Christmas tree decorated for the occasion.

Entering their small village is like taking a journey back in time. We start from the wooden games of the grandparents of the Bottega dei Giochi: an animation for the whole family through games of the folk tradition, to entertain children and adults together. The games are all designed and built by hand, mostly one-of-a-kind, made of wood and embellished with sophisticated details.

 

We then move on to the Foto con gli Elfi house: here you can create a Christmas card with the setting you prefer and write the letter with the gifts you would like.

Last stop at the Baita delle Favole, where you can take part in workshops dedicated to manual skill and imagination.

 

The Bottega dei GIochi and the Foto con gli Elfi are open from December 16th to 30th from 10:00 to 18:30.

 

The complete programme of activities at the Baita delle favole is: 

DECEMBER 21: CREATE YOUR DECORATION
