Postcards from the border

A tour of the exhibition designed to look closely at Hugo Pratt’s art, especially the settings for his fantastic stories. The guide will take the schoolchildren along a route leading to territories like the former African colonies, Venice and South America. In the workshop each pupil will be given a blank postcard without a picture. The operator will explain how to paint watercolours, an art form much loved by Hugo Pratt. The pupils can then create a landscape on their personal postcards using water colours and taking inspiration from the places visited by Corto Maltese.
