The Mortai Opera

The main cultural centre of Aosta Valley offers to schools a wide range of workshops and educational activities. They can be modulated depending on school attitude and on children age.

Three permanent paths inside the majestic fortress, reachable through a walking distance and with three panoramic lifts free of charge, offering a breath-taking view of the Dora Baltea central valley. The Museum of the Alps is the heart of the cultural offer, a path made of thirty rooms to discover the alpine world that is perfect in terms of teaching. In addition to the Museum it is possible to join the path called The Children Alps, featuring a virtual ascent to the Mont Blanc, then the historic route of the Prisons and a range of photographic and art exhibitions of international aim.
Schools can also choose to join a guided tour of the Fortress in combination with permanent museums.
In Opera Mortai (picture) it has been set up a resting place and a welcome area both dedicated to schools, with a classroom for workshops, meetings and screenings.
