The lab starts with a guided tour of the precious collection of over 1,500 piggy banks of the Museum of Saving (illustrating the origins of this iconic object) and the screening of the vintage cartoon “The Ant and the Grasshopper”, through which children can reflect on the importance of saving to reach their dreams and to cope with the unexpected. In the second part of the lab, images of Italian and European coins and banknotes will be shown, and students will try to identify the possible combinations needed to purchase a series of objects. The activity will end with the screening of a short video on the introduction of the Euro.
