In these schools and places of culture, where children and other people occasionally look at these pages, send us pictures of what they find, or somehow interact with us, they have set a station that refers to the Children's Virtua Museum of Small Animals.
A "station" can be a poster on the wall, a bulletin board with photos and drawings, a desk with a screen and internet connection, a shelf with books and magazines about small animals, a totem pole made by children, or any other visible sign of collaboration with our Museum. Here we'll have the pictures and the addresses!
A list is being compiled
Paolo Beneventi, the creator of the Museum, has been working during a lot of years with thousands of children, making theatre and videos, inventing stories and writing books, using computers, just basing on the natural capacity of children of learning and doing by playing, following and developing the pedagogic attitude known in Italy from the Seventies as “animazione teatrale.”
Many other teachers and educators have been and are involved in our projects, from many parts of the world.

Warning: In some pictures and videos small animals are in the hands of kids. They were normally not hurt and were put back in their sites, but it is not correct. Only few of of them can be dangerous for humans, but in general, if they casually come on our body, we have to gently depose them elsewhere, or wait for them to fly away. As a general rule, we have to watch them closely, take pictures but NOT TO TOUCH THE INSECTS!
