the "Park of The Small", located on the east side of the two great temples "Basilica" and "Neptune", consists of 10 structures that reproduce some of the most famous games of logic and strategy in the antiquity, but also some of the construction machines that are used for the construction of the three doric temples of Paestum: not missing the screw for hydraulic Archimedes. The preparation is placed in the path of the visit of the archaeological site, and is accompanied by explanatory panels and benches where parents can relax in the presence of ancient monuments with a watchful eye to their children playing, discovering some aspects of the history and archaeology of the ancient.
"The museum as a public institution, was founded in the Nineteenth century to an audience of adults educated," explains the director, Gabriel Zuchtriegel - Today, however, we want to offer an experience that is culturally enriching for everyone, so we strive to make the site more accessible for children, but also for people with disabilities. The game involves all the senses and is a tool not to be underestimated for the transmission of knowledge: it is a stimulus for the creativity of small and large. The past can teach us many things, also for the future, for example in relation to environmental sustainability".
