A modern mother, who "magically" manages to divide herself between work, home, family and children. A woman aware that the happiness of her whole world depends on her serenity... active, sensitive, caring, cheerful... in short, a "little parsley". Prezzemolo, which with qualified staff entertains children up to 12 years of age, offers children the opportunity to have fun learning to create something with their own hands and to express themselves with the various daily workshops: art, philosophy, anatomy, fitness and much more. The workshops will be held not only inside the structure but especially outdoors in our parks and gardens in the historic center.
