Work began on Tuesday, April 4th at Casa Matha, with the welcome speech by Mrs. Ouidad Bakkali, Deputy Mayor of the City of Ravenna, in charge of Education and Child Support, followed the speeches of Valentino Montanari, President of SISAM, International School for the Study of Mosaic and Fresco Arts, Donatella Mazza, former head of the City of Ravenna, Aline Rutily of the Landscape and Heritage Association in Saint-Germain-en-Laye France, Mara Forlin, teacher at the Lugo Provincial Adult Education Center (CPIA) and Milla Lacchini, CPIA school leader. In the second part of the morning, the inauguration of the didactic exhibition organized by the Guido Novello College took place. The school orchestra welcomed the delegation with the Marseillaise and the song "Volare", which were highly applauded. This exhibition was inaugurated in the presence of the headmaster of the College, Mr. Gennaro Zinno, Professor Manuela Giacomin, the principal of the primary school of Lugo, Daniela Geminiani and the two teachers Paola Corbolante and Gabriella Galli. It presents the mosaic work and the frescoes made by the pupils of the 2nd year of the "Gardenghi-Codazzi" primary school of Lugo, by the students of the CPIA, by the 2nd year students of the "Guido Novello" College, as well as by the teachers who attended the SISAM seminar. During the thematic workshops the learners carried out theoretical and practical activities related to graphic arts and painting, creating mosaics and frescoes inspired by the historical and modern works present in the city. This expressive and engaging method of learning has developed skills in mathematics, geometry, history and art history. These educational itineraries were based around the heritage of the city, from the mosaics of the basilicas to the frescoes of Santa Chiara in the National Museum of Ravenna. These pedagogical approaches were presented to the participants as themes of reflection for the innovation of teaching activities and the dissemination of the project. Thanks to this European project, Ravenna, the ancient city whose eight monuments are recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, opens up new possibilities for pedagogy towards different levels of education and different groups of adults, involved in all kinds of project initiatives.
