Sono lieta di segnalare
l'incontro con gli studenti delle scuole di Tolentino (MC)
di domani 24 febbraio 2016, con Francesco Filippi,
autore di un magnifico lungometraggio di animazione
sulla violenza psicologica e fisica,
grazie alla collaborazione delle associazioni culturali
Abbiamo conosciuto questo progetto durante la presentazione
alla scorsa edizione di Bologna Book Fair ed attualmente ancora in elaborazione.
Siamo in attesa quindi dell'uscita del lavoro, che dalla anteprima bolognese,
ci ha entusiasmato per sensibilità e bellezza!
...proseguono poi i lavori e gli eventi del progetto WAI
European Paths: Rights, Movements, Society
WAI Event 2
Integration: Memory, Tales And Images In A Comparison
Between Old And New Generations Of European People
And in this manner it happened. Our little John passed through the wall exactly like Alice passed through the mirror and, jutted out from it on the other side, broadened his own arms and bowed, like a gymnast on balance beam.
(Jiří Kratochvil, Giovannino e il re, in 1989. dieci storie per attraversare i muri, Roma, Orecchio Acerbo, 2009)
The meetings are part of the activities that the ODG will realize within the Event 2, Integration: la memoria, i racconti e le immagini in un confronto tra vecchie e nuove generazioni di europei (Integration: memory, tales and images in a comparison between old and new generations of European people). Similar activities will be organized by the other partners of the WAI project: in Spain experts of the SUATEA and in Lithuania experts of the Vytautas Magnus University.
The students that will participate in these meetings attend the following high-schools: The Liceo Classico “Leopardi” (on the 23rd of February 2016), the ITC “Gentili” (on the 26th of February 2016), the Liceo Scientifico “Galileo Galilei” (on the 8th of March 2016) and the Istituto Agrario “Giuseppe Garibaldi” (on the 8th marzo 2016). The classes engaged are eigth. They will reflect on the keywords that have inspired the project together with the scholars of the ODG. These keywords are: WALLS, as real and ideological walls that cause political, cultural and habits divisions; INTEGRATION, considered as a long way in the direction of an inclusive Europe; BUILDING, considered as a developing process. The meetings will also represent the occasion to present the photographic exhibit that will be set up at Macerata in May and in which all the material gathered by the partners of the WAI project will be collected over the following months among Italy, Spain, Lithuania, Hungary, Germany and Ireland. Photographs, posters and vignettes, that will part of the exhibition, will be useful to reflect on walls of past and on physical and symbolic walls that are calling into question Europe as we know at the present time, compromising an integration process that is not fully completed.
On the 12nd of May 2016, lastly, in conjunction with the opening of the exhibit, all the students engaged in the project will attend a lectio magistralis given by Simone Attilio Bellezza, a scholar of the University of Trento. The lecture titled, Un immaginario europeo: l'Ucraina dall'URSS all'Euromajdan, (A European collective consciousness: Ukraine from the USSR to the Euromajdan) will take place in the auditorium of the ITC “Gentili” institute of Macerata from 11.00 am to 01.00 pm and is aimed at providing the students with instruments of interpretation to read current events and to comprehend how “peripheral” conflicts could have consequences on the construction process of the European Union.
Further information on the event and on the WAI project (prog. n. 562858-CITIZ-1-2015-1-IT-CITIZ-REMEM, financed within the Europe for citizens) are available on the web site dedicated to the project: http://www.wallsandintegration.com.
