THE PROJECT – GIVING YOUTH A VOICE
The Association Sole Luna – Un ponte tra le culture, which has always cared the young people, school and talents, starts this year two pilot projects in the area of Treviso, whose aim is to enhance the study, research and professionalism through the paths of excellence. The schools that will interact with the Festival are: the Giorgi Fermi Institute and the Art School of Treviso with two projects very different from each other, but united by the intention of stimulating the energies of the youth in the specific realization of their projects. These early examples of interaction of an international cultural event with the school are just the beginning of a process of involvement of the younger generations. An incubator that has to germinate the seed of curiosity for knowledge and art, and which must also encourage young people to express new ideas and in daring to test their skills.
