Organized in collaboration with ASL 11 Tuscany in Empoli and the Lions Club of San Miniato, the project will reach over 900 first year middle school students in our district.
The project will take place over a three year period and the first two schools to participate will be the G. Galilei Comprehensive Institute of Montopoli and the Buonarroti Comprehensive Institute in Ponte a Egola. This project began in the school year 2016/2017.
The schools that will participate the following year will be the “Montanelli Petrarca” Comprehensive Institute of Fucecchio and the “F. Sacchetti” of San Miniato. Those that will participate in the last year of the program will be the Comprehensive Institutes “Cristiano Banfi” of Santa Croce sull’Arno and the “Leonardo Da Vinci” of Castelfranco di Sotto.
Three two-hour classes will be led by professionals from the Comunicarea multi-disciplinary center of Santa Croce sull’Arno, who will be tasked with helping the students get close to and appreciate the artists and artwork of our territory, but most importantly, help them explore their own personal hidden capabilities and artistic talents.
It is an intense project in which art, colors, emotions, freedom of expression, respect for your neighbor, are only a few of the main components.
