Over the past few months, Oltre le Parole has carried out numerous activities dedicated especially to young students in schools of all levels, with the aim of developing socialisation and artistic expression activities to challenge and overcome the difficult period experienced by young people following the pandemic event.
First of all, the Erasmus Plus project ‘The face behind the mask’, in which our association is involved together with the Italian ‘Rebike alter-mobility’, some primary schools in Rome and other partners from Spain and Wales. A series of activities carried out within schools on the theme of post-pandemic resocialisation, thanks to the play of theatre and aggregative and artistic techniques. The project will last another year and will involve, in addition to the students, primary school teachers and theatre professionals who will exchange their respective practices of aggregation and expressiveness in favor of the school. After the meeting in Spain last May, the next appointment will be in Wales.
In addition to the Italian capital of Rome, our activities have also moved to the north and south of Italy. In the province of Trento, near the Dolomites, with the ‘School-not-School’ project dedicated to young people at risk of dropping out of school. In the provinces of Catania and Enna, near the volcano Mount Etna, with the project ‘In-dipendenti: la mia vita non è un gioco’ (‘In-dependent: my life is not a game’), whose aim was to draw attention to addiction, particularly gambling.
