C.I.V.E.S. - Intercultural comparison for a socio-historical European vision
The main objectives of the "C.I.V.E.S" (Comparaison interculturelle pour une vision européenne socio-historique) are the education to intercultural dialogue and the creation of an active European conscience in the students and aims to achieve them through innovative pedagogic challenges.
The project analyses the period of the First World War under a socio-cultural perspective. Pupils carried out a research that, with Italian and French Literature as a starting point, paid particular attention to the feelings of the soldiers, expressed in the poetry of the time. Also dealt with were the language used in newspapers, satire and cartoons, as well as the language of the arts and other forms of communication.
