Il Maggio dei Libri was an event published on our fb page with several moments of reading shared with our students. For the event we had two truly exceptional reader guests: Valentina Di Leva, LIS performer (Italian Sign Language), and Martina Di Leva, actress. Accompanied by music, they interpreted selected passages taken from “History of a seagull and the cat who taught her to fly” by Luis Sepúlveda. We flew too, with our imagination!

This year, on the occasion of “Il Maggio dei Libri”, we organized an online event on the facebook page of our school. Our guest reader from Rome the author Marco Cinque has read and interpreted passages from two books focusing on the culture of the Native Americans and played an instrument – the ethnic flute. Respecting different cultures even those very different made us discover the world and ourselves. Mark Cinque taught us the Cherokee greeting! Then WA-DO…. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Italian Language Week in the World 2020
This year we celebrated the Italian language with the Supreme Poet: Dante Alighieri! But we also had a guest who had fun with us, the Consul of Italy in Izmir Valerio Giorgio. We drew a large map of Italy in the middle of our garden. We matched the cities and their symbols on the map. We had two exciting days full of creative workshops!
Space!… Our Carnival theme. Clouds, planets, rain and much more were our costumes. Pulcinella and Corallina came to school and wanted to play with us. Together with them, we played balance and coordination games, transforming ourselves into skilled transporters of delicious pizzas.

An Unusual Picasso
A French artist, Bernard Pras, installed his masterpiece at İzmir Fransız Kültür Merkezi. He reproduced Dora Maar, a famous painting by Picasso, only using recycled materials. It was really great!
