Our Activities

Libriamoci 2018

Also this year the primary school and kindergarten attended Libriamoci. Reading days in schools, the campaign of the Center for books and reading born from an agreement between the Ministry of Education, University and Research and the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities.

Leonardo da Vinci, our special guest, was with us from October the 22nd to 24th, showing us his works and how extraordinary he was.  Our parents joined us and our special reader was the Italian Consul of Izmir, Dr. Luigi Iannuzzi, who read us some really interesting subjects and we built together a small parachute. It has been an unforgettable experience.

On the occasion of the 18th edition of the Italian Language Week in the World we organized an event for making our families more familiar with the Italian language. The Italian Consul of İzmir, Dr. Luigi Iannuzzi, and the President of the COM.IT.ES of Izmir Maria Elisa Sponza were with us. We had the chance to present ItaliAmo, an application for learning Italian, while the children enjoyed some interactive games.

İzmir Fransız Kültür Merkezi – 1001 NIGHTS from Julien Salaud

On the occasion of the “1001 nights” exhibition at the Arkas Sanat Merkezi, the artist Julien Salaud installed his art at the İzmir Fransız Kültür Merkezi based on the same theme. He composed the human figures with several kilometers of wire and thousands of nails. Everything was shining in the dark room. We were amazed!

Eat a little of everything... this is the secret

Eating healthy is important for living well! For this reason, we went shopping with our teachers, who taught us to identify the products on the shelves, to check the expiry date and to notice the discount.

Il Maggio dei Libri 2018

We never get tired of reading! We decided to join the Italian National Campaign for improving reading as an element of personal and collective growth. “Il Maggio dei Libri” is an initiative promoted by MiBACT. We read our book in a beautiful atmosphere outside the school at Kültür Park with Maria Elisa Sponza, President of Smirne Com.it.es.

Izmir Opera House - "Magic World"

The İzmir Opera House has fascinated us with its architecture. We were immersed in polyphonic music, into the colors and dance. It seemed to be in a fairy tale.

Landscapes of water from the Arkas collection

We admired and analysed the sea in different  paintings. It’s interesting noticing how the artists’ talent, using different colours and techniques can create many interpretations of water. We also enjoyed producing our own works with different artistic techniques.

Arkas Maritime History Center

We discovered many things, such as; different flags are used to communicate on board and that colors and symbols are very important.

It was interesting to learn, how different parts of the ship are named and what to do in case of danger. It was really exciting to wear a real life jacket.

The scale models of the ships were magical! They were equal to the originals but much smaller!

Arkas Art Center – Anatolian Travels

We put the Ottoman life on stage: sitting at the table like the Ottomans was very different, just as the food and objects.

Anatolia keeps its charm still now. It influences the modern world with its culture and history.
