15th of April World Art Day

On the anniversary of the birth of the great Genius and Master Leonardo Da Vinci, April 15th, on the World Day of Art, our school emphasized the importance of the rediscovery of Art and Beauty as a means of human and social rebirth, starting to make some videos and multimedia products on Italian and Sicilian artists, in particular.
In 2017 some classes of our school, inspired by a blog “Didatticarte”, created a tableau vivant of the “Flagellation” by Piero della Francesca, a painting that revisits the masterpiece by Antonello, the “Annunziata”, in a manga key, the revisitation of the bronze statue “David” by Donatello in a study for a tattoo and a photomontage work combining works of art and current images, a way to reread some masterpieces of art by updating them.
More space was given to the plasterer Giacomo Serpotta (that you can see on Youtube channel), to the architect Almeyda and finally to Giotto’s works . In this case the students created presentations and videos.

Travel diary of the Italian course

During the last day of the course held in Palermo, the Erasmus students, in pairs, wrote a travel diary covering, among other things, their experiences and feelings. These postcards, realized during the writing workshop, represent a way to monitor the project and understand how much the students have enjoyed the experience. The results were all positive and some students had fun adding special graphics effects to the postcards. Enjoy the reading!











Palermo 15th -21st of March: photo gallery and video

These are some photos that are only a part of a school exhibition made the last day of the mobility.

The school was opened to everybody and parents came to visit the exhibition made by our students during the workshops and the visit of the city.
















Italian memories of Palermo course from 15 to 21 March: travel diary, fractals creative lab, restoration lesson, seppo game

The course held in Palermo from March 15th to March 21st 2018 met the general objectives and was a stimulating experience for our school.

Students realized the close relationship between Geometry, Chemistry, Architecture and Restoration, they treated the fractals in the computer lab by means of an informatics application and then they looked at them on the plans of the Palatine Chapel and in the apses of the Cathedral of Monreale.

Later they made fractal models that were exhibited in the final exhibition. The students also studied the conic sections found in many artistic buildings such as theaters and churches and understood how the sound spreads better through these sections.

In the Academy of Fine Arts, in the Diocesan Museum and in the Oratory of S. Salvatore, the students met experts in restoration and in some cases they had the opportunity to carry out small activities of true restoration.

They also visited Santa Caterina where there is a restoration workshop and the Teatro Massimo which has a circular construction.

During the second TPM meeting teachers showed the platforms created, organized the second LTT in Iceland and shared the results.

We can say that the atmosphere among the teachers and between the students and the teachers was cheerful and fruitful and we will never forget this experience.


When you start studying mathematics you often approach difficult and boring concepts, but is it true?

We think it is a matter of perspective, but we studied fractals and conic sections to highlight the fascinating aspects of science. A new revolutionary idea of ​​geometry explains the complexity of nature.

The fractal is a geometric shape characterized by the repetition of the same model on an ever smaller scale. A mountain, a coral, a plant are made up of smaller parts of similar shapes repeated endless times.

It is therefore a way to grasp the concept of infinity in nature, which has inspired literature, art and science. Fractal geometry is able to describe complex objects that are more common in nature than triangles or cubes. The whole universe is a large fractal, the same universe expressed by Heraclitus, that is chaos in order.

Let’s see how our students studied fractals and conic sections during the first day of mobility in Palermo

Student’s Italian works before the first LTT: fractal art, Conic Section, golden ratio, Politeama theatre, Palatin Chapel

Our students are ready to do the guides around Palermo.

The meeting program is busy and the students studied fractals, conic sections and the main features of our monuments.

In order to create the fractal art we will use this application:


These are their works about the Palatin Chapel, the Conic Section and the golden ratio.

Italian Seppo and Kahoot games

Seppo application, that we get to discover thanks to the SMART project, is certainly a fun way to let our students discover their city and artistic places. Thanks to this application, teachers organize a sort of treasure hunts within the cities or within a place of interest. In our case, what can be better than to start organizing a game inside our Opera theater?  Furthermore Kahoot game is ready too!

We needed to test how it would take place during our next first student mobility on March.

This is a funny way to learn!
