Educational activity in schools
Since its first steps, the Foundation has been committed to enhancing the legacy of Don Lorenzo Guetti's thought and works by spreading his legacy in the schools of the Autonomous Province of Trento.
In synergy with the Trentino Federation of Cooperation, the Foundation has made available to the Alternanza Scuola Lavoro Project a series of researchers who have retraced, together with students and teachers, the living conditions of Trentino in the mid-nineteenth century and the history of Trentino cooperation of the origins.
In order to promote graphic novels in the world of schools, the Foundation has entrusted Nicola Sordo, an appreciated popularizer and theater actor, with the task of developing an innovative and participatory educational format. In May 2019, the first experiments of the creative workshop on the history of cooperation and of Don Guetti will start in the schools of the Giudicarie Esstre. The future goal is to bring the theatrical performance to every schools throughout the province.
All for one and one for all
The awaited educational booklet "All for one ... one for all" is available in "flip book" format, published on the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the Trentino Cooperation, which tells the life and initiatives of don Lorenzo Guetti.
The book, downloadable in the attachment below, was created by the Federation in collaboration with the Ecomuseo della Judicaria.
The project was born from an idea of Iva Berasi and was written by children's writer Alessandra Sartori, accompanied by images, created by Stefano Ferragina.
The choice to publish the booklet in this innovative format will allow students and their teachers to browse it online, read it and comment on it in class, even through the IWB (interactive whiteboard), and to print, with an eye to ecology, only the strictly necessary copies.
To deepen the proposed activities aimed at primary school, the Cooperative Education and Culture Office is active at the Trentino Federation of Cooperation. Go at the web site
