  • The idea is to contribute to knowing the history of Rome, the Environment and the Culture of that age in Italy. Participants will bring with them only documents and a short presentation with topics of their own organization. This is due to share experiences among participants and comparing methodologies and practices. Host organizations will share materials through one online platform open to actual participants and previous project participants in a dedicated social network. Objectives Aim is to know more about the world of Ancient Romans until the Renaissance period by visiting the major museums in Rome (Galleria Borghese or Musei Capitolini). the idea is to know more through practice and outdoor activities, experiences and “reflection through action”. Every participant will learn about history and the environment by visiting dedicated places (Palatino or Foro Romano) in a kind of outdoor education, looking at Rome today as it was in the past and during the Imperial Age.

The training program demands full participation from participants. As the main method we would let to learn through cooperative work, various outdoor activities, biking, discussions on-site and making movies about the common experience. Lectures will be short and they will take place between outdoor activities. A key objective is: learning by doing and by visiting. All participants should be able to discuss and present simple activities in the English language or their thinking inside a workgroup.

Host organization encourages the exchange of email between learners and teachers, the exchange of material created by themselves or made by teachers, and the use of the website (platform) created by the host organization. We encourage the addiction to presentations as new materials or videos or other learning tools.
