La Scuola in Fondazione, La Fondazione a Scuola
Through the Scuola in Fondazione, La Fondazione a Scuola (‘School in the Fondazione, the Fondazione in Schools’) project, the Fondazione Merz’s Educational Department offers its support in the didactic activities of the local territory’s schools, providing teachers with resources, skills and opportunities to organised educational processes on the image and workshop practices shaped to the specific requirements of each school and adopting a multidisciplinary approach.
La Scuola adotta un monumento
The Fondazione Merz is among the monuments involved in the national “La Scuola adotta un monumento” (‘Schools adopt a monument’) project, promoted for the City of Turin by ITER. The project connects citizens with the city’s heritage, enabling a school to “adopt” a cultural asset. By establishing a long-lasting relationship with the teachers acting as contacts, the Educational Department of the Fondazione Merz undertakes activities to support the schools’ own programmes with a continuous presence, proposing methods and practices that tie in with the educational courses adopted in the classroom, with a particular focus on interdisciplinarity. The collaboration involves a cycle of three school years; at the end of each year, the students become the protagonists of an event open to the public in the Fondazione, illustrating the progress made and sharing the results of the experience acquired. Since the 2016/2017 school year, the Educational Department has accompanied the pupils of a primary and junior high school of the Istituto Comprensivo Rita Levi – Montalcini.
