"It's great to be here!": The Erasmus students and those of Giffoni Valle Piana together in the Multimedia Valley

In the Green Room of the Multimedia Valley the looks, yesterday afternoon, were serious, concentrated and fascinated: over 30 young students from Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic - visiting Giffoni Valle Piana thanks to the "Erasmus + / Key Action 2" program - assisted, together with their peers of the "F.lli Linguiti" Institute, to the screening of some short films of the Elements +10 section, presented during the past editions of the Giffoni Film Festival.

The reception and the debate - both in English, thanks to the support of the teachers Daniela Marková, Aneta Wollrabová, Mojca Bregar Goričar, Edita Krošl, Anna Zawadzka, Sylwia Bombała, Mariarosaria Trotta and Doriana Vecchio - were coordinated by Manlio Castagna and Antonia Grimaldi. Three short films seen by the students, curious and happy with the experience: "How Tommy Lemenchick Became a Grade 7 Legend" by Bastien Alexandre; "The Trophy Thief", directed by Dave Edwardz; "The Red Thunder", by Alvaro Ron.

The foreign students from the "Velika Dolina" schools in Brezice (Slovenia), "Skola Podstawowa" in Warsaw (Poland) and "Zakladni Skola materska Barvirska" in Liberec (Czech Republic) will stay in Italy until Sunday 3 March. With their families in Giffoni Valle Piana: the project ("Building a better future by addressing ecology and immigration problems through innovative teaching methods, multiculturalism and multilingualism") is focused on major current issues, such as the migration of peoples, ecology and multiculturalism, to be tackled and analyzed also through cinematographic language.
