“It is an important experience for our children, they ask for concreteness, it is not so easy for them” that in days many will be called to vote for the first time. The goal of the project, underlines the coordinator Antonio Silvio Calò, who accompanies the students together with the English teacher Claudia Re, is to bring students closer to “institutions”, to deepen the theme of “service” in public affairs and that of “migrants”. Today’s meeting, September 20, with the premier is “significant, he broke the ice with very spontaneous phrases and they felt called into question”.
