Last December we visited one of the Milanese schools, together with Cristina Gabetti author of the book, and Milan’s Minister of Education Francesco Cappelli, to explain the importance of cultural and environmental issues to the children receiving the handbook.
Check out at TG3 Regionale RAI’s news service.
The theme of this year’s competition was inspired by Expo: ” Welcoming signage”, that is, creating at least five welcome signs/signboards that provide useful information for visitors from all over the world.
Given the focus on Milan, La Fondazione deemed appropriate to grant three awards to the schools in Milan and another three to schools across the country, as it was done in past editions.
For having explained how, in a school environment, the love for nature goes hand in hand with the ability to host.
For having created a comprehensive signposting system with passion, originality, ironic concepts and reflections on what can help Expo visitors find their way better.
For having created a painted poster, represented by children’s colourful handprints, that fully captures the spirit of Expo.
Another three special mentions at local level acknowledged the efforts of the classes or schools that successfully depicted their territory.
SPECIAL MENTION – CITTÀ DI BERGAMO
SPECIAL MENTION – CITTÀ DI REGGIO EMILIA
SPECIAL MENTION – CITTÀ DI MATERA
For having created an innovative road signposting for bicycles, suggesting the need to increase sustainable transport in the city of Milan.
