and companions from other schools in Italy on specific topics. Over the course of the evening, she received the book and the Certificate of Participation, proudly living an intensive year as a writer, illustrator and reader. The students of the fifth class of Carano recall, with short interventions, the books published in the five years of participation
to the format: They have donated a copy, in a symbolic way, to the courses that continue the experience. The Staffetta book has become a symbol of a handover, a “cognitive artifact full of emotions, creating bonds and a sense of belonging to a single large school. The honor of the event was the writer and journalist Sara Magnoli, who managed to engage children in their speech
and boys present in the invention of a detective story. He took his cue from the malfunction of the microphones, he hypothesized the disappearance of the electrician technician and, just as the children invented the details of a mysterious murder behind the scenes, the power went out, into the room left in the dark. The blackout, which took place on the evening of June 1st in Sessa Aurunca, helped to create an atmosphere of tension, typical of a
yellow story, with a real surprise effect for everyone present. One of the parents present in the room managed to interpret the character of the electrician behind the scenes, who died tragically: the situation developed into a humorous story, as the body, illuminated by the torches of cell phones, laughing and moving. Sara Magnoli’s performance demonstrated to the presenters the authentic emotional involvement of children and adolescents in the invention of collective stories, which
represents the success of Creative Writing Training Courses: interdisciplinary courses that motivate study, research, reading, collaborative learning.
