Brought to the theater and also during the “five days” of the workshops that the Gen Verde artists set up with the students of the IIS Cariati. The event was sponsored by the province of Cosenza, by the municipalities of Cariati and Crosia Mirto, in collaboration with the association “New Year in Paradise” and with some local companies, which contributed to the excellent success of the initiative. The Project “We’re generating new relationships!” it was a particularly important event configured for the IIS Cariati, as it represents a training opportunity of high social, artistic and musical importance. It develops, in fact, with the “Coaches” of Gen Verde through the concert / show, in front of the multidisciplinary artistic workshop (singing, dancing, theater and percussion), which last 5 days with the participation of forty students from all complexes of the IIS Cariati, where they were encouraged to develop and rediscover existing talents, in a harmony of different styles and rhythms, talents and cultures of the world. With great enthusiasm from DS Aiello, as well as from all the school staff and young participants, the exceptional Gen Verde immediately came into harmony with the young people, bringing them talent and professionalism accompanied by laughter, friendship and human warmth. During the workshops, IIS students from the theater / dance group learned the techniques of acting, stage presence, diction and rhythmic movements; while the percussion group experimented with ensemble music, they became aware of the rhythm, the time, the harmony. The activities of the project ended with the concert, before the welcome of the DS Sara Giulia Aiello, in which the musicians played some of the most significant pieces from their repertoire, including “I believe in us” and the moving song “Who will cry for you “dedicated to a migrant girl found lifeless on one of the many beaches of the Mediterranean, now too often transformed into a grave for many lives trying to escape persecution and wars. Speaking of the current tragic historical period, the Gen Verde were also applauded by a delegation of Ukrainian citizens hosted in Cariati by several families. DS Aiello is visibly pleased that “the values of interculture confront us with the choice of managing relationships with new cultures in terms of mutual commitment, solidarity and interdependent relationships. In all of this, schools can play a strategic role , because the current challenge of educational institutions lies in the recognition, study and valorisation of the difference between cultures, the understanding of difference as a resource “. A challenge that in this sense is largely overcome with the success of this event, which is configured on the one hand as the conclusion of a project, on the other hand as the beginning of new human relationships. “It is through the comparison and recognition of differences that the foundations are built for a new solidarity – commented DS Aiello – and thus counteract all forms of racism and intolerance. Mutual knowledge of their own cultural universe thus overcomes prejudices and stereotypes “.
