Faenza
Our town – Faenza
Faenza, which lies in Romagna, is a town of about 56.000 inhabitants. Faenza (Faventia)
dates back to the Roman age. It is worldwide famous for its pottery : the Faïence.

Il Girasole
Our school is divided into 5 buildings: Secondary
school Cova-Lanzoni, Primary Schools Tolosano
and Pirazzini, Kindergartens Il Girasole and
Giardino dei Sogni and is located in the city center
of Faenza. Our pupils have very different cultural
and economic backgrounds. In the last years the
number of migrant children attending our classes
has strongly increased (currently more than 30%
are not Italian), posing to the teachers a new
challenge. We activated specific language
laboratories and intercultural projects with the
support of local and non-local institutions,
fostering a higher cultural cohesion and
guaranteeing to the majority of foreign students
the fulfillment of their educational duty.
Our school differentiates itself for the consistent
participation in projects and contests, many of
them intercultural and related to art, and for the
activities aimed at integrating children with
special needs. Moreover it started a collaboration
with the Education Department of the University
of Bologna offering training projects for future
teachers.
