Book in the didactic activities

The education to the landscape should not be pointed to the pupils, who are, however, the main subjects of this action, but, because of the importance of the situation, it should reach also the adults in extra-school fields, where they can learn, reflect and elaborate on the basic theme of the landscape. It is for this reason that the educative projects, that have been realized with children, includedb also their parents and grandparents and, sometimes, acquaintances and seniors of the rest home.


The aim of these educational activities can be summarized in four main points:

  1. Knowing our landscape. Detecting the elements of which it is composed of, understanding the differences between the landscapes and noticing the transformationes. Understanding the landscape in which you live means understand better yourself. 

"Sarebbe utile introdurre ed importante che lo studio del paesaggio entrasse nelle scuole, divenendo, oltre che l’oggetto di una vera e propria disciplina, la base di una educazione a vedere, che  aiuti a capire il significato degli esseri umani sulla Terra” [Turri, 1974]

  1. Learning to see as element to learn how to act in a proper way. "Education contributes to the recognition of the man's action effects over the environment and the concerning hiring of responsability. You can pay attention to the prevail perspective of knowledge and the one of action" [Benedetta Castiglioni, 2006].    
  2. Respecting what you need to observe the landscape. So as animal and vegetable spacies in danger of exstincion are stored and protected, in the same way also the landscape have to be respected and protected, because it risks the "exstincion".
  3. Transmitting the landscape to the future generations.According to the logic of the sustainable developement, that is on the basis of the process of Agenda 21, also the landscape have to be protected without compromising the quality, and it have to be transmitted to the future generations.

The classes, that have been involved into the educational itinerary of Ecomuseum visited the territory in order to do a partecipated examination of the places. Afterwards, the classes edited their map of the territory that they had visited or of the whole community.  These maps have been very useful for the working group and the editing of the map as starting point on which they could work in order to realize the Parish Map.
