Thanks to the project “Others, but the same” – growing as world city sense, I had the opportunity to help the little city sense of (the Kinderwelt(en)) kindergarten to discover the similarities and differences between different cultures.

Each of our weekly meetings was inspired by something: a song, dance, toy, story or some part of clothes which are a piece of the Italian folk tradition. Sometimes I was inspired by something from the natural world, like volcanoes, snow or seeds and of course special events and holidays. With the help of Gaia’s Italian-speaking doll, the children came into the contact with all of it in a playful way. “During my work I have understood that every child carries the values of friendliness ,integration and  interaction. I would like to continue working to promote this wealth for their future adult life.”
