Monday, November 28th 2022 – Istituto Comprensivo Rinnovata Pizzigoni, Milan
ABITO meeting organised by Italia Music Lab and Equaly will be divided into two sections.
The first part, lasting two hours, will take place in the gymnasium, where together, the organisation and realisation of a party on a dance floor, with a DJ playing, people having fun, and attendants (impersonated by the students) will be simulated.
The second part, lasting two hours, in the classroom. Here there will be a reflection on the behaviour of individuals and the group during the dancefloor simulation, then students will talk about how each of them would like people to behave during parties, so that parties are spaces in which everyone and everyone feels safe and comfortable, just like other community spaces: the neighbourhood, the city, the school, social media, etc.
THE PROJECT "ABITO"
ABITO is a civic education course that accompanies secondary school students on the path to conscious citizenship through the languages of art and culture. ABITO is conceived and promoted by a group of cultural institutions governed by women who care about the development of a society of equals: Le Dimore del Quartetto, Fondazione Arnoldo e Alberto Mondadori, Triennale Milano Teatro, Museo Teatrale alla Scala, Equaly and Italia Music Lab.
In this context, Le Dimore del Quartetto proposes the MetaFour project a journey of words and music based on a direct dialogue with the musicians of a string quartet, which raises awareness of the importance of collaboration, listening and the fundamental values that guide a civil society.
The pilot edition of ABITO is held at the Istituto Comprensivo Rinnovata Pizzigoni from September to December 2022 with the support of Fondazione EOS – Edison Orizzonte Sociale.
