Thanks to the contribution of the Marche Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, for the second consecutive year a new MUS-E project will start in Fermo in November.
Last year, despite the pandemic and the fact that only four out of sixteen workshops were held, the children of the “Salvadori” primary school in Lido San Tommaso (Fermo) were still able to successfully attend a workshop project developed around the theme of fulfilling one’s wishes.
A special programme based on the popular novel “The Chocolate Factory” was developed for the children to work on this theme, giving voice to their dreams and wishes. The workshop was divided into sixteen one-and-a-half-hour sessions, during which the children asked themselves what they wished they could to do in their free time.
The programme was carried out with a third-grade class from the “Salvadori” primary school in Lido San Tommaso (Fermo), a multi-ethnic group with about 70% of the pupils either of foreign nationality or of foreign origin.
The workshop project, led by artists Carla Rossetti (theatre) and Lucia De Angelis (music), included making “golden tickets” (inspired by Willy Wonka, the fictional character and protagonist of “The Chocolate Factory”), on which the children wrote their wishes and shared them by singing, thus expressing their desire for freedom and to change their lives together. Some of these golden tickets were customised with references to the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy.
At a special time in our history, when our actions are conditioned by the pandemic, we helped them let their minds free to imagine any scenario they wanted, cultivating hope and enjoying a moment of carefree joy.
