Organising an event requires skills, planning, synergies, and creativity – all ingredients needed to promote local areas and their unique resources.

This is how the new edition of AppenninoLab, FEG’s project aimed at Genoa upper secondary schools, came to light.

Goal: to plan and hold LA GIORNATA DELL’APPENNINO (THE APPENINES’ DAY). Six classes from six Genoa schools, motivated and guided by as many nationally recognised mentors, join efforts to organise an event looking to promote the Apennines and their environmental, cultural, and gastronomic resources.

From local produce to cuisine, from outdoor activities to entertainment, Italy’s mountain chain offers countless opportunities, which – thanks to specific skills that they have learnt at school and supported by their mentor – the pupils will have to be able to identify and share with others, creating an event also involving and engaging the local population. Apennine villages and their residents will indeed play a key role, first and foremost that of hosting of the event.
